The big Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing match goes down on Aug. 26, 2017, and for nearly a week we’ve been hearing UFC President Dana White and Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe talk up the event. But, one thing that’s been conspicuously absent over the past several days is commentary from the athletes themselves. Both Floyd and Conor have kept relatively quiet, preferring to let their surrogates sell the event on all the sports channels.
But, that’s going to change down the road, as Showtime Sports Executive Vice President Stephen Espinoza revealed on the latest episode of “The MMA Hour.””I think it would be a big miss as purely a fan to not see the two of them interacting repeatedly,” he told host Ariel Helwani. “Mayweather did it, I think we ended up at 10 cities in 11 days for the Canelo fight. I don’t think it’s going to be something like that, but I do think this is the kind of thing where people are going to want to touch it and feel it and see these two interact. So I do think late June, early July there’ll be multiple cities. Not a huge tour, but more than a couple. And I think it’ll be something that’ll be really entertaining to watch.”
The super-fight was announced last week, but tickets are already being flogged through sites and the arena’s website.The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will host possibly the biggest boxing match in the history of the sport.McGregor makes his boxing debut after spending the last four years becoming the undisputed pay-per-view and revenue king of the UFC.Mayweather, on the other hand, is a multiple weight world champion and is considered one of the greatest boxers ever with an unbeaten 49-0 record.
Tickets are on sale through the T-Mobile Arena site and sellers Viagogo.
Viagogo are asking up to £14,000 for the chance to see the historic event while the Arena has tickets on sale for a monstrous fee of $80,000.
Either way, it will cost you a pretty penny to be part of the action with Vegas set to be bursting with fight fans for the weekend.
McGregor and Mayweather announced the bout on their social medias to confirm one of the most unlikely matchups in combat sports.
But, it’s really what most people are looking forward to regarding this fight. While the fight has been panned widely as non-competitive in the ring, there’s a lot more excitement regarding what we’re going to witness in the build up to the fight. Conor has made a name for himself as one of the most bombastic presences ever during media events, from stealing the belts of his opponents to his attire, which often calls back to classic boxing attire of the past.
We can hardly wait for the guaranteed insanity. As for the fight itself? That could be rough. Mayweather vs Mcgregor Live
The pair have traded insults for the last six months, but the prospect of an actual fight seemed unlikely with McGregor having never boxed before.
But the Irishman’s determination to prove himself has transformed the fight into a reality with the UFC releasing him briefly to compete outside of the promotion.
Mayweather will come out of retirement to face McGregor and will look to extend his undefeated status to 50-0, thus setting a new record.
With Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor now a reality, FloCombat turns its attention to the details of the matchup. Everyone wants to know how the fight will go down, so we’re asking some of the best striking-focused minds in the game to share their input. Previously, we talked to Cody Garbrandt’s coach Robert Meese. Today, we pick the mind of Brandon “Six Gun” Gibson.
When thinking of the best striking coaches in MMA, Brandon Gibson immediately leaps to mind.
The brains behind some of the greatest standup fighters in the sport–Jon Jones, Cub Swanson, Carlos Condit, Lando Vannata, and countless others among them–Gibson has made a name for himself crafting the paws and shins of top athletes at the esteemed JacksonWink MMA gym in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Manning the fort for JacksonWink for nine years, Gibson has coached and cornered in 14 UFC title fights and countless other high-profile matchups.
Add in the fact he’s a lifelong boxing fan and obsessive student of the game, and it’s clear Gibson is positioned to expertly dissect the Mayweather vs. McGregor matchup from all angles.
And that’s exactly what he did. Following is the full transcript from our chat. FloCombat: Let’s kick it off with the obvious one: What was your reaction when this was announced? Is it fun to you or does it discredit boxing? Both?!
Gibson: I was excited to hear it. This is a fight that had been talked about for months, so it was cool to see it finally come together. The fight announcement received so much attention, [so] I know that it will be well promoted.
I’m happy that Conor will be making that big pay day, but I also wish we had seen Conor vs. [Tony] Ferguson or another top contender. Just like I wish Floyd would be fighting GGG [Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin], or having a rematch with Canelo [Alvarez].
FloCombat: Everybody says this isn’t an issue, but I want your take. Floyd is 40. We saw [former UFC middleweight champion] Anderson Silva’s reflexes decline before 40, and almost nobody can stay as quick and as sharp past 40 in this wild game. How will age play a factor in this fight–if at all?
Gibson: Of course, fighters whose styles rely on quick reflexes don’t typically age well (like Roy Jones Jr.), as opposed to the power-puncher styles (George Foreman). But I think that Floyd has plenty of reflexes left to deal with Conor’s style. Floyd is an amazing athlete, and he has taken very good care of his body.
FloCombat: Here’s where I think you can really shine, coach. Everybody says Mayweather will annihilate Conor. Some think Conor will land that one powerful shot. When you look at this fight from a pure boxing standpoint, what do you see? How do they stack up?
Gibson: Conor is a natural counter puncher. In MMA, he has excelled finding that precision power shot against overly aggressive opponents like [Jose] Aldo, [Diego] Brandao, and [Dustin] Poirier. Floyd has always done very well against counter punchers.
McGregor has no obligations to Reebok and is a free agent when it comes to apparel sponsorship, his manager Audie Attar told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour.
“There’s a lot of open categories that we’ve been negotiating with brands, including Reebok,” Attar said. “We’ll see how that all plays out.”
Estimates have put McGregor earning somewhere in the vicinity of $100 million for the Aug. 26 bout against Mayweather at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The ability to add more sponsors outside of his deal with Reebok as a UFC fighter will only add to that number. Attar would not say how much McGregor is making for the fight, because both sides have signed a confidentiality agreement.
McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion, and all UFC fighters have had to wear Reebok in the Octagon and during fight week since the UFC signed an apparel deal with the company in 2015. No other sponsors are allowed on a fighters’ shorts in the cage. McGregor also had an individual contract with Reebok as a UFC athlete, but that apparently will not extend to boxing, Attar said.
“He’s currently a free agent with regard to athletic apparel,” Attar said. “We’re still in discussions with Reebok and other brands.”
The boxing match is being promoted by Mayweather Promotions and distributed on pay-per-view by Showtime Boxing. The UFC is not an official promoter or distributor.Helwani asked Attar if McGregor could even wear a competing brand like Nike for the Mayweather fight, and the manager said that was a possibility.
“It’s definitely a great opportunity for Conor and any brand we decide to align with,” Attar said. Mayweather vs Mcgregor Live
