Lennox Lewis: I wouldn't buy Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

Lennox Lewis has branded Floyd Mayweather's comeback against MMA fighter Conor McGregor "ridiculous".

McGregor will make his professional boxing debut against Mayweather at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Aug. 26 in a fight predicted to make millions.

But some boxing fans -- including former undisputed world heavyweight champion Lewis -- will not be buying the fight on pay-per-view.

"I can't take it serious," Lewis told ESPN. "Mayweather is the best in his weight class, no one can touch him in boxing. He's a pugilist of the highest order so for another man from a different sport to fight him?

"It's ridiculous to me. You are talking about one discipline where you can use only your hands and only a few can do it. Every battle sport always starts with your hands, but they are two totally different sports.

"Floyd will stop him. He's just too good at boxing for McGregor and McGregor is just too inexperienced. I wouldn't buy it -- but I would be interested in the result. To me, I know who is going to win already so there's no use in watching it."

Despite dismissing Mayweather-McGregor as a competitive fight, Lewis sees the appeal of boxing's biggest star fighting MMA's top name.

"I don't believe it would damage boxing because is always going to be about man will always want to fight and man will always want to know the result," Lewis said.

"I love Bruce Lee and the other disciplines and when he fought against other fighters, you wanted to see the differences, so I can see the appeal."

Damn, Lennox looks old. It's a shame that even rock stars and prize fighters have to get old.

Did you see the fight? Now I know you're not a fight fan - that was a butchering. 

You should catch it on YouTube! 

I know, I know...you're one of those teenagers who thinks Tyson is the GOAT and never ever lost...handily.

Butchering? Took him EIGHT ROUNDS to get a guy who was at least TWELVE YEARS past his prime out of there.

It's an exaggeration to be sure, but anyone who knows shit about boxing knew Tyson was going to get smashed in that fight.

No more an exaggeration than these forums are rife with daily.

Tyson had no shot in hell. He was always a front runner.

Why? I expect Conor to lose. That position is unchanged.

You're not even a Mayweather fan. You don't even respect fighters. Stop pretending to have an opinion on fighting.

Bruce lee was a street fighter, not a competitor who hides behind RULES like floyd bitchweather.

 

If u knew anything about him, he was about the most effective fighting to destroy your opponent no matter the rule. He did this especialyl because he was a small guy so he had to use every trick in the book.

 

Look at his fingers and knuckles, they are hardned after years of training for it. He could eye poke anyone and never risk a broken or broken knuckles - which just about every boxer does when they fight in the street cuz they cant throw a proper punch without gloves and handwraps. 

 

Every top martial artist who has followed bruce respect his skills, and they could see that just why the way he moves and implements his techniques and the way he talks about it - he is a very intelligent man who had heaps of knowledge about martial arts waaay before anyone else. People like u probably wont understand this, hey middle-to high intelligence isnt for everyone aye ;) 

 

"ubb ubb, he did movies, ubb ub.. his just an actor !!" - hed smash ur face in.

I really loved the Oscar vs Shaq bout and I think a large part of that is because it was far more competitive than what we can expect Mayweather/McGregor to be. I'll eventually store Mayweather/McGregor DVD right next to Shag/Oscar, Ali/Inoki, and Mayweather/Big Show, right on its own shelf in my wall insert.

Here it is for y'all's enjoyment

This. Tyson did well in the early rounds but then Lennox started out boxing him. If Tyson could have kept it a brawl, who knows what could have happened.
