McGregor and Mayweather recently wrapped-up their four-day, three-country World Press Conference Tour. The tour stopped in Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and London.
The boxing match is scheduled for August, 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. It will be a 12-round bout with 3-minute rounds. They will fight at 154 pounds with 10 ounce gloves.
Due to the type of match, Mayweather will enter the bout as a heavy favorite. Mayweather is a five-division world champion and has a 49-0 record. He will be exiting a 23-month retirement at the age of 40 to face McGregor, according to ESPN.
McGregor, a 28-year-old southpaw, is the first UFC fighter to simultaneously hold titles in two different divisions and one of the best MMA fighters in the world. He will be making his professional boxing debut against Mayweather, one of the greatest boxers in history.
In Mayweather’s last fight, he defeated Andre Berto in a unanimous decision to tie Rocky Marciano’s undefeated record of 49-0. Mayweather was credited with winning every single round on one of the judge’s scorecards.
McGregor last fought on Nov. 12, 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez three-minutes and four-seconds into the second round and took home the UFC lightweight title.
Showtime has released the first promo video for the upcoming fight. Several fan-made promo videos had been released prior, but the video (link below) marks the first official promotional material from Showtime.
