Paul Stanley from Kiss and Phil Anselmo of Pantera made their predictions for this weekend’s big fight between Floyd Mayweatherand Conor McGregor.
Noted fight fan Anselmo, who used to write a column for Boxing Insidergave 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.
