Mayweather vs McGregor Live Stream: Watch ‘Mayweather vs McGregor’ Online

On August 26, undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather will come out of retirement to fight UFC champion Conor McGregor in a professional boxing match. This highly-anticipated fight took several months to finalize but will result in hefty paydays for both fighters. This fight is projected to raise over $77 million in ticket sales and around $475 million in PPV costs. Although the official PPV price has not been announced yet, some have speculated that it will be approximately $100 since that is what the HBO and Showtime PPV costs were in the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.

Floyd Mayweather, the clear favorite in this contest, boasts a professional boxing record of 49 wins and no losses. Known for possibly being the best defensive boxer of all-time, Mayweather uses his insane reflexes and jabs to counter-attack his opponents which has helped him outpoint competitors throughout the course of his career. Mayweather looked fantastic in his training video and looks poised to keep his undefeated record. However, Mayweather is now 40 years old and one has to wonder if he has lost a step or two as he gets older. In addition to that concern, Mayweather might be extremely rusty considering the fact that he has not fought in about two years.

Conor McGregor finds himself in an unfamiliar position. The UFC Lightweight Champion returns to a boxing ring where he has not competed in over eight years. McGregor, who has 21 wins and only 3 losses in his MMA career, was once an All-Ireland champion during his youth but decided to pursue an MMA career instead when he was 19. Known for his knockout power and phenomenal trash talking, McGregor has quickly become the face of the UFC. McGregor’s last fight was against UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez where he knocked him out in the second round. If McGregor can stay aggressive for the entire fight, he can potentially clip Mayweather with a left hook and win by knockout but that is still highly unlikely.

Personally, this fight offends me as a sports fan. I cannot see this fight being anything but a farce. No offense to McGregor but he does not deserve to fight a boxing match against the best boxer in the world. This fight is a last-ditch effort to generate large ratings for boxing. The Mayweather-Pacquiao fight might have been the worst PPV fight of all-time and angered viewers all over the world. Similarly to the Pacquiao fight, I expect this fight to be a dud. Mayweather will use his elite quickness and defense to outpoint McGregor and keep his undefeated record. Some people are expecting Mayweather to win by knockout but he has not won by knockout since 2011 and McGregor has a tough chin. I expect Mayweather to win by unanimous decision and retire shortly thereafter.
