" "Watch this Epic Mayweather-McGregor Trailer "$180M Dance"

But he didn't, and now he's putting his entire career legacy on the line against a novice who has never fought as a boxer. They are a combined 86-1-1 with 67 knockouts. Had he lost to Manny Pacquiao or Andre Berto in one of his last two fights, he'd be most remembered for that.

Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor stands to be one of the most anticipated fights ever. It puts Mike Tyson-Peter McNeeley to shame on that front.

On paper, Mayweather is a massive favorite with a flawless 49-0 record and a resume that reads like a who's who of top boxers over the past two decades who have attempted to hand the defensive wonder his first loss and still managed to come up short. You will be so pumped for the fight that you'll forget that it probably will be a disappointment.

Mexico's Alvarez is 7-0 (4 KOs) since losing to Mayweather. The Westgate Las Vegas Super Book has McGregor as the underdog at +500 and Mayweather listed as a -700 favorite to win the bout. "I don't know if Floyd's dealt with someone who talks trash like Conor McGregor and gets you emotional like Conor McGregor".

Triple H has revealed that Mayweather is a "huge fan" of the promotion, and that he trained the boxer for his showdown with the Big Show. I actually respect him for that. It just doesn't happen. "We have a real fight". It's in the back of my mind, that fight. Rocky Marciano, the fighter whose record Mayweather will surpass when he beats McGregor, isn't regarded by any boxing historian as the greatest heavyweight champ in history, even though he retired undefeated....with the argument being that had Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali or Larry Holmes fought the same fighters Marciano did on the night he fought them, all four of them would've gone 49-0 too.

"I think people understand what is a true fight, a boxing fight, like mine with Canelo or a big show, maybe sometimes for people a amusing show, like a circus show".

When the freak show is mentioned, Golovkin often rolls his eyes and gives a little laugh before addressing it.

Nate Diaz is yet to fight since the rematch in August, 2016 and has remained coy on his future plans to fight in the organisation as he clearly feels he is worth more than he has been offered since defeating Conor McGregor. This is the middleweight fight the fans have been clambering for a long time... Fellow boxer Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who is set to fight on September 16 isn't too enthused about the future bout. "That's all that matters". "But to make people watch a 12 round snoozer is not good for boxing".

"I'm more confident now", Alvarez said. After he loses the decision, McGregor proclaims...."I went the distance with the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world in my pro debut". Canelo is asked if it was upsetting for him to hear fans believed he was ducking Golovkin.

"On Sept. 16, this fight will deliver and then some", De La Hoya said. Starting the night of February 25th 1964, when I saw Cassius Clay for the first time in my life on the 6:00 PM news, two-months shy of my 6th birthday, I've been obsessed with the sport of boxing and have adamantly followed it from every aspect.

"At the level of athlete that he's at, for Floyd to agree to that kind of stuff was unbelievable for us, but you know he's a huge fan and couldn't have been more engaged in what we do. I think a superman punch is well within the rules", he said in an interview on Fight Hype.

"I'm not concerned about it. This is the icing on the cake".
