Butterbean Doesn't See An Athletic Commission Allowing The McGregor vs

The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Wednesday approved Mayweather Productions' request for a boxing card on August 26 in Las Vegas. Will it probably be a boring, one-sided fight? Yes!

The 40-year-old Mayweather will be looking to take his record as a pro boxer to 50-0 against a man who will be making his boxing debut.

And early estimates are that as many as 5.5m purchases could be made before Mayweather and McGregor fight, despite the seeming mismatch.

Las Vegas' Mayweather, who'll end almost a two-year layoff to box McGregor, is about a 9-1 favorite now that their 12-round, 154-pound boxing match has officially been announced.

Mayweather's 2015 victory over Manny Pacquiao broke all pay-per-view records, with 4.6 million people purchasing the $99.95 (£65) HBO / Showtime broadcast.

"I talked to him this morning, he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather on August 26, and he wants to defend his title this year too", White said on Wednesday. The two men will meet at the light-middleweight limit of 154 pounds, which bodes well for McGregor, who is now the UFC's 155-pound champion. "I just love the fight".

Rising star Catterall, who is expected to face Tyrone Nurse for the British title later this year, got the call from the Mayweather camp through a mutual contact and jumped at the chance to learn from the sport's best. No, but the kid, first of all, is a southpaw and people can argue one way or the other but Floyd, traditionally, if you want to say there's ever been a kink in the armor with that kid, it's with southpaws. "I am excited", said Holm, the former women's bantamweight champion.

It remains a huge question mark how McGregor, a trained mixed fighter, would fair in a boxing match, but it's clear that he's pursued ths fight for a while.

The fight has been spoke about ever since McGregor achieved his goal of winning both the featherweight and lightweight belts, but talk of money has held up any deal being announced. Mayweather earned $250 million for his fight against Pacquiao.

"This is a fight where all the Hollywood and National Basketball Association stars will come out, you know..."
