VIDEO: Skip Bayless – Floyd Mayweather has pillow fight punching power, Conor wins
After it took less than two full rounds for Conor McGregor to capture his second UFC title at UFC 205 on Saturday night, the talks of the UFC kingpin going up against boxing great Floyd Mayweather have resurfaced yet again.
During a recent segment on FOX Sports, sports personality Skip Bayless weighed in on the possibility of a boxing match between McGregor and Mayweather.
Who does Skip think wins in Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather?
“I think Conor McGregor could beat Floyd Mayweather Jr., especially as he nears 40 years of age and has pillow fight punching power left in him, if that,” Bayless said. “I gotta tell ya, if Floyd watched [UFC 205], and I’m gonna guess that Floyd did watch this, I think there is no way we would risk entering the ring [with McGregor]. Not the Octagon, just the boxing ring, we’re talking about boxing here. 12 oz. gloves. All Floyd’s rules. Conservative, conventional boxing rules. I think that Conor McGregor would give him all he wanted.”
“There is no way that Floyd could knock out out Conor McGregor,” Bayless continued. “I just don’t think it would happen because Conor McGregor is the baddest man on the planet.”
