When Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor head to Las Vegas for their much-anticipated boxing pay-per-view bout on August 26, the expectations for a circus atmosphere and straight cash for the participants will be large.
"One thing about fighting is that it's really unpredictable".
Rumors and reports of a fight have been floating for nearly a year, with both fighters openly acknowledging a potential bout. And I loved the way McGregor persuaded Mayweather for this to happen. When he hits you, you go. It wasn't until McGregor won the UFC lightweight belt last November, however, that the fantasy started to become a reality. - Well simple. Mayweather never usually gives any fighter a weight advantage, especially when out of action for such a long time.
Hours after Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather was announced, "UFC Tonight" tossed the script out the window and devoted much of the program to the upcoming boxing match. It's always going to be evolving. "Anything can happen inside the ring", said Holm.
Reports suggest that Mayweather could pocket around $100 million and McGregor, $75 million, irrespective of the outcome of the showdown.
McGregor is the most accomplished and charismatic star on UFC's roster, holding a career record of 21-3.
One person who feels "Notorious" can pull off the greatest upset in boxing history is his employer, UFC president Dana White.
"All it takes is a guy to nick you with a shot", he said.
"When two guys step into the ring - whether it's the octagon or whatever it is - anything is possible". 40-year-old Mayweather is 49 wins without loss and has fought and beat some of the best names in the business, including Canelo Alvarez, Oscar De La Hoya and Pacquiao in the biggest fight in boxing history to date.
"And Conor McGregor is an absolute knockout artist".
If enough time has passed to make people forget that they shelled out almost $100 for a total dud back then, another spectacularly high number is feasible.
Knowing this, there's a piece of me that wants to see McGregor knock Mayweather out.
