Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor Finalized for August 26th

Post by CDF47 on Wed Jun 14, 2017 8:05 pm



What began as talk for a fight many perceived as impossible between a boxing legend and the biggest star in mixed martial arts is now a reality.

Former pound-for-pound king and five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. made the official announcement on social media Wednesday, confirming that he will exit a 23-month retirement at age 40 to face Conor McGregor, the UFC superstar, in a boxing match on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas.

Tbh im hyped to watch Mayweather slap him around lol

And in the slightest of chances conor wins......it only helps legitimize the striking of mma fighters to a crossover audience potentially.

Imo i think the entire main card should be boxers vs mma guys it could be a real fun event.

McGregor is getting 75 million for the bout (that's what I read) he will be set for life so he is smart in that regard but at the end of the day mayweather will pick him apart .

I am looking forward to it.  I know Mayweather is a huge favorite but if some how Conor was able to catch him, it would be crazy.  Plus, weeks ago it was announced Conor would get $75M for this fight which could be more now.  They are expecting somewhere in the range of Mayweather/Pac type numbers where Mayweather received $250M and sold 4.6M PPVs. It will probably be less but even half that would be insane money which is why this deal got done. UFC/Showtime, Conor and Mayweather will be making a ton of cash off this.

Luke Thomas is an Eddie Goldman wanna be and only started being interested in other combat sports three years ago in order to be a hipster and talk down to his followers on his then new podcast, but he brings up some interesting points here.

Those are some interesting points.

Not looking good for Conor. At that rate, Mayweather could put him out by the first or second round.

It's going to be a total mismatch and go down as the biggest-worst fight in history.

It is a fight sport so anything is possible but McGregor is way out matched. He might not land a shot.

Agree with the above posts the best he McGregor can hope is a lucky shot other wise it will be him swinging at thin air or arm punches
