The fight has divided opinion, even though it will likely be watched by anyone with even a passing interest in either boxing or mixed martial arts, but it will not be the only draw on the night.

As part of the deal to arrange the fight, the event’s undercard will be arranged by Mayweather Promotions and every fight on the undercard will adhere to the Queensbury rules.

At the time of writing, no undercard fights have been confirmed, though speculation is mounting as to who could feature. Which candidates are realistic, which are unlikely?

But after all the fan-driven drama regarding a potential feud between Layfield and Ranallo, Mauro is back with WWE shortly after landing the gig of a lifetime as lead announcer for Showtime’s 2017’s Fight of the Century between Conor McGregor, UFC’s first-ever dual champion, and 49-0 boxing great Floyd Mayweather.Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor Live

Mayweather’s protégé is hot property at the moment, especially after the impressive victory over Liam Walsh last month which saw him successfully defend his IBF super featherweight title.

The McGregor fight would be an ideal platform on which to promote the 22-year-old, but Mayweather’s company is yet to offer any concrete indication that he will be on the bill.

Wilson Reis, the Brazilian mixed martial artist, called Davis out shortly after Mayweather’s agreement with McGregor was confirmed in the hope of arranging another cross-sport bout.

The Swedish WBC super middleweight title holder has already played his part in one of the fights of the year after his tightly-contested draw with James DeGale in January.

As the biggest name in the Mayweather Promotions stable, it would certainly make sense for Jack’s name to be on the poster for the company’s biggest-ever promotion.

These are no ordinary press conferences. Fans can attend for free but had to apply for tickets online, with organisers claiming almost 30,000 were given away for the LA and New York events alone.

Tickets for Wednesday’s LA press conference are all gone and some are now being resold online for up to $US100 each.

The New York event is also sold out while organisers had to switch venues in Toronto from the 3000-capacity Sony Centre to the 16000-capacity Budweister Stage. The London event is tipped to fill the 12,500-seat SSE Wembley Arena.

The question is, now he has seemingly moved up to light heavyweight, who would he fight? Nathan Cleverly, the Welshman who currently holds a version of the WBA’s title in the 175lbs category.

Ranallo is set to join the NXT announce team starting this Friday, June 23, during the latest rounds of NXT tapings.

Ranallo figures to be a better fit for NXT’s sensibilities, which skew toward more hardcore fans, than that of the more mainstream SmackDown Live

The closest McGregor will get to his native country during the world tour is the London press conference on Friday with doors opening at 5pm.

The Los Angeles arena is where NBA side LA Lakers play their home matches. And it has played host to boxing since Oscar De La Hoya took on Shane Mosley back in 2000. When McGregor and Mayweather take to the stage, the venue promises ‘a star-studded event that will feature a live performance and special guests.

However, Mayweather has insisted that he took the fight because people around the world had demanded it.

“McGregor is a tough competitor. People all around the world demanded this fight so I had to give them what they wanted to see,” Mayweather is quoted as saying by sports website BlackSportsOnline.com.

“They asked for this fight. I was in retirement, but they wanted me back and I’m back.

In most circumstances I’d be all for a mega fight that attracts the interest of millions of casual fans. In a sport where its competitors risk so much, I also love to see fighters make as much money as possible. They deserve it for putting their bodies, and sometimes even lives, on the line for our entertainment,

However, this case is an exception where I can’t accept that.

Both Mayweather and McGregor make millions regardless who they fight. They don’t need the money they’ll make from this – even if it will likely be a career-high purse for even Mayweather.

As for attracting casual fans, there’s no doubt it will. But that becomes detrimental to the sport if, as in this case, the fight is a farce.

McGregor is not a boxer. He’s about to step in with the best boxer of this generation having not boxed since he was a teenage amateur.

boxing legends have been quick to share the opinion of Lewis, with Mancunian fighter Ricky Hatton agreeing that the event will be nothing more than entertainment, with no actual sporting edge.

‘I can’t say I’m a fan of it,’ Hatton told BBC Radio 5 live’s Sportsweek programme.

‘I’m a fan of UFC, a fan of McGregor – he’s got character, he’s exciting, entertaining, value for money.

‘I hope I don’t upset any Irish fans or Conor, but I can’t get excited about this fight one bit.

‘It’s going to be great entertainment – that’s the most complimentary I can be about it. It’s two different sports,’ he added.

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight Manny Pacquaio believes that Floyd Mayweather should get the victory easily in his upcoming fight against UFC champion Conor McGregor on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Dan Wetzel.

“McGregor has no chance in this fight,” Pacquiao said. “In fact, it could be very boring.”

Oscar De La Hoya is unhappy with the date chosen for Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s fight with Conor McGregor, as he says the Aug. 26 matchup clashes with Gennady Golovkin’s bout with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on Sept. 16 in Las Vegas. Mayweather vs Mcgregor fight online on Pay per view .

In an appearance on ESPN’s SportsCenter (via MMA Fighting), the promoter took a swipe at Dana White and the UFC for scheduling the clash just three weeks before the middleweight title fight.

“It was disrespectful,” said De La Hoya. “I would have thought that Dana White would have a little more respect with this boxing event taking place, because look, you just don’t do that. I mean, it’s like having the Super Bowl and then three weeks later the World Series takes place, the final game. It just doesn’t happen.”
