Richard Perez compares Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz's chances against Floyd Mayweather

Richard Perez compares Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz's chances against Floyd Mayweather

LAS VEGAS, NV- On August 26, Floyd Mayweather (49-0 boxing) and Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA) will fight in arguably one of the biggest bouts in combat sports history-with eight ounce gloves.

McGregor manoeuvred his way into such a lucrative fight partly through his clever use of social media, but after insisting he found the videos "light-hearted", he became defensive and revealed how those doubting him have spurred him on.

The UFC stripped McGregor of his featherweight belt shortly after that fight when he announced he would be taking some time off after he and long-time partner Dee Devlin had their first baby in May.

McGregor added that his gruelling preparations for the fight would enable him to triumph, no matter how the fight develops.

"This is a bout that has already been set at a specified weight class", the physician chairperson Raymond Monsell wrote in a letter released on Tuesday. "I believe that everyone - no matter where they come from or how much money they make - should have access to the most elite fitness resources".

There's a new Conor McGregor song and it's VERY catchy
During a four-stop press tour last month, Mayweather went so far as to say he'd wear 4-ounce gloves in the fight. Mayweather said that it made him think about those who fought for civil rights and what they had to deal with.

According to the BBC , the duo is faced with criminal proceedings for using banned symbols from the outlawed fascist organisation. If a fine was meted out, the bail money they have already hand over would cover the costs.

In addition to brick and mortar gyms, Mayweather Boxing & Fitness will launch a mobile app and in-home Virtual Reality experience - both featuring Mayweather himself - to maximize the number of people who can access a first-class training experience.

BetVictor Head of Sportsbook Product, Eoin Ryan, said, "Mayweather was for a long time pound-for-pound the best boxer in the world, but he is not the force of old".

"I've seen some videos", McGregor said. "They took both fighters requests into consideration and I'm very happy with it".

The UFC president has given us an insight into how exactly he feels next weekend's Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor will go down. "He's a lot younger, so youth is on his side. So, if you look at everything on paper, it leans toward Conor McGregor".
