Amir Khan claims that he does not expect a lengthy boxing fight when Floyd Mayweather takes on Conor McGregor on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Billed as the ‘billion dollar fight,’ a lot of people are expected to tune in to watch the fight. Mayweather comes into the fight with an unbeaten record and he is widely regarded as one of the greatest boxers of all time. He comes up against UFC lightweight champion McGregor, who appears to be out of depth at this level.
There are multiple avenues to watch this fight, as one can even get access to the Mayweather v McGregor live stream amongst others. Even though Khan does not appear to be a great fan of the fight, one can be sure about getting top quality boxing action. This is largely down to the two different styles of the sport which are about to battle it out for the greatness.
Mayweather may be unbeaten, but the 40-year-old is seriously putting his unbeaten record on the line with this fight. McGregor is not only young, but the UFC lightweight champion has some serious strengths to his game. He employs an unorthodox style which may be tough for Mayweather to handle – especially at this time. The last big fight for Mayweather was against Manny Pacquiao. While he managed to remain unbeaten and a win by unanimous decision was not seen as the best move by many. Incredibly, Mayweather was two years younger back then.
The biggest advantage for Mayweather has been his defensive side of the game. Perhaps, it explains the lack of any knockout victory in the last six years he has been in the ring. Khan thinks that this game is a perfect opportunity for Mayweather to end this run. Punters can also consider backing Mayweather for a knockout victory, as it is available at a much better price than going with an outright win for the undefeated star.
