In news that shocked almost everyone who loves boxing and UFC fighting, Floyd Mayweather is coming out of retirement to fight Conor McGregor.
This is a fight that people only dream about considering that McGregor is the best mixed martial arts star around right now and Mayweather is noted as one of the best boxers in all time.
McGregor has been the highest paid UFC athlete ever and the fight with Mayweather could score him $100 million in that one night alone. Not bad for a guy who tweeted back in 2014, “Get in. Get rich. Get out.” The match itself could see figures of over $500 million in gross revenue.
According to McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh, he believes the UFC champion could knock out Mayweather with just one punch.
Showtime is the lucky network to get their hands on the match which is set for August 26th in Las Vegas.
