Mayweather-McGregor Fight Announcement Raises Eyebrows
It’s finally happening. Boxing great Floyd Mayweather has agreed to fight MMA champion Conor McGregor in McGregor’s professional boxing debut. With 49 wins and no losses, the 40-year-old Mayweather is unsurprisingly the favorite, though UFC’s Dana White says McGregor, a tattooed 28-year-old from Ireland, is absolutely certain he’ll wipe the floor with the more experienced boxer. Commentators say that if Mayweather goes down in the August 26 bout — his first fight in two years — it could damage his legacy. Either way, both men are expecting a huge payout from the spectacle.
