5 Lessons We Can Learn From Mayweather-McGregor

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

The superfight of the supercentury — a boxing match between noted boxer Floyd Mayweather and noted martial arts and far less noted boxer, Conor McGregor — ended reasonably predictably.

(Mayweather waited around for a little while, then decided to start beating up McGregor, then won in the tenth round by TKO.)

There was tons of money made all around.

But were there any lessons learned? Sarah found five of them, which she articulated for Asian World Of Martial Arts.

Floyd Mayweather And Conor McGregor Set To Fight

Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor

In what will likely be the most lopsided inter-disciplinary fight since mixed martial artist Randy Couture erased boxer James Toney in an MMA fight in 2010, martial arts loudmouth Conor McGregor is going to take on detestable human/very elite pugilist Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match.

The only good things to come out of this fight are the following:

a) It will help identify which friends of yours are suckers who’d willing pay money to watch this.

b) One of these two — McGregor — is going to get well beaten up.

Dunn not only busted up a lot of gender expectation by writing about boxing, she also took up the sport later in life in order to better understand it.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s new boxing movie Southpaw has been subject to intense scrutiny from the fight community.

One area they’re particularly intrigued by is Gyllenhaal’s workout regime.

In true method actor form he committed to his role.

Burger King’s Connection To Boxing

One of the weirdest things to come out of the Mayweather-Pacquaio fight last week was the appearance of the super-creepy Burger King mascot “The Burger King.”

It seemed really peculiar at the time, but it turns out the King of the Whopper’s presence at fighting events isn’t all that strange.

Sarah explained why in an article for Fightland.
