Mayweather vs McGregor: why is it happening?


"I've accomplished everything", continued Mayweather.

Mayweather and McGregor will collide on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena for one of the most eagerly anticipated fights in history.

The fight is set to be the biggest bout to ever be staged in a boxing ring. He gets them doing things they don't normally do and that's what he needs to do against Floyd.

It also should be noted that it's going to be Mayweather Promotions handling the fight bookings and promotion for the card, as the UFC and any other MMA entity will have little to no say in anything with those matters.

Nate Diaz is yet to fight since the rematch in August, 2016 and has remained coy on his future plans to fight in the organisation as he clearly feels he is worth more than he has been offered since defeating Conor McGregor.

When it comes to big fight atmospheres Ricky Hatton knows more than most. However, I sold him short.

If that scenario unfolds, and Alvarez defeats Golovkin in a middleweight title fight that doesn't warrant a rematch, a Mayweather-Alvarez rematch might become a marketable option for Mayweather. "Correct, I have not ducked anyone since I was 15 years of age".

Boxing fans, most of you know this regarding Mayweather, but it's not a given fans of MMA do.

Lets be real. With no boxing experience, McGregor is probably going to have a bad night. It's no different. I think there is an interest level there.

Instead, Florian believes that McGregor's greatest chance to rattle Mayweather could be in the weeks leading up to the fight when he will undoubtedly go after the 40-year old boxer with a verbal assault like he's never faced before. "I be trying to tell y'all, I can get a black eye, bloody nose".

If you think there's a chance in the world Conor McGregor leaves the ring victorious, then you must be insane.
