Mayweather vs. McGregor: Tracking the early Vegas money

Floyd Mayweather fight has been the most anticipated fight since the Mayweather-Pacquiao days - and will continue to be the most anticipated fight until August 26th. Their barbs will come fast and furious, with little if anything deemed below the belt.

"I don't see Floyd Mayweather as this indestructible, undefeatable guy", White claimed.

So let's test that.

Veteran boxing and MMA journalist Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports joined Fight Night with Alex Donno and Frank Zaffere on Thursday to break down the mega fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor. Round 2: The press tour through the start of fight week.

Just like boxing and MMA: 10 points to the victor of the round, 9 points to the loser - 8 if there's a barb worthy of being considered an emotional knockdown.

"I'm really looking forward to the build-up - the fight itself will be a whitewash from Floyd", said Catterall.

We'll post running highlights of the most memorable moments each fighter delivers. This is good for boxing and for MMA as well. Have thoughts on who's winning? "Understanding that part of the decision-making in boxing takes years".

"It's going to be years before they want to see another boxing event", she told the Los Angeles Times.

It wasn't all that long ago that Conor McGregor's name was frequently featured in headlines about WWE for all the wrong reasons.

"That's the easiest road to a 50th win in the history of the sport", says Hurst.

White on Oscar De La Hoya's negative comments about this fight: "Why do you go out and tell people to not buy the fight?"

For his return to the ring, Mayweather is expected to make a very hefty payday with predictions ranging north of $200 million for the 12-round fight with McGregor.

"Floyd doesn't know - not no one in this boxing game knows what's coming".

"I love the competition", he said. "When I step in there I'm gonna shock the whole. world". So many storylines are in play in this fight, from Mayweather exiting retirement and putting his historical record on the line to McGregor entering a brand new sport in the most hard way possible - by taking on the sport's pound-for-pound king. While UFC requires skill in a variety of forms - power, speed and endurance in boxing, kicking and wrestling elements - McGregor's fights have averaged only two minutes and 15 seconds per match in his career.

Age is an early theme for McGregor, who is 28. Connor will have a hard time beating Mayweather because he's too far ahead experience-wise.
