Lewis calls Floyd-McGregor August fight as 'ridiculous'

Lewis calls Floyd-McGregor August fight as 'ridiculous'

Clearly, McGregor will earn quite a bit off of endorsements for this fight as the showdown with Mayweather could end up as the biggest pay-per-view of all time. This is McGregor's first pro boxing bout and instincts are not easily abandoned.

It was even posted on the actual arena!

According to Metro, both the Irishman and Mayweather look set to make over $100million or £80m each on fight night.

But McGregor, a two-weight UFC champion, has never fought as a professional boxer and faces the sport's best practitioner for decades. And though Mayweather, who's coming out of retirement for the bout, is no novice when it comes to trash talk, McGregor is clearly up for the challenge.

It's a win-win, baby. Obviously it was more a marketing ploy than anything else, as the betting limits were very small.

Conor McGregor Sparring Partner Says Mayweather Will Win Easily
White doesn't foresee that happening and is confident McGregor will defend his title by the end of the year. No matter the outcome in Vegas this August, the Mayweather vs.

The UFC star will face undefeated boxer Mayweather on August 26 and believes he can leave a blot on the American's umblemished 49-0 record.

Mario Balotelli appears to have taken inspiration from Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor by indulging in a play fight with his brother.

The superfight that has been speculated over for the past two years has been appropriately donned, "The Money Fight". "Throughout my career I made 800 and it's possible I can make another 300", Mayweather is reported to have said since the announcement. Floyd will make him miss so badly and I think Conor is going to get so frustrated that he'll let his hands drop and come with his mixed martial artist's power. No disrespect to Conor- he's definitely determined and committed enough to have greatly improved since the 2016 sparring session, but it's hard to say if it will be enough to overcome the speed, finesse, and experience of Floyd Mayweather.

And, finally, all the undercard fights are being decided by Floyd's team and aren't open to just anyone who wants to turn up on the day. Who knows how much of that figure has to be distributed around to various parties, venue managers and other people, but know that there was a heap of it that went straight to Floyd's pocket.
