WHY THIS FIGHT IS A BIG DEAL
Two of the greats, from two different disciplines, will be battling it out. Boxing vs. MMA. Ireland's McGregor (21-3), 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, but he will be making his professional boxing debut against Mayweather, one of the greatest boxers in history. Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) figures to have a significant advantage over McGregor because the fight will be a straight boxing match, although McGregor was a youth boxing champion and boxing is considered his best skill. Although no major titles are on the line the fight offers both combatants an opportunity to make huge money. This will be one of the most hype fights of your lifetime!
