EPIC FIGHT: Mayweather vs McGregor. It’s ON.

Updated: June 16, 2017

It’s official. Floyd “Moneymaker” Mayweather will be fighting MMA Champion, Conor McGregor on August 26th in Las Vegas. Yup. A boxer is going to fight an MMA fighter in a boxing ring with boxing rules. This is really crazy for a lot of reasons. Here’s the situation.

Everybody knows Mayweather. He is a super athlete and a huge celebrity. Mayweather is coming out of a 2 year retirement for this fight. He is 40 years old and has a 49-0 record. It’s pretty crazy to fight again after taking 2 years off and it’s also crazy to take a chance at ruining your 49-0 record. But if he does win it will be a huge return to boxing and then he can retire AGAIN with a 50-0 record and a HUGE paycheck.

Conor McGregor is 28 years old and they say he is the best MMA fighter in the world. He is known for his aggressive offense and is super accurate with his punches. McGregor is a natural LEFTY and that will be a big threat to Mayweather. But still this is really crazy for him to go against the best athlete from a totally different sport!

How can an MMA fighter go against a boxer? These sports have totally different rules and different skills. McGregor is really going to have to change his style. Mayweather is the heavy favorite but McGregor is really young and has his left jab. Oscar de la Hoya said that Mayweather isn’t the best at blocking left jabs so maybe that’s one advantage he will have.

I hope the fight goes at least 7 or 8 rounds and that this isn’t all just a joke to make money. People want to see a real fight. To be fair I think that Mayweather should have to get into the octagon (that’s where MMA fighters fight) with Mcgregor and then Mayweather will have to adjust to the different sport. That would be cool and then you can see who really is the better athlete. I guess that’s crazy too.

I wish both fighters luck. Even if you don’t like boxing I think this is a cool thing to watch for any sportsfan.
