Conor Mc Gregor vs. Floyd Mayweather A Technical Breakdown

Talking to Black Sports Online, Mayweather added: "McGregor is a tough competitor. I was retired, but they wanted me back, and I'm back".

There's a fight of the century over the fight of the century. with two major sporting events vying for the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26th.

However, Mayweather has insisted that he took the fight because people around the world had demanded it.

Mayweather was asked about how much money he was making from the fight and although he did not disclose an exact figure, he did confirm that both sides were very happy with the deal.

The fight will take place in Las Vegas under normal boxing rules, despite McGregor having never boxed on the professional circuit, and will be contested at 154lbs.

The England bowlers later on bowled with fire to restrict the New Zealand batting line up to 223 runs. He said: "I certainly think [we have alighted on our best team]".

The super-fight is tipped to be the richest in history, exceeding the $600m generated by Mayweather's 2015 bout with Manny Pacquiao, but Hatton says it holds little appeal to him. I hope I don't upset any Irish fans or Conor, but I can't get excited about this fight one bit.

Boxing's last undisputed heavyweight champion believes it's "ridiculous" to put arguably the greatest boxer of the modern era against a fighter from a different sport.

So after months of going back and forth, it's all the more surprising that Mayweather's initial comments following the fight's official announcement this week were relatively mild, even respectful of his MMA-trained opponent. I think it could be a 12-round onslaught, to be honest with you.

"People telling me Mayweather will have his hands full trying to land on McGregor -STOP IT!"

"I can not say I'm a fan of it", Hatton told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek programme.
