The build-up to Mayweather-McGregor could be the best part

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The real fun will come before the fight, and what a spectacle it should be. Put Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor on a stage together to promote their fight and anything can happen.

Put them together in a ring, though, and it’s an absolute mismatch.

That’s the first thing to consider when all the talk begins about what a devastating puncher McGregor is. The first thing to think about when it’s suggested that Mayweather may have lost some of his skills after two years of traveling the world in his private jet.

If you thought you were snookered out of $100 when Mayweather fought a snoozer against Manny Pacquiao, you might keep a firm hand on your wallet. The greatest defensive fighter of his time against a guy who has never thrown a punch in a pro boxing match?

This could be 12 rounds of tedium on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas that makes Mayweather-Pacquiao look like Hagler-Hearns in comparison. It might be some kind of bizarre disqualification when McGregor finds out Mayweather doesn’t stick his chin out to be hit the way some UFC fighters do or really does try to kick Mayweather when he’s down.

What it won’t be is any kind of legitimate fight, no matter how much rabid UFC fans want desperately to
