Mayweather, Mcgregor Agree To August Super Fight

To make sure that boxing regulations are adhered to, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor will not be allowed to kick, elbow or use takedown moves during his mega boxing match with retired welterweight Floyd Mayweather.

"I'm not saying Conor McGregor's going to win". Las Vegas oddsmakers list Mayweather a -1200 favorite and McGregor a +700 underdog. With McGregor signed to the UFC, the fight would not be possible without White's consent.

The fight - at light-middleweight - will be one of the richest in boxing history with both men each due to bank in excess of £80m.

Think Mayweather-McGregor is a freak show?

The Ares Capital Corporation (ARCC) Receives Consensus Rating of "Buy" from Analysts
Seabridge Investment Advisors Llc decreased Amgen Inc (NASDAQ:AMGN) stake by 5,853 shares to 20,912 valued at $3.06M in 2016Q4. Out of 5 Wall Street analysts rating Activision Blizzard, 5 give it "Buy", 0 "Sell" rating , while 0 recommend "Hold".

It won't be cheap for viewers however: when Mayweather fought Manny Pacquiao in the "Fight of the Century" UK viewers had to pay £19.95 (€24.95 in Ireland) to watch.

In recent months, however, the two sides appeared to get closer to a deal, with UFC president Dana White even getting involved in the negotiations. It's going to be a boring fight.

Mayweather and McGregor - kingpins of their sports - will climb into a boxing ring to face each other at Las Vegas's T-Mobile Arena on August 26.

This could be the biggest spectacle in combat sports history, and McGregor's fellow MMA fighters shared their excitement on social media.

The campaign's emphasis on the ground game illustrates how important turnout will be for Ossoff in a GOP-leaning district. Republicans believe the run-off will favour them in an affluent seat they have held since 1979.

Ellerbe concluded: "Conor McGregor is a terrific guy, he's amusing as hell to me".

"As we've already seen this evening, Mayweather vs. McGregor has generated buzz that reaches far beyond that of the considerable boxing and MMA audience".

"One thing I've been impressed with when I've been watching Conor McGregor is his hand game. For him to go out and risk that 49-0 against a guy like Conor, props to both guys for making the fight".

If enough time has passed to make people forget that they shelled out almost $100 for a total dud back then, another spectacularly high number is feasible.
