Mosley: Mayweather Sr. vs. McGregor : Highlights, Reaction for Showtime ‘All Access’ Episode

Mayweather vs. McGregor – Fight | SHOWTIME Watch NOW!

Conor McGregor has proved himself to be quite serious when it comes to training for his August 26 megafight with undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Money’s training regimen has been questionable, and it does not appear that he has much respect for McGregor’s skill in the ring.

If that is actually the case, it’s understandable because McGregor has never had a professional boxing match. He made his reputation as a mixed martial arts champion, and he takes an 0-0 boxing record into the ring at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas compared to Mayweather’s 49-0 mark.

Showtime’s All-Access series revealed more of both fighters’ training tendencies for the bout in its fourth episode.

McGregor was once again in the ring, while Mayweather was quite content to have more fun and then do just a bit of training in front of the cameras.

One of the constant themes of the All-Access series has been Mayweather’s insistence about talking about and showing off his money. He did that again here, boasting about the investments and businesses he will leave to his children.

He didn’t get into the specifics of those businesses, other than his strip club, which he is planning to upgrade. He put in time at his strip club planning to make it “classier” and “sexier,” and while he did that McGregor was in the gym and riding his bicycle in the desert.

There’s little doubt that McGregor is using his time to prepare his body for a fight and improve his skills in the ring.

Mayweather did go into the gym on media day, and he hit the heavy bag and the speed bag. He did not pound the heavy bag with ripping shots, but he was more interested in delivering those blows seriously than he had in earlier training sessions.

The speed bag was another story. He made that piece of equipment sing an aria, and he did it with one hand and without looking.

After that session was over, Money stayed in the gym, but not to work out. He was advising young protege Gervonta “Tank” Davis, whom Mayweather believes will become a superstar in the sport. He was at least as interested in training Davis as he was in preparing for his own fight.

Mayweather followed that by getting on his private jet to Los Angeles so he could tape a segment with late-night TV host James Corden. Floyd wants to have fun, and even if it’s mere days away from the big fight, that’s just what he is going to do.

Interviewer Jim Gray sat down with Mayweather and asked him what he thought of individuals who said he only took the fight because of the $300 million he will earn. “They’re f–king right,” Mayweather said, as he looked straight into the camera.

Following another training session, McGregor sat down with Gray and told him his financial goals were to help his family, his girlfriend and his three-month-old son, Conor Jr.

Mayweather’s financial intentions are to do the same for his family, but he comes across as much more financially motivated than McGregor. McGregor insists he will finish Mayweather inside of four rounds.

The two men will be in the ring in just over a week. McGregor is putting in the work, while Mayweather is depending on his talent.

Both are predicting decisive victories, and if it’s McGregor who comes out on top, it will be one of the biggest upsets in sports history.

The Mayweather-McGregor bout will be available on Showtime pay-per-view at a cost of $89.95 ($99.95 for high definition).

What date is the fight : Mayweather vs McGregor

 

What date is the fight and at what time?

The fight is happening on Saturday 26 August. While the times haven’t been announced, it will certainly be a late night or very early start for viewers in the UK, so expect to be up well into Sunday 27 August, and possibly calling in sick on Monday 28.
Where is the fight taking place?

The bout will be housed in the T-Mobile arena on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada. The venue has held major fights in the past, including UFC 202, in which McGregor beat Nate Diaz on points.

It’s either 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.

There have been what feels like years of speculation about the fight, with much name-calling on both sides. But the two fighters have announced that it is indeed, on.

Yes, that’s right, a boxer with a 49-0 record facing a man who has never taken part in a professional boxing fight.

Mayweather retired in 2015 with an unblemished 49-0 professional boxing record.

He is widely regarded as one of the best defensive fighters ever, and prides himself on his ability to evade punishment with his skillful movement about the ring while making adjustments against opponents on the fly.

A win for Mayweather would move him ahead of former heavyweight great Rocky Marciano, who also retired with a perfect 49-0 career record.

McGregor, the UFC’s reigning lightweight champion and former featherweight champion, is known as much for his bravado as for his explosive knockout power inside an MMA octagon.
