For fight fans, McGregor vs. Mayweather has the potential to be the fight of the century, but at times it has seemed that the fight would never happen.
According to Iole, terms are not yet known, but the fight is set to take place at the MGM Grand Garden or T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26. I don't think McGregor has the boxing prowess to do anything with Mayweather.
The Irishman is arguably the biggest selling pay per view star in combat sports now, but will be fighting in his first boxing bout against one of the greatest boxer's of all time. McGregor is a southpaw, which has given Mayweather trouble in the past, but the gloves will also be bigger than what he is accustomed to in the UFC, which could take away some of his power. "So I think he has to really keep his end strong for this fight". I don't think it damages the brand or Conor McGregor at all, I think it actually elevates Conor McGregor.
Mayweather 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.

Who will win? Totally depends on who you ask.
Mayweather is considered the heavy favorite going into the fight, though regardless of the outcome McGregor's paycheck promises to be by far the biggest of his career.
Lightweight champion Conor McGregor is clearly the biggest star in the UFC.
The fight - at light-middleweight - will be one of the richest in boxing history with both men each due to bank in excess of £80m. Who wouldn't want to see that?
"[McGregor] doesn't win in a boxing match", former undisputed heavyweight champion Tyson told Sirius XM 93. Brazilian Bethe Correia, whose bantamweight clash with American Holly Holm will be the main event of fight night here on Saturday, says it is going to be a tough fight for the Irishman.
