Brew: Mayweather-McGregor "super fight" will be a super-dud

  • Conor McGregor confirms fight with Floyd Mayweather in tweet with shade included

McGregor has zero professional boxing rounds under his belt and will bring a 0-0 record into the fight.

"The reason he's such a superstar is this guy will fight anyone, anywhere and at any time", UFC chief Dana White said about his fighter. "The fight is under the rules of boxing".

While Mayweather has dedicated his entire life to the specific disciplines of boxing, McGregor has only been dedicating his preparations to a boxing-specific approach for a matter of months.

That followed a successful defence of his WBC and WBA welterweight titles, a victory that equalled Rocky Marciano's career record of 49-0.

Details for a fight of this magnitude can range from a minor factor like who walks to the ring first to a major consideration like the revenue split.

The former world amateur champion is expected to fight on one of the sport's most high-profile bills as Mayweather makes his comeback against McGregor.

His boxing licence was granted by the California State Athletic Commission in December, allowing him to box in the U.S. state. "He is absolutely 100 percent positive that he wins this fight", White told ESPN. Tickets for the McGregor vs Mayweather fight at T-Mobile Arena are will sellout fast, so be sure to grab your tickets today.

Put Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor on a stage together to promote their fight and anything can happen. "People all around the world demanded this fight so I had to give them what they wanted to see", Mayweather told BSOTV.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. will come out of retirement to meet UFC star Conor McGregor in an August 26 boxing match that will feature two of the top-selling fighters in the world.

White said plans are in the works to have the fighters go on a promotional tour of major USA cities.

"It's a very good opportunity to show an MMA fighter is a well-rounded fighter, they can win in MMA fights, and also in boxing", Li said through a translator.

"Floyd Mayweather is 40 years old, he's always had problems with southpaws", added White.

In case you need reminding where that particular turn of phrase comes from, let us remind you of the time when McGregor stole the soul of a courageous but unknowing Jeremy Stephens, a featherweight who dared test his skills on the microphone against "The Notorious" a year ago.

"McGregor does not turn down opponents and he's now going to fight arguably the best boxer of all time".

Mayweather's resume includes boxing sessions against world-class pugilists Oscar De La Hoya, Diego Corrales, Miguel Cotto, Canelo Alvarez and Pacquiao.
