Mayweather's PPV joke has finally come true, and you don't have to fly to the USA to witness this unbelievable event.
Q. Want to step out of the golf course and step into the ring.
In a promotion for the upcoming Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight that airs August 26, Diddy and Wahlberg are betting "double or nothing" in the fight "Diddy vs. Wahlberg". Because when Conor McGregor does it, they say he's very confident.
If you've had the pleasure, and I use the term loosely because it has been auto crash TV of the first order, of watching any of the promotional tour then you could be forgiven for thinking this was a meeting of two giants of the Queensbury Rules. He will attempt to bring his unblemished record up to 50 wins.
"I saw him, and I said, 'What are you afraid of a faceoff today?'" McGregor said. He talks about visualization and the law of attraction and all this stuff that he believes in it and he vocalizes it, and he has the courage to say what he thinks.
"I believe he'll be unconscious within one round".
So far, the most expensive ticket sold on StubHub for Saturday's bout is $24,000, while the priciest ticket for Mayweather 's fight against Pacquiao went for $35,000.
"We have definitely seen massive general market interest in addition to the sports fan", said Stephen Espinoza, who heads sports for Showtime, which will televise the fight. People are expected to buy the fight in record numbers, with many sharing the cost of the telecast with friends and family they invite over. I just hope it doesn't turn into it and I hope it's not in any way fixed.
"He made a big error with the eight ounce gloves, he messed up, he won't last two rounds", McGregor added.
That would be making opponents look foolish as they try to land a clean punch - there are more swings and misses in one of his fights than a Major League Baseball game. I will knock this old man down. The rematch would be even bigger. "Rocky Marciano did it his way, and I would just like to try to do it the Mayweather way". That's sort of up to him.
"But when it comes to pure aggression and fighting rules, I can definitely fight, so I don't mind that".
Good stuff, Rory. We hope the fight's not fixed either. We have a major, powerful deal that you will see forever.
