Should that fight between Floyd Mayweather and Connor Mcgregor count on Floyd's record?

Floyd boxed for decades, was a world champion and focused all his training in boxing vs Connor an MMA fighter who only focused some of his training in boxing and had never had a boxing match prior

seems kind of cheap for a long reigning champion of the craft to fight someone in their very first boxing match he made alot of money but still cheap nonetheless

    No it shouldn't.  But money rules.  If you take that away from Mayweather, than we must comb through history and take a few others from some past champions. 

    Floyd Patterson, former heavyweight champion, once defended the title against Pete Rademacher, who was an Olympic gold medalist but had no professional fights.  

    There are other such examples.  Money played a factor in each of these events.  Floyd and Connor stood to make a bunch of money because the public was willing to play for it.

    I believe their bout shouldn't count.  But I understand why it does.

    Yes but maybe the Pacquiao fight shouldn't since Manny embarassed the sport and fought like a little bi*ch.

    I thought it was a joke of a fight. But coming from Mayweather I wasnt surprised.

    Boxing rules between 2 professionals, so yes.

    It was a boxing match, so it counts on Floyd Mayweather"s record.
