Boxing and mixed marital arts fans got some exciting news today. What many thought would be the impossible has become possible!
Mark your calendars, August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas it’s going down! Boxing legend Floyd Money Mayweather and MMA fighter Conor McGregor will face each other in the ring to box it out in a standard 12 round match with 10-ounce boxing gloves, with a 154 weight limit.
Mayweather is a 5 division champ with a 49-0 record while McGregor is a UFC lightweight champion. Mayweather will be ending his 23 month long retirement to step back into the ring against McGregor and is hoping to end his career 50-0.
Both fighters have confirmed the boxing match on social media and the fans have been going crazy ever since. This fight has been in discussion since 2015 and almost two years later the fans will get what they want.
Only a couple months away and we’re definitely excited and ready for this upcoming boxing match, who do you have your money on?
