“There is no reason for Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor to be fighting each other. No reason at all. The mere idea of matching the semi-retired Mayweather and the UFC loudmouth McGregor was enough of a joke to keep us laughing every few weeks that we heard each man bring it up, especially as we knew that the powers-that-be would make such a farcical match impossible to happen anywhere except maybe the moon. Simply put, there were too many safeguards to prevent this match from happening, too many obstacles, and we could all laugh it off. But no one’s laughing anymore. Now reality has become more terrifying than fiction.” From “Welcome To The Circus” by Danny Howard
