Fighters on social media react to bombshell announcement of Mayweather vs. McGregor

Mayweather was recently in the United Kingdom for Gervonta Davis' impressive knockout of Liam Walsh, but refused to speak about his potential fight against the Irishman.

I challenge Iron Mike Tyson to a boxing match on the Mayweather vs McGregor fight card. The world will be watching when these two step into the boxing ring in Las Vegas in a fight that could change combat sports forever, for better or worse.

It is the unique nature of Mayweather - McGregor that make it an even better sell than any other boxing fight in history.

The two fighters announced their long-awaited fight on social media on Wednesday, with Mayweather posting a promotional video for the bout on Instagram along with the caption "IT'S OFFICIAL!" and McGregor writing on Twitter, "THE FIGHT IS ON". McGregor is being given a money line of +550 to win this contest.

When Mayweather, 40, defeated Filipino Manny Pacquiao on points in May 2015, the fight set a new American pay-per-view record of 4.6 million buys. It will take place on August 26 T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

FOX Sports UFC analyst Yves Edwards: "Conor McGregor is making his boxing debut in what could be the biggest fight in boxing's history. Conor would depart with a whole lot of money if that ever happened".


UFC boss Dana White said McGregor would go after Mayweather and try to "knock him out".

"According to him, he's going to fight", White said.

"If I had to tell you right here, right now, do I think Conor's coming back this year?"

The undercard of Mayweather-McGregor will be a purely boxing event, with no UFC involvement. He keeps himself well, don't get me wrong, but Floyd Mayweather won't hurt or won't damage Conor McGregor. "Whenever he hits people, they fall", said White.

"The reason McGregor is as big as he is, is because he will fight anybody, anywhere, anytime".

At this point, we have an early prediction from the bookmakers, which are saying that Floyd Mayweather is a favorite, but in an unusual match like this one, we have to add that there are no underdogs and favorites.
