The Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight is happening on Saturday 26 August.
the boxing match of the millennium or a cross-code money-spinning abomination, but what we can tell you with certainty, at long last, is that it’s happening.
Once-retired all-time great boxer Floyd Mayweather will take on UFC’s biggest star Conor McGregor in Las Vegas.
The world press tour of Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. peaked in Toronto with a fun and entertaining event, then came crashing down to Earth with a disaster in New York on Thursday.
Now, the tour will try to pick up the pieces and end on a high note in London, despite heightened tensions and hostility.
Coverage of the event is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. ET with Showtime, as well as the UFC, providing a free stream on YouTube, although both fighters are prone to showing up late. It will also be televised on Fox Sports 2 and can be streamed on the Fox Sports GO App.
In Toronto, McGregor stole the show with the crowd on his side. He had some pointed insults for Mayweather and even jabbed at Showtime executive Steven Espinoza, accusing the network of cutting off his microphone during the first stop of the tour in Los Angeles.
