This Mayweather vs McGregor simulation may be too realistic
MANILA, Philippines - How much of the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor talk is realistic, and how much is simply cheap publicity? Only time will tell.
But for those who cannot sit around waiting for time to do so, here's a simulation from Bleacher Report of the boxing vs mixed martial arts "dream fight" - on WWE2K16. The action plays out with the recently-retired boxing champion Mayweather competing the way many have characterized him. (READ: Mayweather, McGregor tease 'MMA vs Boxing' super-fight)
While Mayweather (49-0, 26 knockouts) would certainly have the edge in skill over any boxer, the UFC featherweight champ McGregor is no slouch in the hand skills department himself.
The fight still remains just talk at the moment, but it wouldn't be the first time a boxer has submitted himself to a spectacle with a non-boxer. Take for instance this exhibition between then-heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali and pro wrestler Antonio Inoki from 1976.
It's nice to speculate but this fight will be a hard one to believe until a signed contract materializes. – Rappler.com
