The other .001% knows how much he likes his money, and is probably realizing he is getting ready to cash his last paycheck, and may want just one more.


He ain't no spring chicken.

I think Connor will get it twice as bad as Gatti did. Mayweather will get very comfortable with the skill and talent gap and start lighting him up-



Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

I don't understand how you make so much money and don't pay your taxes first thing. That is a giant hole you would never want to let get out of control. Also makes a lot more sense now why he's taking this fight,

A- he's not a smart person... everything I've seen he can't effectively read and doesn't drive.

B- he has "people" to do shit for him... and I'd wager his people are idiots

C- I'd imagine he like many stupid rich athletes, make bad decisions... some of those may have built up debt/loss/problems which he keeps taking fights to fix, and doesn't think ahead to pay the tax on the money, because he needs the cash.

I can't buy that the man is dumb. Maybe he can't read idk, but an athlete at that level cannot possibly just be plain stupid. You would never make it that far. He probably places too much trust in people who are fucking him would be my guess and spends way too much money. I wouldn't even know what to do with one of those $100 million dollar checks, let alone the 20 or so I'm sure he's gotten.

Would you consider Mike Tyson to be intelligent?


I could make a list of top athletes that are/were as dumb as a box of rocks.

Not intelligent but not straight dumb either. Floyd also is very smart with his "brand" and how he markets himself which represents to me that he has some actual level of intelligence.

Anybody read the article? He already paid $26M in 2015 and the amount still owed could be easily covered with a small portion of his existing assets. The case from his legal/financial team is that it's a pain to sell non-liquid assets and in 60 days they'll just write a check for what's owed.

When you have this type of money you don't just have $5M sitting in a bank account. FDIC insurance is only good up to $250k per account holder per bank. You'd need multiple accounts across multiple banks just to have 'cash' available at any time (if you wanted it to be protected). Then you have investments that could have penalties or tax implications for selling at the 'wrong' time.

Just more fluff/hype for the fight.

Yea that's exactly what I said. But since they both made more money than you'll ever conceive of in your life, they must be at least better than you, right?

Of course they're better fighters than I am.


Is that a real question?

You seem to have a problem with simple reading comprehension. I said they're simply better than you because of the amount of money they made.

Not my idea but I'm ok with my placement. Hope you're ok with your midlife crisis, trolling and talking down to guys in their 20's on the internet.

It's like the people using title loans to pay their rent a center bill only on a completely different scale.

That's pretty dumb, lol.


I also forgot to add, he probably got paid at different times... his fight purse was one time, then after all the PPV revenue came in... just didn't withhold on one of them.

I can't believe the amount of people on social media and in person that truly seem to think Conor will win this thing.



I hope I can land a few gentlemen's bets.
