5 key facts to consider for Conor McGregor vs”

"THE FIGHT IS ON", McGregor tweeted minutes before Mayweather's post.

"Showtime is going to put on shows leading up to the fight because they have Mayweather under contract".

After all, the biggest victor is the sport of boxing.

While Mayweather and McGregor have yet to meet face-to-face, the Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe and UFC President Dana White spoke to the press in Las Vegas.

McGregor, meanwhile, is the only fighter in UFC history to have held titles in two weight divisions simultaneously-he is the former featherweight champion. The 47-year-old added that both parties were happy with the terms for the "most talked about fight on the planet". "At the end of the day these two guys wanted this fight".

"I'm not saying Conor McGregor's going to win".

But this is a boxing match, and Mayweather is a masterful boxer. All it takes is one punch in boxing to change a fight.

Oddsmakers in this gambling city understand that, setting the initial line at a whopping 11-1 in Mayweather's favor.

But for once, White just might be 100-percent correct. Someone else will have to watch over the strip club for a few months while he focuses on the task at hand. It's money. In fact, they don't even pretend it's not. Floyd will go back to retirement and Conor will go back to the UFC.

Mayweather is rightly regarded as one of the all-time greats of boxing.

"(McGregor) is absolutely 100 per cent positive that he wins this fight, and I stopped doubting Conor McGregor a long time ago", he insisted. But the reason Conor McGregor's as big as he is is he'll fight anybody, anywhere, anytime.

So, while the fight itself will likely be nothing more than Mayweather schooling McGregor round the ring for 12 rounds so he can take a points victory and extend his undefeated streak to the magical 50-0, we should all sit back and enjoy the circus that is coming to town for the next two months. It would be the result the entire world expected, and fans would quickly move on to the next big fight.

So enjoy the ride, because it should be a wild one.
