Doctors Claim McGregor vs Mayweather Dangerous Event

The young lad from Ireland told his father he would be a self made millionaire by the time he was twenty five. His father’s reaction to his proclamation was laughter after the ambitious statement. Having quit his job as a plumber the now famous young man has reached his goal albeit a year later. The now famous twenty six year old championship ultimate mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor is about to take on the world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the T-Mobile Arena on August 26 in Las Vegas.

The latest on the colourful Irishman and his opponent comes from a group of doctors that are saying this fight may be dangerous for the participants especially McGregor. The Association of Ringside Physicians believes Mayweather vs McGregor should never have been sanctioned.  The highly strung and gregarious McGregor isn’t letting the recent warning phase him at all.  

The Association, which is made up of more than 100 ringside doctors who focus on preserving boxer safety in America’s biggest fights, believes Mayweather vs McGregor should never have been sanctioned such is the threat posed to the mixed martial arts champion.

M.D. Larry Lovelace, president of the of Ringside Physicians organization commented, “We were very surprised this bout was even sanctioned and was going to be permitted to carry on,” Lovelace continued, “The thing I really fear, truly fear, is that somebody’s going to get really hurt in this upcoming fight.” The Nevada State Athletic Commission is responsible for giving the nod on the contest. The commission’s executive director, Bob Bennett, defended the decision for the ‘super-fight’ between Mayweather and McGregor. Mr. Bennett has maintained that the Irishman was a top athlete who was "the taller, longer, stronger more powerful opponent" of the two.

Saturday’s epic bout has a lot of funds tied up in it. The state of Nevada receives 8 per cent of the gross revenue from every ticket sold at a boxing event in Nevada while the Athletic commission gets 25 per cent of that amount.
