Brooklyn, N.Y. – “The Impossible deal is done.” – Dana White (UFC President)
Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, the TWO-BIGGEST NAMES and BIGGEST MONEY-MAKERS in COMBAT SPORTS TODAY have finally reached a deal that will transcend both the sport of boxing and mixed-martial arts to the highest grossing market in sports entertainment history. The long-awaited fight between Floyd Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) vs Conor McGregor (Boxing: 0-0-0) is set to take place on Saturday, August 26, live on SHOWTIME PPV, at the T-MOBILE ARENA, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Will you pay the pay-per-view price to watch this fight? The answer, emphatically is: YES!!! With the undercard, yet to be announced for this “once in a lifetime mega-fight”, the main event has been brewing for quite some time.
“We’ve been in negotiations for a while,” said Dana White (UFC President).
“I stopped doubting Conor McGregor a long time ago. Conor McGregor wanted this fight and the fans wanted this too.”
“The fight is taking place at 154lb with both men wearing 10oz gloves. He will go after Floyd Mayweather and he will try to knock him out.”
“Now You’s Can’t Leave.” – (Sonny from Bronx Tale)
McGregor (23-1, 18 KOs) has transcended the sport of MMA (mixed-martial arts) like no other fighter before him. He is without a doubt a man that loves to fight. For fans who love boxing you cannot deny the talent that McGregor brings inside the cage every time he fights. His lack of respect and disdain for his opponents carries over in his fights, often resulting in memorable victories that continue to take him to the highest of heights. If you would to match his phenomenal skills, persona, and true belief that he is the best fighter on the planet, along with Mayweather’s career, lifestyle, and legacy, you will find many similarities in both men.
“All Eyes on Me” – TUPAC
When you mention the name Floyd Mayweather, you cannot find a boxer in this generation or even before who has dominated the sport of boxing as he has. Mayweather is like no other boxer in history. For fight fans, there’s no need to take a trip down memory lane of the fighters that Mayweather has defeated. There’s really no need to talk about how easily he beat certain fighters, many of whom still have a sour taste in their mouth from the lead right-hands, head movement, combination punches that took away their hope and prayer in defeating him in the ring when they faced each other. Mayweather’s skill and business mind is what many fighters aspire to have. He’s a thinking man, in and outside of the ring. With some of his best victories taking place inside the ring, it’s the defining moments outside of the ring that separate Mayweather from being a good fighter to being hailed as “MR. TBE – THE BEST EVER.”
By cross-branding both sports (boxing and mix-martial arts) the increase of earning/marketing value has not only skyrocketed for both men, but also for fighters in both respective sports. Both disciplines of fighting are all about the competition and possessing the best skills to defeat your opponent. Mayweather, the former number one “pound-4-pound KING in boxing” and McGregor, the former UFC Featherweight and current UFC Lightweight champion, have set the mark for the future of combat fighting and sports entertainment. There has not been a fight of this magnitude in quite some time. Both men are “world-renowned stars” and have a “celebrity status” like no other athlete in the world. But for this fight, the accolades are sure to be much greater for the winner at the end of the fight.
