Nearly 2 years in the making, UFC Lightweight champion and icon, Conor McGregor will finally come face to face with undefeated boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather in a professional boxing match. The fight is set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada USA on August 26th 2017 (US time). Dubbed “The Money Fight” by media, there is a lot of cash at stake in the whole promotion.  The allure of a handsome profit is the main -perhaps only- reason Mayweather is coming out of retirement to step in the ring again. But even at the age of 40, a good 11 years senior of the younger McGregor, Mayweather is the favorite to win given his pristine professional boxing career compared to McGregor’s lack thereof.
