Conor McGregor, left, and Floyd Mayweather Jr. are shown training in Las Vegas.  Look at any boxing website, and the comments will largely all be the same. Mayweather Jr.'s fight with Conor McGregor is a joke, a spectacle that has little to do with real boxing. No reason to spend two cents on it, much less $100, when there's a real super fight coming up a few weeks later between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez. AP Photo/John Locher, File
