He makes his opponent miss and then he capitalizes on the mistakes and fights back. He will be applying the same tactics against McGregor, who is known to be aggressive but it might work against him in this fight. Conor though, is a very powerful fighter and has a heavy punch which he will be banking on against Floyd.GLOVES. ARE.

The fight is guaranteed to be a blockbuster as the undefeated boxer Brief Preview:Conor McGregor has been kept pretty much under wraps ever since his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. was announced, emerging occasionally to trash Mayweather only to disappear again behind the closed doors of the UFC training center.It’s not by accident. The biggest selling point of the spectacle that is Saturday night’s 154-pound fight is the unknown.Is McGregor good enough to land a big punch on Mayweather? Did he acquire enough boxing skills in just a few short months to make what should be a lopsided fight competitive?Inquiring minds want to know, and there are enough of them to make this the most watched fight in history. Some 50 million people in the U.S. alone are expected to gather with friends and family to see it all unfold.McGregor weighed in at 153 pounds Friday to 149 1/2 for Mayweather. A crowd that nearly filled the T-Mobile arena – many waving Irish flags – cheered loudly for McGregor while booing Mayweather.advertisementMcGregor’s fan base is driving this fight, united in their fervent hope that the Irish UFC champion can muscle Mayweather around the ring and deliver knockout punches to his head. Sports books in this gambling city have taken so many longshot wagers on McGregor winning by a knockout early that they will suffer their worst loss ever should it actually happen.For the flamboyant McGregor the fight is a chance to make money he couldn’t dream of in the UFC and gain a fan base outside of mixed martial arts. Estimates vary, but he could take home $100 million for a challenge of Mayweather that seemed improbable when he first started talking about it two years ago.He’s got youth on his side (he’s 29 and Mayweather is 40), and he’ll probably go in the ring much heavier than Mayweather after rehydrating following Friday’s weigh-in. He’s also got a reputation as a big puncher and the prevailing wisdom is he’ll try to maul Mayweather much like Marcos Maidana did in their 2014 fight.Other than that, everything favours Mayweather.He’s unbeaten in 49 fights as a pro and has a chance to pass Rocky Marciano on the perfect record list with win No. 50. Not only has he beaten every fighter put in front of him but he’s found ways to deal with big punchers like Miguel Cotto, Diego Corrales and Canelo Alvarez.He’s also a pure boxer with an innate ability to adapt to any fighter put in front of him.The fight is expected to match or surpass the 4.6 million pay-per-views sold for Mayweather’s 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao at $99.95 a household. Industry observers say people across the country will use the telecast as an excuse to party in tense times and 10 people could watch each pay-per-view.Tickets in the arena haven’t done nearly as well, largely because promoters wildly overestimated what people would pay to watch in person. Ringside seats were $10,000 and nosebleed tickets started at $2,500, though prices have been dropping rapidly as the fight approaches.
Mithali Raj scored a composed half-century as India crushed Pakistan by 7 wickets to go one step closer to a semifinal berth in the ICC Women’s World T20 in the West Indies.On Friday, Harmanpreet Kaur became the first Indian woman to score a hundred in T20Is as India got off to a winning start against New Zealand. Two days later, India put up another clinical display to get the better of Pakistan.Pakistan rode on half-centuries from Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar to post 133/7.Fresh from a 52-run defeat to title contenders Australia in their opening match, Pakistan struggled to get going in the face of some accurate Indian bowling.India vs Pakistan Women’s World T20: Match HighlightsAsked to bat first, Pakistan suffered an early blow when Arundhati Reddy dismissed Ayesha Zafar in the very first over thanks to an excellent catch by Veda Krishnamurthy at first slip.Omaima Sohail and Javeria Khan virtually gifted away their wickets with rather silly run-outs to leave Pakistan in trouble at 30/3 in the seventh over.However, Bismah and Nida brought the innings back on track with a 94-run stand. Bismah scored 53 runs off 49 balls while Nida hit a breezy 52 off 35 deliveries which included five boundaries and two hits into the stands.Nida was the beneficiary of a piece of good luck when Veda dropped an easy catch at long-off off Radha Yadav’s bowling even as the ball slipped through for a boundary.The Indians continued to struggle with their fielding even as the Pakistanis piled on the runs with some superb strokeplay.advertisementDayalan Hemalatha brought the Indians back into the game when she sent back both Pakistani batters in the 19th over shortly after they had reached their respective half-centuries.Maroof was caught by Veda at long-on after she had come down the track to a well-flighted delivery. Nida followed her back to the pavilion a couple of deliveries later when a mistimed cut hand an easy catch to Harmanpreet Kaur at cover.The rest of the Pakistani batters never really matched up to the Indian bowlers as apart from Javeria Khan, all of them failed to reach double figures.In response to Pakistan’s 133, India got off to a strong start with Raj and Smriti Mandhana at the top.Mandhana fell soon after a good start but senior pro Mithali kept her cool to bring up a well-deserved half-century.Harmanpreet was fluent at the other end and saw India through after Mithali perished for 56 off 47. By then, the match was almost in India’s grasp with 8 runs needed off 14 ballsVeda Krishna Murthy joined Harmanpreet in the middle and the duo took India home without further damage. Veda did survive a close run out chance but there were no other scares for India with victory coming with six balls remaining.(With inputs from IANS)
