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?

This brisk motion which has been retarding the development of the system is forecast to continue over the next 24 - 36 hours. Once it reaches the Gulf, it is expected to develop into a tropical cyclone, according to the National Weather Service .

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.

However, Perez remains undisturbed by the reports and says he is "not contemplating' letting Ronaldo leave Real Madrid ". What people can not do is talk about him like he is a delinquent, that bothers me and is hurtful.

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.
