Las Vegas.

Conor McGregor v Floyd Mayweather.

The best of MMA against the best of boxing. At boxing.

It might seem a little unfair but Conor McGregor isn’t bothered. In fact, he’s so ambivalent towards the challenge of the undefeated American that he’s mixed up the Mayweathers.

For his tweet to confirm the fight, Conor McGregor used an image of Floyd senior – the height of disrespect to Jr who has won all 49 of his professional boxing fights to date.

Mayweather went with the more professional approach, releasing a video to confirm the appointment.


The event will solely be a boxing card with Mayweather Promotions running the show.

Conor McGregor is a boxer now.
