Mayweather vs McGregor happening on August 26

16 June, 2017, 03:59 | Author: Kristopher Anderson

"IT'S OFFICIAL!" Mayweather wrote on his Twitter account alongside a short video that included photos of both fighters. Floyd Mayweather's 50th and nearly certainly final pro fight will take place in a little over ten weeks time at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Mayweather-McGregor fight will take place in a boxing ring and be governed by boxing rules.

According to the New York Times, Mayweather's 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao drew almost 4.5 million viewers through pay-per-view. We're going to do UFC Embedded like we do for our fights, and a couple of other things.

McGregor, 28, is the current UFC lightweight champion and former UFC featherweight champion.

Last November, Quigley said he'd be more than willing to lend his expertise to the McGregor camp if the fight was to happen, and now the US-based 26-year-old is predicting a stunning success for his compatriot.

"It's two different sports trying to be one sport", said boxing great Leonard.

White House tries to regroup, but Trump isn't helping
Trump's administration has allowed his comments to go through without vetting - and fact-checking - and its reaction is too late. It might seem frivolous, but as NPR's David Folkenflik, reports it is sharpening the debate over those presidential tweets .

Reports suggest that Mayweather could pocket around $100 million and McGregor, $75 million, irrespective of the outcome of the showdown.

5,000,000 - Amount in dollars paid by Mayweather for a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita - one of the world's rarest cars - a year ago.

The biggest question now is will McGregor be able to touch Mayweather in the upcoming boxing match. The exact amount of money that Mayweather and McGregor will make won't be disclosed because of a confidentiality agreement. "So, there might be more cross-over challenges, I think". "He knows Conor McGregor is coming after him and Floyd's looking to get him up out of there, too".

Though Las Vegas oddsmakers have made Mayweather a heavy 10-1 favorite, the thought of the fight has excited many in the MMA world. They asked for this fight.

It's a contest between boxing's pay-per-view king and the highest-grossing UFC star in history.

Conor McGregor probably won't turn out to be a very good fight, but both athletes will leave the ring a lot richer than they entered the bout.
