The Fight of the Century June 10, 2017 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The date is June 10, 2017 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Floyd Mayweather the American known as Money and Conor McGregor the Irishman called The Notorious have chosen the weapons: Boxing gloves.
Floyd Mayweather will get $100million while McGregor will have to settle for less and give the UFC a slice of his $100million.
Following Mayweather’s announced that he is officially coming out of retirement to battle McGregor, who says he wants this war more than any other.
Floyd Mayweather, 40, said Conor McGregor, 28, should “just sign the paper” as talk over a potential super fight bubbled again.
Mayweather has the opportunity of eclipsing the record of retiring on 49 wins and no defeats which he currently shares with the legendary Rocky Marciano.
Experts say when it comes purely to boxing, McGregor as an exponent of mixed martial arts is a virtual novice and may not have any chance at all against Floyd Mayweather also known as The Best Ever.
His best hope would appear to be that Mayweather takes victory for granted and goes easy on the training.
Even that seems unlikely, since the Money mantra has always been ‘hard work, dedication.’
Mayweather did tarry in the UK before travelling to Prague on the latest leg of a world tour which began soon after he hung up the gloves in September 2015.
He has been seen clubbing then eating in McDonald’s in the small hours but Team McGregor would be unwise to read too much into that.
Mayweather lives in Las Vegas, where he is a regular in the nightclubs. His favourite restaurant on The Strip is called Fatburger but he rarely walks about at more than a few pounds over his fighting weight of 147.
The 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena is offically reserved for his comeback on June 10th and he has plenty of time to get back into training camp and full fitness.
