Gennady Golovkin: Mayweather vs. McGregor is nothing but "a circus"

Posted June 21, 2017

Conor McGregor may earn north of $100 million for his upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather and that's not even counting the money he'll make from endorsements for the bout taking place on August 26 in Las Vegas. Only Brock Lesnar's fight against Frank Mir in 2009 is sandwiched between those two.

Golovkin insists his contest is the "true boxing fight" as opposed to the "circus show" of Mayweather-McGregor.

The second area worth watching is a tropical wave over the open Atlantic, about 1300 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands. Potential tropical cyclone two is east of the Winward Islands, while another area is near the Yucatan Peninsula.

Just because most of the bets have gone McGregor's way, it doesn't mean that most of the money has.

There are two key factors that determine the total gross revenue of a fight (how much money it makes in simple terms), and then a number of other parties who clip the tickets.

Personally, as both a professional sports bettor and fan, I honestly couldn't be happier that it's happening. We need to see what Mayweather is gonna be coming with.

"I think it's going to be one of the most insane nights ever". Depending on the punishment I take (in) this fight ... if I come out unmarked like I usually do, I'd be willing to fight on Floyd's undercard against Nate Diaz. The UFC 189 media world tour established the Irishman as the best at selling fights in the world, while simultaneously picking away at his opponents, poking fun to the point where more people have tuned in to McGregor press conferences and weigh-ins than have watched some UFC PPV cards. "I think it'll take a couple of rounds", Rody added. And how can a fighter who has zero experience in boxing go against the very best, and pretend he can win? The intrigue with this fight isn't centred around the possibility of Mayweather losing to a fighter who hasn't, as Catterall put it, "earned his shot at Floyd".

"If they got in close and Floyd was shucking and juking on the outside and he threw a jab to cover up a left high kick and that left high kick necks him? People all around the world demanded this fight so I had to give them what they wanted to see", Mayweather told BSOTV in an interview that aired Saturday.
