After months of speculation and rumors, the official announcement of Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Conor McGregor has been made: one of the biggest boxing events ever and, certainly, the biggest sporting event of 2017. Mayweather vs McGregor will be a 12-round boxing match with both fighters using 10-ounce boxing gloves instead of the smaller UFC/Mma gloves. The two superstar athletes will meet in a 154-pound bout on August 26th, 2017, at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States and it will be broadcasted on Showtime but Mayweather Promotion will build the card.
The undefeated ‘Money’ Mayweather (40 years old and eleven years older than the Ufc fighter) will enter the ring with a perfect boxing record of 49-0-0 (26 knockouts) and he was ranked as the No.1 boxing welterweight (147 lbs, 66.7 kg) and No.1 pound for pound in the world until his last fight against Andre Berto (September 12, 2015, Mayweather vs Berto) while ‘The Notorius’ McGregor is at his professional boxing debut but he has a mma record of 21-3-0 (90% finishing rate) and he is the No.1 mma lightweight (155 lbs, 70 kg) and No.7 P4P.
And now let’s see two interviews released by the two fighters about this megafight.
