‘The Money Fight’ – Mayweather vs McGregor

Tags: boxing, Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather, UFC.
Posted on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 by "T".

Boxing fans are gearing up over what is considered as the match of the millennium. Touted as the "The Money Fight", the fight between these two champs certainly deserves the hype it is getting. Floyd Mayweather Jr., the undefeated five-division boxing champion, versus Conor McGregor, the current UFC Lightweight Champion, whose sudden shift to boxing has taken Mayweather out of retirement.

Although there are varying speculations over the fight, with some saying that it is a money-spinning abomination, it is without doubt a match that you should not miss to watch or bet on. Can Mayweather keep his no-loss record or does McGregor even have the chance? We all will be able to find that out on August 26, 2017.

There is no doubt that Mayweather is the current favorite to win the bout. However, those who are not a big fan of the boxing genius will surely be putting their money on McGregor. But since this will be his debut match and that he is not a full-fledged boxer yet, many are skeptic as to his chances of winning. Hopefully he does not try any MMA moves as there will be really huge sanctions and penalties for him. Being able to kick, grapple, and carry choke holds is something common to MMA fighting, but not in boxing. If those old instincts kick in during the fight, it will be McGregor's bank account that will surely take the hit.

The purses for the fight are truly huge. Mayweather is expected to earn at least $100 million, increasing up to four times if the event achieves all of its metrics. McGregor, on the other hand, is expected to earn $75 million. Both fighters have signed confidential agreements and are prohibited from publicly announcing any financial details on how much they will be getting from the fight.

Unlike other boxing matches wherein it is easy to tell on who has the advantage based on statistics and experience, the fact that this fight is on the uncommon side makes it harder to determine due to the lack of boxing figures from the MMA fighter. Even though this will be McGregor's debut match and is thus considered the underdog for this fight, we still have yet to see his fighting prowess in boxing.

Going through the records, Floyd Mayweather Jr. stands at 5 feet 8 inches, is an orthodox fighter with 49 wins and 0 losses under his belt, and has a reach of 72 inches. The contender, Conor McGregor, stands at 5 feet 9 inches, is a southpaw fighter, has 21 wins and 3 losses in MMA, and has a reach of 74 inches. Both fighter will be fighting in the light-middleweight class which is 154 lbs max.

The money printing fight. A hyped up nonevent. I always wonder who is paying big bucks ($100+ is mentioned) to watch something like this in pay tv. A boxer vs a non-boxer in boxing. But surely Mayweather and his team know, where the money tree grows.

True that Shokaku. But at the end of the day, all the sportsbars will rent it and a bunch of people will do house parties and split the cost between 8-20 guys. What I don't like about the card is that there is no undercard. The fight itself is intriguing mostly because of Floyd's possible ring rust and age. If they were both in their prime, it would be the biggest missmatch ever. But I think Conor has a small chance to shock the world and pull the upset. It only takes 6 PSI of force on a human skull to knock someone out. Mayweather's chin was tested many times in his career and it never failed him but still anything can happen in a boxing match anyone has a puncher's chance.

I wouldn't waste one cent on this so called match,you've got an over the hill boxer who was excellant in his day versus a big mouth MMA fighter trying to box.
Mc whatever maybe younger and more powerfull than Moneyman but i think the true boxer will win.
Although i wouldn't be surprised if he didn't so they could hype up a re-match.
 pochui7/18/2017 6:41:01 PM GMT
yeah kinda also feel that all of this "fight of the millennium" is just massively over-hyped bullsh1t. $100 million for a single fight... jeez wtf has happened to this world... everyday you can see better fights at a local nigthclub and all that the "fighters" earn are broken ribs.
 pajalnick7/18/2017 9:09:55 PM GMT
Conor McGregor of course in this match attracted mainly money .... Of course everyone understands that he is weaker and most likely will lose .... but if a miracle happens and he wins, it will change my idea of martial arts ..... maybe
 Odysseus1017/18/2017 9:31:13 PM GMT
I have literally never cared less about the outcome of a "pro fight", and there have been plenty of such that I wasn't even aware of until after the fact.

This fight is becoming more and more of a joke and it is like watching one big pantomime, You have a 49 fight unbeaten boxer fighting someone who has never boxed before!!
 Robbo19907/20/2017 12:21:28 AM GMT
lol if this is the 'fight of the millenium' then you obviously arnt a boxing fan. everyone knows this is just a stunt, but people will still splash out to see it ... I will watch it, not for the boxing but to see who wins/hoping mayweather gets beat up even if its a tap out!
 pajalnick7/20/2017 3:32:00 AM GMT
To warm the interest in the battle they insult each other ... and in general a lot invested in advertising this fight .... "fight" ..... this of course seems to me a very strong word for the upcoming action .... I hope that There will be no circus in the ring

Too much theater. If the match is rigged Mayweather win.
I say this because in UFC, BOX, K1 many matches are rigged. It's true
 DaCapo718/2/2017 1:20:19 PM GMT
A interesting boxing fight, but i´m not sure that one of them can be a real champion in the next years. Ok Wladimir Klitscko´s carrer ends with the last fight, but we will see which fighter can be a boxing star in the near future.

Hello my friends and fellow mobsters

Well this has been selled at the last cookie in the jar but so far the tickets aren`t doing so well has was expected Question Question
Floyd is a hell of a fighter but the combat against pacquiao was a bit doll so maybe the trill is not at a high point
Still if I can (for free ) I will watch it

Yeah I think the promotional tour didn't help. 4 dates was too much, it was repetitive and boring and all they said was non sense. Takes away from the beauty of the real mentality behind martial arts. The tickets, just like the pay per view are overpriced considering the undercard is very shitty (I don't even know who's on it yet?) Best options are to stream it or watch it for free in a bar for sure.

A surprising fact, but chances of UFC champion Conor McGregor to win August 26 boxing match with the repeated world champion in boxing Floyd Mayweather for the last month rose. Originally, bookmakers believed that the chance of Conor is absolutely insignificant, but over time the situation has changed. Immediately after the announcement of the fight, the coefficient for Mayweather's victory was 1.044, and the probability of his victory was estimated as 95.74%. Accordingly, the coefficient for Conor's victory was 10.5. After the world tour of the fighters, Konor's chances of winning became significantly higher: Mayweather's victory is now 1.21, and McGregor's win is 5.6.

I hope this Conor McGregor to make a big fight and win the match with Floyd Mayweather. I read somewhere about Conor McGregor insults for Floyd Mayweather when his daughter was present. Mayweather did not react violently but it is ugly what the Irish did. Anyway it will be an interesting match
