THE FIGHT IS ON.
The fantasy fight is set to take place on 26th August 2017 at T-Mobile Arena in Floyd’s own watering hole Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be a standard boxing match and will be fought at 154 pounds weight limit. The fight will be 12 rounds of 3 minutes each and while wearing 10-ounce boxing gloves.
Showtime PPV has acquired the distribution rights and Mayweather promotions is set to be the lead promoter and will also decide the boxing undercard for the event.
After almost two years of teases, trash talk and speculation the fight which was never expected to happen gathered momentum in the past two months after the only obstacle was the distribution of the earnings. Both fighters are expected to have a payday north of a $100 million with Floyd Mayweather expected to earn double of that of McGregor.

There will be no championship belts on the line confirming that the ultimate prize from all the fuss would be truckloads of money.
Boxing & #UFC collide in the fight no one believed was possible. @FloydMayweather vs. @TheNotoriousMMA on 8/26. #MayweatherMcGregor
The impossible fight as it was termed by experts was in the eyes of the main parties involved “An Easy Deal”. “Everybody is thrilled with the way this deal went,” Dana White said. “It was very fair, very smooth. One of the easiest deals I’ve ever done, and it was a deal I thought would be impossible. … I said this would never get done.”
Mayweather promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe agreed. “I was one of the first to say it would never happen,” Ellerbe said. “I’ll eat my words all day, though. At the end of the day, the financial terms of the deal are confidential. All that matters is we got the impossible deal done and everybody is happy.”
Many experts have disregarded this fight as just an excuse to make money and fooling the audience with all the hype. McGregor is largely expected to chase shadows in the ring alongside Mayweather. But no one can argue the fact that the egos and the bragging rights involved makes it one of the most entertaining fights in the history of sports.
