— Floyd Mayweather (@FloydMayweather) June 14, 2017
I wasn’t sure if this was going to happen, but it appears that money is the answer to any problems the fighters had so two of the highest profile fighters in their respective sports will be meeting in the boxing ring on August 26th. Floyd Mayweather, one of the greatest boxers of his generation, has the change (the very good chance) of technically moving his pro record to 50-0 with this fight. Connor McGregor, a damn good MMA fighter with a big mouth, has the chance (very, very slim chance) of shocking the boxing world. Most importanlty, both stand to make an insane amount of money. Some saying over $100 million each. And one would assume Mayweather will be getting the most, since that’s the only way he fights. Will it be another joke of a fight, or could McGregor land a surprise shot or two and make it interesting? No doubt many will tune in to see. I predict disappointment and Mayweather playing defense for as long as McGregor can stand. We’ll see.
