Game on! Conor McGregor Vs Floyd Mayweather Fight Is Confirmed

Mayweather Jr. said Wednesday, June 14, 2017, he will come out of retirement to face UFC star Conor McGregor in a boxing match on August 26.

He keeps himself well, don't get me wrong, but Floyd Mayweather won't hurt or won't damage Conor McGregor.

McGregor, who has never boxed professionally, became the UFC's first dual-division champion in November 2016 and has previously challenged Mayweather to a fight under mixed martial arts rules.

Mayweather's 2015 fight against Manny Pacquiao cost between $90 and $100 to watch on pay-per-view and drew an estimated 4.4 million viewers.

The two fighters are expected to do a press tour shortly before going into final training for the fight.

Ireland's McGregor, 28, who has won 21 out of his 24 MMA fights, has helped to turn the UFC from a cult phenomenon into a global sport. I'm most looking forward to what they have to say in the lead-up to the fight.

Mayweather's chin has been one of his greatest assets during a pro career that began in October 1996. "I expect Floyd to win it 100 per cent". McGregor is a southpaw, which has given Mayweather trouble in the past, but the gloves will also be bigger than what he is accustomed to in the UFC, which could take away some of his power. Still, the fans want this match thanks to the promotional ability of McGregor, who has been calling Mayweather out for years.

"(Mayweather) finished the Pacquiao fight - Wednesday he was back in the damn gym", Ellerbe said. Las Vegas oddsmakers list Mayweather a -1200 favorite and McGregor a +700 underdog. White explained McGregor's appeal when he said: "The reason Conor McGregor is as big as he is is he'll fight anybody, anywhere, any time". Oscar De La Hoya has called it a farce and said it will harm boxing regardless of the result. Muscle memory, and natural instincts, could easily take over when McGregor fights, but his contract now forbids him from doing so.

Floyd "Money" Mayweather is undoubtedly one of the greatest boxers of all time.

Conor McGregor has set plenty of gate and pay-per-view records in MMA, and he might just achieve similar things in boxing.
