The fight of the century is all set to take place on 26th August 2017 with once-retired all-time great boxer Mayweather who would be taking on UFC’s biggest star McGregor in Las Vegas which is expected to be watched by thousands at the T-Mobile arena. The same would be watched by millions around the world.
Mayweather who was the highest paid star when he was fighting with his last infamous fight with Manny Pacquiao earning his few hundreds of crores announced retirement post the match but could not resist himself any longer to through his weight behind the ring.
While Pacquiao will return to fight against the World title holder Jeff Horn in the Battle of Brisbane rematch which will happen sometime this year after he lost to the boxer in July and complained of rigged results by the match referees, it is the Mayweather who enjoys a 49-0 record when it comes to professional boxing will be fighting with McGregor who has never contended in the professional arena which means the game will not be a hardcore boxing completely but would be more or less like a martial arts where different sets of skills are expected to be used to bring down the opponent. Hence if you expect a perfect boxing match, this may prove to be a dampener. The pay per view is expected to bring few millions as revenue and the bookies are quoting 2/9 with hardly a week to go in favour of Mayweather.
