Mayweather vs McGregor

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor will step to the scales on Friday on the eve of one of the biggest sporting spectacles in recent memory.

There is an enormous amount of hype surrounding this boxing match, which will be McGregor’s first and Mayweather’s 50th in a so far undefeated and wildly successful career.

To some, the event is farcical, to others, pure entertainment, and to still others an intriguing test to see if McGregor’s unwavering confidence and mixed martial arts mastery can successfully translate to boxing.

McGregor surely has a greater repertoire of fighting skills, but only one area of focus will be available to him when he steps into the ring against Mayweather on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The match will take place at 154 pounds, but Mayweather apparently doesn’t think McGregor is going to be able to get under that threshold.

In a video interview with FightHype.com, Mayweather questioned the 29-year-old Irishman’s fitness level.

“Conor McGregor is extremely heavy right now,” he said in a video published Tuesday. He added he believes McGregor is around 164 pounds.

McGregor didn’t take kindly to these comments and said it was a sign that Mayweather was looking for an excuse before Saturday’s contest.

“He needs to shut his mouth,” McGregor said, per USA Today’s Martin Rogers. “It is a fool of a thing. Let him keep praying, praying for weight, for fatigue, praying for me to take a backward step. All he is doing is praying, but he is praying to the new god of boxing.”

In his last UFC fight against Eddie Alvarez, McGregor weighed in at 154.4 pounds, under the 155-pound limit, per CBS Sports’ Brandon Wise. However, in two fights against Nate Diaz last year, McGregor weighed in at 168 pounds each time.

McGregor is a naturally bigger guy than Mayweather—he’s also an inch taller and has a 74-inch wingspan compared to Money’s 72, per BoxRec—but for a fighter who is so in tune with his body and has worked incredibly hard to be successful, there should be little doubt that he is going to miss the weight.

No one should be worried about Mayweather staying under the 154-pound limit, as he fought for much of his career in the 140s at welterweight and always carried his weight comfortably. Instead, the concern with Mayweather is age sapping him of the split-second and inch-perfect timing he uses to dodge punches.

McGregor is known for finishing off his UFC opponents with speed and power, and he seems intent on letting people know he’s capable of making it a supremely quick fight on Saturday.

However, the prevailing wisdom is that Mayweather’s mastery of defense and unblemished 49-0 track record in the sport will see him through to another win, whether it’s on the cards or via a knockout.

Mayweather may be 40 years old and hasn’t fought in nearly two years, but as the Los Angeles Times’ Dylan Hernandez noted, this fight could be a dangerous one for the boxing novice McGregor, and it’s potentially one that the Nevada Athletic Commission should not have approved:

“That’s not a history. A history would be a record of actual fights. But creating that history would almost certainly have imperiled the showdown with Mayweather. If McGregor had taken a couple of tuneup fights and looked as amateurish as he is expected to look Saturday night, he wouldn’t have been able to maintain the illusion of having a chance.

“The NAC made all of that a non-issue. Of the countless wagers that have been placed on the fight, none were as risky or as dangerous.”

There is of course enough belief in McGregor that for all Mayweather’s experience and skill, he’s only a -450 favorite against a man making his pro boxing debut, per OddsShark.com (as of Thursday).

But McGregor has enough power that he only needs a puncher’s chance. Of course, it stands to reason that a puncher’s chance is all he has.

There have been what feels like years of speculation about the fight, with much name-calling on both sides. But the two fighters have announced that it is indeed, on.

Yes, that’s right, a boxer with a 49-0 record facing a man who has never taken part in a professional boxing fight.

Anyway, here’s everything you need to know about the fight.
What date is the fight and at what time?

The fight is happening on Saturday 26 August. While the times haven’t been announced, it will certainly be a late night or very early start for viewers in the UK, so expect to be up well into Sunday 27 August, and possibly calling in sick on Monday 28.

Where is the fight taking place?

The bout will be housed in the T-Mobile arena on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada. The venue has held major fights in the past, including UFC 202, in which McGregor beat Nate Diaz on points.

How can I watch it on TV?

Details are still to be confirmed but the fight will be a pay-per-view event, organised by Showtime Sports.

The price has not been decided, though it is expected to be at or near the $99.95 charged for Mayweather’s 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao that drew a record 4.4 million pay-per-view buys.

“This is really an unprecedented event,” said Stephen Espinoza, who heads Showtime Sports. “Really we haven’t seen anything in modern history that resembles it, it’s impossible to predict how many sales this will do.”

What are their fighting records?
Mayweather retired in 2015 with an unblemished 49-0 professional boxing record.

He is widely regarded as one of the best defensive fighters ever, and prides himself on his ability to evade punishment with his skillful movement about the ring while making adjustments against opponents on the fly.

A win for Mayweather would move him ahead of former heavyweight great Rocky Marciano, who also retired with a perfect 49-0 career record.

McGregor, the UFC’s reigning lightweight champion and former featherweight champion, is known as much for his bravado as for his explosive knockout power inside an MMA octagon.

The 28-year-old Irishman became the first UFC fighter to hold two belts simultaneously when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez in New York last November for the lightweight championship.

The UFC stripped McGregor of his featherweight belt shortly after that fight when he announced he would be taking some time off after he and long-time partner Dee Devlin had their first baby in May.

Known for his devastating striking and highlight-reel knockouts, McGregor is also quick and irrational on his feet, but few would back him to beat one of the most complete boxers of all time.

What are the rules of the fight?

The fight will be held under boxing rules, presenting a huge challenge for mixed martial artists McGregor as he faces off against one of the greatest defensive boxers in history.

Adding to McGregor’s challenge, the fighters will be using 10-ounce boxing gloves instead of the smaller UFC gloves and he will not be allowed to use the leg kicks or takedowns that are used in mixed martial arts.

McGregor will weigh in at 154 pounds, UFC president Dana White told ESPN.
What are the odds?

Bookies immediately predicted a Mayweather win. William Hill put the veteran fighter at 1/11 favourite.

Oddsmaker Nick Bogdanovich said the odds would be even more lopsided if it wasn’t for the deluge of small bets expected to come in from UFC fans on their fighter.

“Realistically if we were just putting up a number and didn’t have to take bets on it, Floyd would be 1/100,” Bogdanovich said. “But this will be a very, very big betting fight for sure, one of the biggest ever.
