    • what is funny is Manny won’t carry him like Floyd did. He would just destroy him. I pray it doesn’t happen. McGregor doesn”t deserve the pay day

      • CB no he wouldn’t. He’s found religion which has taken his killer instinct somewhat. Which is why the ko loss to Marquez.

    • McGregor would do anything for a dollar? No mention of Pac-Man? No criticism? Really wild how Pac-Man fans just excuse and overlook everything he does

  • Talk about your double standard: Been seeing a whole lot of Davis grabbing his lady at an event. But where was the outrage when Kovolev tried to force himself on a women? He then kicks her dog when it tried to rightfully help it’s owner . Punches the woman full strength, giving her a broken jaw and concussion. Didnr hear anything about it, no punishment and was awarded a big money fight against Canelo.
