Sean McDermott excited for the Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight

Posted June 17, 2017

His three career losses - including a March, 2016 fall to Nate Diaz - have all come by way of submission.

"If Conor McGregor wins he's the biggest athlete on Earth", hailed White when the fight was announced this week.

The 40-year-old, known as "Pretty Boy" is the overwhelming favourite - early Las Vegas odds have him at 1-10 with McGregor 7-1.

In MMA, the fight is held in a cage which is an Octagon which has a bigger square area than a boxing ring.

Facebook says using AI to fight terrorism on its platform
Facebook is also developing "text-based signals" from previously removed posts that praised or supported terrorist organizations. This is a departure from Facebook's usual policy of only reporting suspect content if users report it first.

Affectionately nicknamed "The Bipolar Rock and Roller" has been commentator on Showtime Championship boxing since 2012, and recently called both of Carl Frampton's WBA World featherweight title fights versus Leo Santa Cruz.

Numbers have yet to be confirmed, but Mayweather has previously stated he would take no less than $100 million guaranteed, and offered $15 million to McGregor. The iconic 1997 Evander Holyfield vs. Mike Tyson match pulled in a total of $100.2 million dollars, and the 2007 Oscar De La Hoya vs. Mayweather match netted $136 million dollars. In August, McGregor went five rounds in a welterweight rematch against Nate Diaz - the only UFC fighter he's lost to. "This will be a good fight because it's the first time that an MMA fighter and boxer will fight", said Rosauro.

It's not quite Jessie Owens racing against horse - a contest which Owens won, incidentally - or Muhammed Ali farcically fighting Japanese wrestler Antonio Inoki in a 1976 exhibition, but it's an odd pairing nonetheless. "We are going to break the record here in North America and I think we'll break the record in other parts of the world as far as pay-per-view and views go".

Mayweather retired undefeated in 49 pro fights and is widely recognised as one of the greatest boxers of all time. McGregor probably has less boxing experience than Mayweather's greenest sparring partner.

The United States is now among only three countries globally who have opted to not participate in the accord. David Ige signed two bills yesterday (June 6) that will implement portions of the agreement.

"All these UFC guys, they are very tough, tough guys. He doesn't have to watch for takedowns.' But to understand your way around the ring, to know when it's time to punch, to not punch, when to dictate pace or back off, those are things that you'd need years in boxing to really understand", he said. "But as far as strictly adhering to boxing rules?"

One point that is getting little attention so far is that Mayweather is coming out of retirement at risk to his undefeated 49-0 record, an unblemished mark which now ties former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano.

A win for Mayweather would move him ahead of former heavyweight great Rocky Marciano, who also retired with a ideal 49-0 career record.
