McGregor 100 per cent positive that he will beat Mayweather

The contest, nearly certain to be the biggest grossing event in boxing history, was confirmed on Wednesday and is set to take place at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on August 26.

Mayweather announced the fight on his Instagram account with a graphic saying "IT'S OFFICIAL!" showing pictures of both fighters and listing Las Vegas as the location while McGregor sent out an earlier tweet stating "THE FIGHT IS ON". I think that fight was so big and everybody was going so insane about it, that a lot of mistakes were made that cost them money, which is hilarious to say because that's the biggest money-making fight of all time.

That's because TMZ Sports is reporting that Mayweather expects to make between $200 million and $300 million for the McGregor fight, although the exact terms haven't been disclosed just yet.

Mayweather, 40, is undefeated in 49 boxing matches, winning 26 by knock-out. "I love what McGregor does, and did, to get this fight", she said. The pay-per-view blockbuster is now set for Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena, under boxing rules. Mayweather was more cautious, however, careful to sort out the details before proceeding to sign one of the most lucrative deals in the history of the sport.

"It's definitely going to be the biggest fight ever in combat sports history and probably going to be the biggest pay day ever", said UFC president Dana White. Now the Vegas odds for the fight stands at -1100 Mayweather, +700 McGregor.

PPVs for big boxing matches and UFC fights usually cost around $59.

I want to see this fight.

Like Ellerbe, we'll all have to wait to see if this fight is going to be as exciting as its buildup, but one thing is certain: whatever takes place inside the ring will be historic. When you go out and you put everything on line - I've said this about Floyd Mayweather for years.

Neither Mayweather nor McGregor have competed this year. Yet, he has managed to persuade Mayweather to agree to the fight.
