In possibly the most anticipated boxing match since Floyd Mayweather Jr. took on Manny Pacquiao in 2015, fight fans got what they asked for Wednesday when it was announced that Mayweather’s bout with UFC star Conor McGregor will indeed happen.
The fight will take place Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Both fighters have been the most discussed in their respective arts for the past decade.
McGregor, an exciting striker with knockout power, has taken the UFC by storm since he arrived on the scene, becoming the first UFC fighter ever to hold championship belts in two different divisions simultaneously.
Mayweather never has lost as a professional and will look to move his career record to 50-0 when he shares the ring with “The Notorious” on Aug 26.
Here is how the two stack up in the Tale of the Tape.
