Conor McGregor Mocks The Wrong Mayweather In Fight Announcement

Conor Mc Gregor and Floyd Mayweather

McGregor vs. Mayweather will take place on August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A two-division UFC champion, McGregor (21-3 in MMA), 28, will be making his professional boxing debut.

Conor McGregor has fired early shots at Floyd Mayweather ahead of their super-fight by taking a cheeky swipe at him on Twitter.

"Dana says he spoke with Conor Wednesday morning - he's VERY excited".

It will be a boxing match contested over 12 rounds at 154 pounds and the pair will both wear 10 ounce gloves.

Moments before Mayweather's announcement, McGregor tweeted out: "THE FIGHT IS ON".

Mayweather weighed 146 pounds for his last fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

"Absolutely not", White said yesterday during a media call for Mayweather Vs McGregor.

The current odds in Las Vegas stand with Mayweather being the favorite at -1,000, with McGregor paying back +700.

White wasn't willing to make a prediction on the outcome of the fight, but he stressed just how unique the McGregor/Mayweather clash is.

The two fighters have gone back and forth for almost a year regarding a potential showdown with both men previously stating they each wanted $US100 million ($132 million) for the fight. "We've been in negotiations now for a while, and to be honest with you, negotiations went smooth", White said. Whenever Conor hits people, they fall.

McGregor has not fought since his win over Alvarez but that has not diminished his popularity and he was named as the 24th highest-earning athlete in 2017 - alongside Gareth Bale - in the recent Forbes list. I don't think it damages the brand or Conor McGregor at all.

Mayweather is an unbeaten fighter with a 49-0 record, winning titles at featherweight, lightweight and welterweight.

It's a follow up to a jibe he threw at Mayweather during the week, when he referred to him as 'Floyd senior, his father.
