Since boxing is Mayweather's game, gamblers are betting high on the undefeated former champion in this August matchup. If you bring up Conor McGregor the right way in boxing, maybe over several years, maybe you can develop him into a world-class fighter.
Floyd Mayweather fight has been the most anticipated fight since the Mayweather-Pacquiao days - and will continue to be the most anticipated fight until August 26th. I love everything about his confidence, fighting ability, heart and the way he builds momentum leading up to the fight.
Mayweather, who retired in September 2015 after winning all 49 of his pro fights, will face the Irish UFC superstar at the T-Mobile arena on the Las Vegas Strip.
The Mayweather vs. Pacquiao super fight racked up a record number of 4.4 million PPV (pay-per-view) buys in the US. Additionally, there will be some "guest commentators" who will provide mixed martial arts analysis.

In the official announcement by Showtime Boxing, Mauro Ranallo has been named as the lead play-by-play announcer for the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather fight. How McGregor adapts to the boxing ring will be key to how long he lasts. Wondering if McGregor can restrain himself from throwing a spinning heel kick is worth a glance or two alone.
And lets face it, McGregor is stepping into Mayweather's world. "I'm just simply the best fighter, that's it". "Things happen in these kinds of fights", he said. Both fighters will be cashing in on a major payday and the buzz will continue up until the fight, but don't expect the results of the match to be almost as entertaining.
Fans have been clamoring for the battle, but are bettors and sportsbooks truly excited about this fight? "The sky's the limit on this". "There is nothing to compare it against".
Given that Mayweather and McGregor are both expert trash talkers and brazen self-promoters, this one will have a special feel to it, even if that aura dissipates the moment the opening bell sounds.
The fight, at light-middleweight, may well turn out to be, the richest in boxing history. Van Heerden stated that it was when he came back from a holiday adding that he connected punches "at will" towards McGregor. Espinoza was unmoved by the criticism, however. "But there's a lot more to boxing", he said. White said McGregor would be training for the fight in his homeland with Irish boxers.
