Conor McGregor: The Guaranteed Purses for the Fighters are Out


"I want Conor to win", Bailey said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau weighed in on the highly anticipated boxing match between UFC champion Conor McGregor and undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., picking Mayweather as the victor.

McGregor blasted Mayweather's weight accusations on stage and revealed he would be entering the ring close to 170lbs on Saturday night.

This form of execution is Mayweather's choice, captured in Mayweather's faked hand pistol shots at McGregor during Friday's animated weigh-in at T-Mobile Arena.

Mayweather has said he would take the fight to McGregor and while that seems out of character for him, I'm inclined to believe him. "I am a professional". "Mayweather's going to teach him what boxing's all about". I'll stop him in four. He's even bragged about eating out at Burger King-hardly the kind of grub one might expect a finely tuned athlete to take in. He is an undefeated fighter in six weight categories throughout his career. The odds, though, point to Mayweather emerging from the ring a flawless 50-0. He has to hope that being close and landing one of his heavy left hands will affect the40-year-old, five-division world champion who hasn't fought in nearly two years.

Davis can't win the title after failing to make weight.

But while McGregor, a long-odds underdog, has attracted most wagers, the majority of the money is on Mayweather. When Mayweather retired in September 2015, he did so with a slew of welterweight crowns in his collection.

The brash, charismatic Irishman, also known as "Mystic Mac" for accurately predicting the outcome of his fights, has gazed into his crystal ball and says he will knock out the 40-year-old American inside two rounds of the scheduled 12-round bout.




Neither should mind the lack of hardware at stake, though.

Most signs (if not all) point to Mayweather emerging victorious.

Promoters have sold the bout as "historical", a fight that will be talked about around the world for years to come and many intrigued fight fans have bought into the hype.

That would be the case against any professional boxer, let alone one of the best to ever lace them up.

"It's not going to be a great fight", said Trudeau with a shrug, as he trailed off.

Prediction: Mayweather wins by fourth-round knockout. McGregor, draped in the Irish flag, was cheered on by a throng of his countrymen.

Beyond the purse, it's Mayweather Promotions and McGregor Entertainment putting on this fight with Shotwime and the UFC, which means all sorts of other money normally reserved for the promoter will also be going (at least partially) to the fighters.
