Why do we think that Conor McGregor will win the fight against Jake Paul?
On Aug 26, 2017, McGregor’s first professional boxing match was with the boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather.
McGregor lost the fight but after analyzing all the rounds of the fight we will notice that McGregor’s counterattack, footwork, and slipping punches technique are very good which makes him a tough opponent.
The only reason McGregor lost the fight is that he is not used to the number of rounds in boxing, MMA has 5 rounds with a 5-minute duration Boxing has a max of 12 rounds with 3 minutes duration which exhausted him and gave Mayweather the chance to win the fight.
Jake Paul is not as experienced and fast as Mayweather. He will not be able to slip all McGregor’s punches or be a good counterattacker like Mayweather.

The only way for Jake paul to survive and win the fight is by using his reach to keep McGregor away and to exhaust him, if he does not use this strategy he will lose the fight against McGregor with a possible knockout.

We strongly believe that McGregor will win the fight if he learned from his mistake in his previous fight with Floyd Mayweather and worked hard to finish the fight against Jake Paul with a knockout in the first 3 rounds before being exhausted.
