It's official! Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor on August 26

15 Juin 2017

No doubt that a day won't go by where something new to build hype around this fight will be unveiled whether it is a promotional video, press conference or interview but at this moment we do have the official poster.

McGregor, UFC's brightest star, came to an agreement with the mixed martial arts promotion about his purse split in May.

Mayweather is a -1,100 favorite at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, with McGregor paying back 700.

Although there will be no titles on the line, the fight will provide an opportunity for both to cash in financially.

The fight will probably break every PPV record in existence. Yes, baseball will be in full swing, but there will still be plenty of games left in the regular season, which doesn't end until October 1.

"Floyd is the greatest of all time and Conor is the master of our sport", MMA promoter Dana White said.

White said the key to finalizing the fight was luring Mayweather out of retirement. We ask for it. "You can't be guaranteed anybody is ever going to fight again". "What's the matter with boxing?" "That was untapped for Mayweather-Pacquiao".

If McGregor pulls that off, it would rank among the greatest boxing upsets of all time. "When it came down to the actual business discussions, it took less than two weeks".

Wednesday afternoon, Kinzinger revealed his life has been threatened on several occasions. Martha McSally, R-Arizona, said the game will still go on as scheduled.

"In the end the joke will be on us", Schaap said.

He'll likely walk away with $100,000,000+ from Mayweather fight. The fans will part with their money and the fight will fizzle.

Fox Sports confirmed the details of the boxing match. It will generate hours of hot takes for those shows as well as ESPN's "SportsCenter".

Mayweather and McGregor ended months of speculation with a pair of tweets Wednesday evening.

"Negotiations went smooth", he said.

Few athletes in recent sports history have sold their sports better than the imperious Mayweather and the loquacious McGregor.

Nonetheless, the fight will be a standard, 12-round boxing match with 10-ounce gloves. "The fans wanted to see this thing, the media went insane for it and here we are".

"I have so much respect for Floyd Mayweather because when we were in the negotiations talking about it, I said Conor is right now in the USADA program and is being drug tested right now", White said.
