Paul Stanley from Kiss and Phil Anselmo of Pantera made their predictions for this weekend’s big fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.
Noted fight fan Anselmo, who used to write a column for Boxing Insider gave UFC champion McGregor "zero chance" to defeat Floyd Mayweather in a straight-up boxing match. He said, "It’s going to be a one-sided fight, with Floyd carrying him for as long as he possibly can.…Mayweather by a landslide, and he can knock McGregor out anytime he wants."
Stanley also favors Mayweather, and said: "I think people are expecting more of a fight than they might get. You have to remember Floyd Mayweather is a fighter who knows how to punch and get away. The idea of them going toe-to-toe, I think, is a fantasy. Sometimes people are disappointed by Mayweather’s performance. But he’s a technician. The idea that they’re gonna go in and see who can knock the other out — I don’t think that’s in the cards, although I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody winds up on the mat."
The big fight is on Pay-Per-View Saturday (Aug. 26) at 9pm ET.
