Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight confirmed

19 June 2017, 02:36 | Sandy Nunez

The announcement of the much-touted fight between boxing great Floyd Mayweather and UFC's most recognisable face Conor McGregor was the trending topic here ahead of Saturday's UFC Fight Night 111.

One of Floyd Mayweather's former sparring partners has labelled his lucrative August showdown with Conor McGregor a "whitewash" - and says the build-up will be better than the fight.

"If the (Mayweather vs McGregor fight) happens, me against Joshua would be a great fight", Miocic said on The MMA Hour back in May.

According to Iole, terms are not yet known, but the fight is set to take place at the MGM Grand Garden or T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26.

McGregor is the top pay-per-view draw in UFC while Mayweather had been the money-spinner in some of boxing's biggest bouts, including matchups with Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao and USA star Oscar De La Hoya. "Clearly Floyd is the better boxer, but what no one is taking into account is just how good Conor is at the mental game".

Kevin Durant sends love to Rihanna after Warriors win title
Sheldon Glasgow, who has been living in Oakland for 10 years, said he wasn't angry the Warriors were moving. For three years in the regular season, 67-73-67, the Warriors are the best ever.


"It's definitely going to be the biggest fight ever in combat sports history and probably going to be the biggest pay day ever", said UFC president Dana White. He said that even if that happens, it wouldn't damage the UFC or McGregor's credibility.

FOX Sports UFC analyst Rashad Evans: "I think this fight is unbelievable". In March, Mayweather announced that he was coming out of retirement specifically to fight McGregor. That bout pulled in over $400 million, but Mayweather v McGregor is already estimated to eclipse that. When asked about the purse on the red carpet of the All Eyez on Me movie premiere, "Money" laughed it off and said, "I can't talk about that", before adding, "both parties are very happy".

Naturally, fighting on his home turf and in his own sport, Mayweather is a heavy favourite.

UFC kingpin McGregor will be making his professional boxing debut and will be looking to overthrow the legendary fighter at the junior middleweight 154-pound limit.

In other words, don't expect any other MMA fighters to be competing at the event, from the sounds of it.
