The fight everyone has been talking about is upon us — tonight, Conor McGregor faces off against Floyd Mayweather in what some are saying to be the boxing match of the century. The weigh-ins concluded yesterday and things got a little heated between the two as everyone expected. In the tale of the tape you have the 40-year-old American standing at 5’8” with an impressive 49-0 boxing record. On the other side, there’s the ‘The Notorious’ 28-year-old Irishman standing at 5’9” with an MMA record of 21-3.
The fight between Mayweather and McGregor is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before so predicting who comes out on top will be tough. However, the majority of “experts” are calling the fight to go to Mayweather since McGregor has never boxed at the professional level. We’ve also seen Mayweather make so many other boxers miss punches because of his speed and defense so things shouldn’t be so different in this fight. McGregor’s only saving grace is that he packs power and is tough as nails. If he even lands a power punch or two, it could make up for a very interesting fight or even yet, lead to the biggest boxing upset of the century.
The fight takes place tonight Saturday, August 26 9 p.m. at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. You can watch on pay-per-view for $89.95 USD plus $10 USD more for high definition.
