Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor Betting

Can McGregor Shock The World On August 26?

After years of verbal sparring via the media and social media, the fight of a lifetime will take place on Saturday, August 26 when unbeaten boxing legend Floyd Mayweather returns to the ring to take on UFC superstar Conor McGregor.

There have been crossover fights between boxers and mixed martial arts before, but there has never been one on this level with Mayweather the biggest name in his sport and McGregor a man that has taken MMA, and particularly the UFC, to new heights since exploding on the scene.

McGregor has a knack for living up to his pre-fight boasts and making history, but can he pull off one of the biggest sporting upsets of all time by doing something the likes of Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, Shane Mosley and Ricky Hatton could not do - beat 'Money' Mayweather?

Mayweather v McGregor Tale Of The Tape

So how do Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor square up when it comes to facts and figures?

Well, first off it has to be said that Mayweather has everything to lose and very little to gain – aside from a truckload of money – when he steps into the ring on August 26. ‘Money’ retired a couple of years ago with a flawless 49-0 record and the reputation of being the greatest in-ring technician of his generation thanks to wins over the likes of Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, Ricky Hatton, Shane Mosley and Miguel Cotto, but his reputation could be left in tatters if he loses to McGregor.

The Irishman, of course, is not some bum that has been picked off the street. McGregor is not the Rocky Balboa to Mayweather’s Apollo Creed. He is the first man in history to hold UFC titles in two different weight classes at the same time, and he shocked the world when he took just 13 seconds to dethrone featherweight champion Jose Aldo – who had not lost a fight in a decade.

However, McGregor has never stepped into the ring for a professional boxing bout and, unlike Mayweather, he has suffered a couple of defeats during his chosen professional career to have a 21-3 record at this time, although both losses came via submission meaning he has never been knocked out.

So can Mayweather do what no other man has done and knock out the Irishman, or will McGregor make the most of his reach advantage and land that lethal left-hand that has brought him so much success – and money – since he arrived in the UFC? We will find out on August 26.
