The Sky Sports promo for McGregor vs Mayweather is the best yet
Will get you pumped

The perfect scene setter.

When it comes to Conor McGregor's pre-fight pep talk, we wonder if someone will tell him to "Load up on your punches, you've brought your friends, it's no fun to lose and to pretend that he's overboard and self assured."

Granted, this is something that definitely won't be said by anyone in his corner, but after hearing Nirvana's iconic Smells Like Teen Spirit set the scene for the most eagerly anticipated fight in the world, it's easy to jump to that conclusion.

With news that Sky Sports Boxing will be showing the fight for £19.95 in the UK (€24.95 in the Republic of Ireland), it's very likely that fight fans will be in their own personal nirvana when the bell rings on August 26.

After all the trash talk that has been said in recent weeks, we're finally entering the home stretch as one of the finest boxers in history gets set to take on a UFC icon.

Will the event live up to the hype? Well, in Kurt Cobain's famous words "here we are now, entertain us."
