Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor in numbers

Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor in numbers

Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather will come out of retirement to battle UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor in a boxing match on August 26, according to Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole. The purse for the fight is not being disclosed, but it is rumored that both fighters will receive a considerable boost to their net worth.

Before the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor was official, UFC featherweight Cub Swanson was already crafting an opportunity to fight on the massive card. Mayweather, who retired in September 2015 after winning all 49 of his pro fights, will face a mixed martial arts fighter who has never been in a scheduled 12-round fight at the MGM Grand arena. On TV, the match is likely to exceed the record-setting 4.6 million PPV purchases for Mayweather-Pacquiao. The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Wednesday approved Mayweather Productions' request for a boxing card on august 26 in Las Vegas.

That line may move as the pay-per-view event gets closer and money starts coming in heavily on the bout.

Will McGregor give Mayweather his first defeat? But who cares? The buildup will be fantastic and it will be a fight we will remember forever, no matter what happens. "So I think that we gain from the mistakes that were made and the knowledge that they have now of what went wrong with that fight".

Never heard of NDA presidential candidate Kovind: Mamata
We had a long list, which was discussed in the Parliamentary Board. "But they informed us after taking a decision". He was, however, non-committal about his party's support for the NDA Presidential nominee.

"They could've not f*cked that thing up worse with how late they got these tickets out", White said. "One shot can change the whole outcome [of a fight so] we damn sure ain't taking Conor McGregor lightly [because] when he touches people, it has a tremendous impact". Ellerbe responded. "It's a very, very hot fight, and a fight that the fans want".

"Anything can happen so that's why I like to watch from the outside, it's unknown, you don't know what's going to happen", the American said.

McGregor, who has seen a meteoric rise in the UFC just in the span of a few years, has wanted the fight for long.

While terms are still unknown, it's been reported that Mayweather would get the larger purse, potentially as high as $100 million, according to White, likely the motivation in luring him out of retirement and risking his ideal 49-0 career record.
