McGregor and Mayweather epic encounter is a €600m done deal

24 Juin 2017

It's official. On 26th August, at the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will step into the ring to face each other in an actual boxing match. Both fighters are noted for their ability to sell their fights, and both have exchanged trash talk and more to promote their bouts. According to MMA Fighting, "The fight, which will be sanctioned by the Nevada Athletic Commission, will be a professional boxing match, meaning if Mayweather wins, he'll be the first boxer to have a ideal 50-0 record". The weight may be more challenging for McGregor.

Asked about the financial situation surrounding the fight, Dana White said all involved were very happy with the deal.

The fight had been pencilled in for September 16 but the mouthwatering middleweight showdown between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez stole the same venue for that date.

"Showtime is going to put on shows leading up to the fight because they have Mayweather under contract".

As expected, Mayweather vs. McGregor will be a boxing match, but White unveiled some of the specifics that were certainly part of the negotiations.

US says Russia not behaving in threatening way in Syria
Like Obama, Trump has focused on Islamic State, leaving for later the question of Assad's fate and the region's mangled alliances. The US has said it has "repositioned" its aircraft used in the Syrian conflict to "ensure the safety of our aircrew".

The boxing format heavily favours the undefeated Mayweather who many consider to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

It followed a successful defence of his WBC and WBA welterweight titles, a victory that equalled Rocky Marciano's career record of 49-0. "The impossible deal is now done". Conor McGregor is 27 and he is a southpaw.

McGregor, with a record of 21 wins and three losses, tweeted: "THE FIGHT IS ON". Whenever Conor hits people, they fall.

The fight will air live on pay-per-view. Bookmakers do not doubt his success and assume that a Floyd for the first time since 2011, will be able to knock out his opponent.
