Showtime Boxing Reveals Broadcast Team for Mayweather vs. McGregor

Mayweather, McGregor agree to August super-fight

White predicts records will fall in super fight

One of his new jobs was as sparring partner with McGregor in 2016, when the Mayweather fight was in the early planning stages.

In what is surely more event than boxing match, Floyd Mayweather Jr will take on UFC kingpin Connor McGregor on Showtime PPV August 26.

While the fight is being contested at 154 pounds, at light middleweight, higher than Mayweather has fought recently, Mayweather won the light middleweight title in 2007, before then defending the belt in 2012, and then re-capturing the vacant title by defeating Canelo Alvarez in 2013 before then defending the belt against Marcos Maidana in 2014.

Not only has he never boxed, either as an amateur or pro, but he will be completely unaccustomed to the larger gloves that are used in the ring compared to the UFC octagon, unused to the shorter rounds but longer total fight time of a boxing match, and unable to use all the varied techniques he has acquired in MMA. I'm not against it. "This is not a referendum on the sport of boxing", he said. "Of course this is a WBC board decision but we have to celebrate that boxing is having world attention regardless", Sulaiman told ESPN. Now here's what you need to know before tuning in on August 26.

"When you have a Muay Thai fighter in Thailand, they make their career and then they jump into worldwide boxing and many have been very successful. If you go on his resume, he's beaten the best in the world". "I think they can get there".

"Bring him over to the boxing world and I'll show him what it's like, easy" Mayweather - who has reportedly grossed $700 million in his career - told reporters in January, when speculation first brewed about the matchup. We do medicals, we do drug testing, weigh-ins and specific boxing matters that helps the promoter with the organisation to conduct safely an event.

"On the other hand, when this is over and this fight ends up the way I expect it will, the next time somebody asks me, 'MMA or boxing, what's the better sport?' I'll say, 'We know who the bad asses are because Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor just got their asses kicked by two boxers'". It might be some kind of freakish disqualification when McGregor finds out Mayweather doesn't stick his chin out to be hit the way some UFC fighters do or really does try to kick Mayweather when he's down. "He will go after Mayweather and try to knock him out".

After months of intense negotiating, though, McGregor and Mayweather have both agreed to meet inside the boxing ring for a fight that is expected to reach millions of dollars in Pay-Per-View buys.
