Telegraph– Rory McIlroy has expressed concern that the big fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather could be ‘fixed’ in some way. McGregor, who has met McIlroy on several occasions at UFC events, is making his professional boxing debut on August 26. McIlroy, who is an avid fight fan, was asked about the fight at his press conference ahead of this week’s Northern Trust. “Certainly that’s all I’ve done is follow the build up to this thing. Now that I’m off Twitter and social media, all I do is watch YouTube videos of Conor McGregor,” said McIlroy. “I’m intrigued. He [McGregor] talks a good game. If you just listen to his press conferences and what he says, you would think that this guy, he’s the one with the 50-0 boxing record. “It’s amazing. I’m a big admirer of him. He talks about visualization and the law of attraction and all this stuff that he believes in it and he vocalizes it, and he has the courage to say what he thinks. I’m a believer in that stuff, and I’m a big advocate of that.
“I’m interested just to see how it all plays out, but I just fear that they do all this trash-talking and they go behind the scenes and they are having a laugh and thinking: I can’t believe we are talking all this public for a ride. “We are all buying into it and they are like, can you believe these people believe this. I just hope it doesn’t turn into it and I hope it’s not in any way fixed.”
I have been saying this all along. “The Biggest Fight of The Century” is just a giant circus and a huge marketing ploy. I can totally see McGregor hanging out with Mayweather in front of a fire, both dressed in robes made of Panda, sharing tales, puffing on a fat cuban cigar and having a good laugh at all of us idiots for actually believing they are mortal enemies. It is clearly all about the money, and why wouldn’t it be? It has been projected that the fight will reach 1 billion homes…1 FUCKING BILLION!! Are there even 1 billion TV’s in the world?
As much as I hate that lil bitch Rory McIlroy, I have to agree with him. For all we know McGregor and Mayweather have teamed up to destroy the sport of boxing and Floyd throws the fight somehow. I wouldn’t put it past Money Mayweather to bet against himself. I also wouldn’t put it past Dana White to have some maniacal plan in which Mayweather is apart of. Nothing would surprise me at this point. Which is why I will not be throwing any cake on this fight. I will however be tuning in on Saturday night to witness the circus live.
