There is much that can be said about this fight, so we will start at the beginning. Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr. is widely considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all time. This 40 year old boxer has an impressive 49-0 record, is a 5 division world champion, and hails from Grand Rapids, Michigan. With the nickname “Money”, he has used his status as a boxer to become a fight promoter. A wise move if you consider he can’t fight forever. If you are an American ex-patriot or traveling abroad, you would need to connect to a server in the US with a VPN first.
The other boxer in this match is the MMA star, Conor McGregor. He is well known in the ring for being a ferocious fighter. He is 29, has a record of 21-3 in MMA, and hails from Dublin, Ireland. Though he announced that he was retiring, he found it hard to pass up the money in this fight. His nickname is “The Notorious” because of his fighting style. Of course, McGregor won’t be able to use any of his martial artistry when battling Mayweather. However, at 29 years old, he can retire with a quite a bit of money.
As we mentioned earlier, there is a lot of money behind this match up. Mayweather is set to make at least $100 million dollars, with the potential to make 4 times that. The money for McGregor will be at least $75 million, with the potential of exceeding $127 million. His minimum purse is 5 times the amount he has made from any UFC event.
