Floyd Mayweather, along with most boxing and MMA fans, believes he will win his August 26 boxing match against Conor McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion. I'm into this fight.

The BIG3 League agreed to move its championship from T-Mobile Arena to the MGM Grand to accommodate the megafight. Perhaps it's fair to wonder whether Mayweather, one of the best pound-for-pound boxers of all time, has regressed to the point where McGregor could pull off an upset despite it being The Notorious' first pro boxing match.

Even after his gutting 2016 defeat to nemesis Nate Diaz, McGregor partied hard with the travelling fans who still idolised him.

At a briefing on August 8, Trump said that any further threats from the North Koreans would be met with "fire and fury". North Korea says that new sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council were "unwarranted and unfair".

With just a few weeks away from the big fight, Mayweather spoke to Stephen A. Smith Tuesday evening (Aug. 8) about McGregor's racial comments and how they've shifted his inspirations in the match. I've been off a couple of years, and I'm in my 40s.

Mayweather very well may be capable of bringing the action to McGregor and even knocking him out - the UFC champion has no experience in a boxing ring and his instincts from the octagon might not transition perfectly to his new environment, potentially leaving him open to strikes.

Mayweather's last knockout victory was six years ago and he said: "I used to have a 90 percent knockout ratio.it's obvious I slipped somewhere".

Zab Judah and DeMarcus Corley have both lost unanimous decisions to Mayweather, and they recently told ESPN.com that McGregor doesn't stand a chance.

Before partying with his pals and posing with fans, the UFC ace said: 'I'm going to have a drink and celebrate. Something has taken a toll on my career ... "But I'm strong, smart, patient and come August 26, I'm the same person - strong, smart, patient - and the same way he called us monkeys, I'm going to see if he says that August 26".

"This can't be a defensive fight". The fight is probably going to be the most profitable of all time, likely to surpass the record of 4.6 million buys that Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao generated on May 2, 2015.
