Well his look and demeanour looks very similar to the stereotypes ,mainly the lads who cant run or kick a ball who have over the past few years taken to the Gym and covering their bodies in stupid tattoos ( another minor annoyance of mine)
So its all for the money , doest the boxing control boards who ever they have tomsanction such bouts ? And I was under the impression there was some kind of lists for contenders ?
Its all a load of old bollox to me.

What the fuck are you on about?

McGregor was granted a boxing licence months ago by Nevada.

So if two people with licences want to fight and the venue and referee etc. all meet the standards required then they can dig the head off each other no probs.

Contenders for what? What the fuck are you on about? There are about three or four boxing authorities so each will have titles for the various weight classes so that's why you could have someone only fighting in one weight class with a few belts, that's why you have unified champions etc, because they hold belts from the different authorities/promotions, but also you could have some fighters going up or down a weight class so he could be the champion of say two belts from the one authority, each separate organisation will have their own rules and make their own decisions as to how often defences need to be made and who the various contenders should be ranked, so you could hold a belt at a weight, step up a weight, win that belt, but you're going to have to decide and agree if you're going to go back down a weight to defend your first title.

But regardless, that has fuck all, I mean literally nothing at all to do with this fight!!

Your post is ridiculous! McGregor is a UFC champion. That's a different fuckin sport! Ie he has no boxing titles, nothing to defend, he's not stepping over anybody or using his status to jump to the head of any queue.

Mayweather is fuckin officially retired, he's coming out of retirement for this fight, he's had his boxing career, this is pure pride and money, that's why his nickname is money.

The hype is because it's to see if a fighter from the UFC can make the switch and fight a boxer for the first time and hold his own.

And not just any boxer, a legend, he's not a favourite of mine but his record is probably the best ever, he's never been beaten. And he's coming out of retirement.

So there's the draw.

Plus, guys in their 20s and 30s today have tattoos. That's just a fact. Girls have them too and a lot of girls are attracted to them. It's just the current culture. I know a lot of guys who have half or full sleeves that are quite thin, they aren't very muscly etc. but it's a massive trend especially in the late 20s to 30s bracket and tbf, top tattooists are, and in my opinion, rightly so, regarded in an urban artist kind of way. Being able to design a tattoo and then implement it onto someone's skin in a well done fashion is incredibly skillful.

I'm not talking about getting love and hate on your knuckles or a liver bird or a Red Devil or Dave loves Sally 4 Eva on a fat arm,

E.g. Here there is a guy who lives in a town at the very top of NI that people from the whole of Ireland travel to use, if you want a top tattoo in Belfast, there's one guy who specialises in Asian art and another guy who does everything, but you are talking a 6 month waiting list unless you know someone and can call in a favour, I've two designs picked for ages but I want to get into proper nick before I get either done and also I can't really justify the £ over other priorities plus I want to get an all clear on the health front because certain things can interfere and get put back if you are currently in the middle of a tattoo process or have had one recently done.

But yeah there are shite tattoos out there.

But you're just moaning for the sake of it because you aren't as young as you once were, and I agree in principle with twats being meat heads, hogging a gym and trying to look intimidating because their own hormone levels are fucked.

But that has the square root of fuck all to do with McGregor who's tattoos are very brash but I doubt local dedicated mixed martial artists are spending shit loads of time on a treadmill beside you at you're local pure gym, they'll be spending time at a local specialist gym at classes or carrying out specific training.

So unless you've joined a local fighters gym, the clue will be loads of heavy bags and boxing stations where your swimming pool should be, then you're totally wrong, and if you've joined a fighters gym and you're bitching about it being full of fighters then that's you being a goat. And I don't mean Greatest Of All Time.


I mean baaaaaa.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

I know fuck all about Boxing even less about UFC in fact just googled ,looks even more stupid than Boxing but thats dat.I didnt know the Merryweather had retired i know fuck all about his career either until ? Did he fight Hatton ?
Anyroads i aint moaning like you say if two blokes want to knock ten bells out of each ,but even more stupid imo someone wants to pay to watch ,then fair dos ,i just dont get it ,especially people turning up to watch them argue on stage ,i mean how gullable can you get?
I agree that Boxing has lost its attraction from the days of Ali when you knew who was champion.My nephew takes his little to boxing hes only 8 the other one flatly refuses ,its crazy.No i would much prefer them to kick or knock a ball around.

As for Tatuuus as the locals say i just dont get it ,what are you gunna look like when your 75? Its not like a daft haircut or wearing hipsters? And i have never seen one single attractive thing about a girl with a tatuu. They are appalling imo on young women ,even worse on older women,esp those with Chinese ( careful) writing :-o
I have never seen a tatuuu and gone 'that looks cool ' We always associate them with Pirates or the Royal Navy.
But hey some of the lads have em and they usually get ripped .

I know, it's dreadful, all that getting healthy and "ripped" so they don't look like fat cunts are will be on insulin by the time they are 55, I mean fuck sake, imagine wanting to feel comfortable and confident and stay in shape and let's be honest, be attractive to the opposite sex.

Fuckin healthy twats, working out and getting ripped. Should be drinking tins of sugar and pumping money into McDonalds and coca colas pockets, wankers.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

No that would be the meat heads, you are completely confusing two totally different mindsets and groups of people,

Younger guys that are ripped, I'm taking that to mean lean and shredded, spend more time beating protein into them and watching their diet than they do on 'roids

McGregor is roasting Maywether at every press conference. He talks a great game. He's single handedly selling this fight

Yeah I watched them all, Floyd was floundering like fuck, I was beginning near the end to wonder if he had taken one too many punches to the head but he's a defensive fighter,

I don't know what his craic is but he just walks about shouting yeeeeahhh all the time and hard work is what!

Same thing at every press conference apart from licking Dana Whites hole and calling McGregor a faggot.

McGreggor had the typical cheeky Irish response, Northern Ireland is the same, wee cheeky response and Mayweather is totally off his game. IF McGregor is able to break Mayweathers guard just once, it'll be a totally different fight, McGregor hits like a fuckin wrecking ball, for his size and muscle definition, the power in his left is almost unbelievable, if you've watched a few of his UFC bouts, you've guys he was expected to struggle against looking up in disbelief in the first round going what the fuck just happened

Yeah it's that Irish wit and comment that Maywether can't handle. And the fact he hogs the limelight and plays to the crowd. He's utterly dominating, like Maywether did when he fought Hatton. Boots on the other foot now.

Has McGregor mentioned Maywether's wife beating conviction?

Yeah, I'm surprised that's not come up... yet... some crack like "I'm gonna slap you about like you did your missus"...
"Badges, to god-damned hell with badges! We have no badges. In fact, we don't need badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges, you god-damned cabrón and ching' tu madre! Come out from that shit-hole of yours. I have to speak to you."
