The UFC star fighter, McGregor against the terrible Mayweather! This mega boxing match is set for August 26! A pertinent question is most probably hovering over your head right now; why is a heavyweight boxer fighting a UFC star?
Each of these fighters may have their own reasons for getting into this bout. However, the huge amount of money that both will make is perhaps one of their greatest motivation! It is estimated that together, they will earn as much as $100 million from the fight. And it’s been hinted that the undefeated Floyd Mayweather could receive a greater share of the money thanks to his superior reputation.
Both Mayweather and McGregor are known for their unique showmanship, and they could simply not ignore this great opportunity to grab a multi-million pay-check. They have arguably achieved the highest honours in their respective disciplines. Now they look forward to make history!
In his professional boxing career, Mayweather has remained unbeaten. He has won forty-nine fights, out of which twenty-eight were by knockout! This is the second time that Mayweather has come out of retirement in his career. On the other hand, Conor McGregor wrote on his Facebook page that he was too engrossed in promotion and has not been concentrating on the art of fighting lately.
There will be no official belt at stake for this exhibition match. It will just be a historical bout to entertain the millions of fight fans around the world. Plus, the two fighters will see their bank account bulge.
While Floyd Mayweather has nothing to prove in the world of professional boxing, Conor McGregor will have a chance to show that he is one of the best fighters in combat sports!
