McGregor may fight Manny Pacquiao

Representatives of both fighters appeared before the Nevada State Athletic Commission to request the waiver.

But no one was quite sure if the fight was legitimate or would be scripted.

The total revenue is set to smash the £500million barrier as Sky Sports won the battle with BT Sport to show the fight in the United Kingdom and the bout will be on pay-per-view in the US. But that's not why there's so much buzz surrounding next Saturday's fight in Las Vegas.

"Floyd and I go back at least a decade, and we have a strong business relationship and friendship", Solky said on Friday afternoon. "The greatest ping-pong player in the world isn't going to beat Roger Federer, and Conor McGregor isn't going to beat Floyd Mayweather".

McGregor's pull-back left-hand counter is widely considered to be one of the most destructive shots in MMA. I don't expect either one of them to get into any physical altercation.

I've heard all sorts of responses to this, ranging from people just wanting to watch the spectacle of it all, to people saying they simply want to see if McGregor stands a chance. That doesn't mean I think the mma star will win, though. "I do not see him absorbing the blows in the first two rounds". Could I see the judges ruling in his favor unfairly?

That makes him "and it seems to me, the university he represents, complicit", said Gaumer, who resides in Lynchburg. He explained what he meant by his compliment on ABC's This Week today.

"There are the boxing purists who aren't as enthusiastic about this fight, and I understand that", said Stephen Espinoza, who heads the sports division at Showtime.

Brady said, "He believed in himself".

If the fight goes the distance-which seems likely given Mayweather's struggles to knock out his opponents in recent years-the American's superior boxing ability should shine through to a decision win. There was plenty of speculation that McGregor could look towards the Ali Act as a way out of his contract with the mixed martial arts leader.

According to McGregor, it didn't matter who Mayweather trained with over the past two months to get ready for him because the options are very limited when it comes to a person capable of imitating the Irishman in the ring.

March 8, 2017 - While in London to promote a fight between his protege Gervonta Davis and Britain's Liam Walsh, Mayweather tells McGregor via ESPN: "Sign the paper".

But that may say more about America's appetite for reality TV and spectacle than it does about the two sports themselves.
