Mayweather vs McGregor Fight Predictions

McGregor said he had won every round of his promotional world press tour alongside Mayweather but the Ultimate Fight Championship (UFC) superstar was once again forced to defend himself against charge of racism.

The claims equialled against McGregor first appear during the opening two legs of the four-date journey through North America and Europe to make publicity for their August 26 heaveweight fight when he told Mayweather “dance for me, boy” – a phrase that has racial meaning.

McGregor vs Mayweather Superfight Updates

The verbal war press tour is officially finished. In a matter of four days tour, four cities, and three countries, unbeaten boxing legend Mayweather and UFC lightweight champion McGregor made their rounds to promote their forthcoming fight on Aug. 26 live on Showtime (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The two superstars made blockade throughout the week in Los Angeles , Toronto, New York, and London.

While the Mayweather vs. McGregor World Tour produced sportswear at times, it was chock-full of back-and-forth transfer between two of the best verbal warrior in combat sports today. The gigantic press tour featured on-stage disturbanced, racial
innuendos, flying One dollar bills, unlikely bets, flag grabs and money bags, and a battle between warrior and warrior.

The three-country media tour event in four successive days started Tuesday in Los Angeles, and it then continued in Toronto and New York before finished Friday in London. If you’re into two fighters firing profane salvos at each other at the top of
their lungs, then this world tour was exclusively for you.

No. 1 Press Tour – Los Angeles, Staples Center, July 11

The start at Staples Center was crazy and wild, but in recollection, it wasn’t that crazy and wild related to the rest of the
tour.

No. 2 Prss Tour– Toronto, Budweiser Stage, July 12

How was the second tour not the high point of the entire tour? Conor McGregor, following what was widely treated a victory for Floyd Mayweather the day before in L.A., was absolutely on fire. He opened up his turn by calling on the Budweiser Stage crowd to chant “F*ck the Mayweathers!” – which they happily compelled twice. That led right into one of the most unexpected moments, when Conor McGregor came to Showtime executive Stephen Espinoza and went off on him, calling him a “(curse) weasel” over controversy surrounding McGregor’s microphone being cut in L.A. From there, McGregor continued in a classic form.

No. 3 Press Tour – Brooklyn, Barclays Center, July 13

After joining its peak the day before in Toronto, New York is where everything seamed to apart. Yes, Conor McGregor’s clothing featuring a “polar bear coat” – and no shirt, mind you – was a sight to behold. But the two fighters showing up 90 minutes late really seemed to rock the fans at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The same old dirty word-laced back-and-forths got stale, too.

No. 4 Press Tour – London, SSE Arena Wembley, July 14

As the last stop of press tour, London probably was always cursed for nothing better than a ordinary show. And that’s what it got. The setup was different with a ring constructed in the center – as opposed to a stage at one end – of SSE Arena Wembley. So seeing Conor Mayweather and Floyd McGregor inside a boxing ring for the first time I guess was kind of cool.

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor Mega fight date Confirmed

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor date Confirmed: megafight in Las Vegas: Aug. 26.. Mayweather Promotions plans to request the date from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the much-anticipated boxing match between Mayweather, the former longtime pound-for-pound king and heavy favorite who plans to exit a 23-month retirement for the bout, and UFC superstar Conor McGregor, a source with knowledge of the plan told ESPN on Monday.

At the Nevada commission meeting scheduled for Wednesday in Las Vegas, Mayweather Promotions was scheduled to formally request Aug. 26 as a date to promote an unspecified boxing event, with Showtime — Mayweather’s broadcast home — as the television entity, but that agenda item has been removed and won’t be brought up at the meeting.

However, it is not because the fight won’t happen. More likely it is simply because the deal for the Showtime PPV bout has not been finalized yet.

The source said the date is still the one Mayweather and McGregor plan to have their welterweight fight on, likely at T-Mobile Arena. Once they have a deal, Mayweather Promotions can ask the commission to add the date request — typically a formality — to a future agenda.

UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor says he has agreed to a “record-breaking deal” to fight Floyd Mayweather. Dana White says they are now working to get Mayweather to sign off on the bout.

Vegas taking big c

Las Vegas sportsbooks already are taking thousands of dollars in bets on a Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight even though the blockbuster bout has not been finalized.

McGregor, the two-division UFC champion, and UFC officials came to an agreement on how their side will split the money generated by what is expected to be a massive pay-per-view event generating hundreds of millions of dollars. Talks are ongoing between WME-IMG, UFC’s ownership group, and Mayweather adviser Al Haymon as they work to finalize the agreement.

“There are negotiations ongoing, but none of us wants to turn this into the circus that the Mayweather-[Manny] Pacquiao negotiations were, so I think it’s best if we keep all the business discussions private until the deal is done,” Showtime Sports executive vice president and general manager Stephen Espinoza told ESPN on Monday night.

The date that had been eyed for Mayweather-McGregor was Sept. 16, but that was taken when Golden Boy Promotions and K2 Promotions finalized their deal for the heavily anticipated Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin middleweight world championship fight to take place on that date at T-Mobile Arena.

According to multiple sources, one of the reasons Golden Boy made a deal with MGM Resorts International, parent company of T-Mobile Arena and several casinos on the Las Vegas Strip, was because if it had taken the fight to another city (there were several suitors), there was a strong possibility that Mayweather-McGregor would have been on Sept. 16 at T-Mobile and competed head-to-head with Alvarez-Golovkin.

But in making the deal for the fight to be at T-Mobile, sources said, it was stipulated that MGM Resorts International would keep Mayweather-McGregor from infringing on the Alvarez-Golovkin promotional window by assuring that Mayweather-McGregor would not take place within three weeks of the fight. Aug. 26 is three weeks before Alvarez-Golovkin.

The 40-year-old Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) has not fought since he easily outpointed Andre Berto in September 2015 to retain his welterweight world title and then retired. But he has been vocal about his desire to exit retirement for only one fight — the big one against McGregor, who very much wants the fight for a payday that would dwarf anything he has made in the octagon.

McGregor (21-3), 28, recently applied for a boxing license in Nevada, though his application has not been completed yet. Mayweather has not yet applied for a Nevada boxing license, which must be renewed annually.

The Mayweather-McGregor fight card is expected to be a boxing-only card, and Mayweather has said he wants two of his company’s top fighters to appear on it, Badou Jack (21-1-2, 12 KOs), a former super middleweight world titleholder who vacated his belt in January to move up to light heavyweight, and junior lightweight world titlist Gervonta Davis (18-0, 17 KOs).
