    Mayweather vs McGregor - Official

    Somehow this is actually a thing. Conor and Floyd have agreed to a deal, with the fight taking place August 26th in Las Vegas. This is going to be mental. Biggest fight in combat sports history.

    $100 million each if the BBC is to be believed. Don't know why anyone would bother to be honest, as good as each are in their individual fields I can only see one result if we are playing in Mayweather's domain.

    A victory for hype and marketing. To quote a recent popular music song, "it's all about the money, money, it's all about the money". As a sporting contest it is a nonsense.

    You gave the reason anyone is bothered in your first line.

    I'm in Vegas the week after this - damn it.

    I wouldn't completely rule McGregor out. Obviously the most likely result by a huge percentage is a dominant Mayweather decision, but Conor does pose some interesting threats to Floyd. He's bigger than Floyd, is incredibly quick, has strange movement that Floyd will not have seen before in a boxing ring, and the power in his left hand can put anyone down. If, and it's a big if, Conor lands that left hand he could knock Floyd out. It's unlikely, but certainly not impossible when you've got a guy as talented as Conor. Floyd's also 40 now, and it'll be almost 2 years since he last fought when this fight comes around, that could definitely play a factor.

    Complete joke really and all about hype and money - got to be embarrassing for the sport of boxing.

    No doubt the fight will be a damp squid but the pair of them will have the money rolling in

    Why's it embarrassing? Conor might not be a boxer, but he's a legitimate top-level combat sports athlete. This is a dream match-up, the greatest boxer of all-time vs the best p4p mixed martial artist in the world. The money will roll in and rightly so.

    Because Mayweather goes back to retirement and McGregor back to UFC, both with $100mil in their pockets, how does it benefit boxing as a sport, win win for them.

    It will get millions of viewers on the young fighters Mayweather Promotions and Showtime are looking to promote and allow them to begin building a future star for the sport. How is that not good? Surely the more views and the more interest in a sport the better? This is the biggest fight of all-time, we've never seen anything like this before, it's going to blow Mayweather-Pacquiao out of the water. I don't get how people aren't excited, especially fight fans.
