Floyd Mayweather says accepted Connor McGregor fight due to fan demand

Floyd Mayweather says accepted Connor McGregor fight due to fan demand

But while the fight between the 49-0 boxing star and current UFC lightweight champion will be historic in nature, Sulaiman seems to believe Mayweather has the clear path to victory. "I was retired, but they wanted me back, and I'm back".

Mayweather has repeatedly said he is the "A side" of the fight and should earn significantly more as a result.

And with ticket prices and pay-per-view costs expected to be significantly higher, the bout could also top Mayweather vs Pacquiao, and make $1bn (£0.78bn) in revenue. They asked for this fight.

However, Mayweather has insisted that he took the fight because people around the world had demanded it.

The fight will take place in Las Vegas under normal boxing rules, despite McGregor having never boxed on the professional circuit, and will be contested at 154lbs. To me, I know who is going to win already, so there's no point in watching it.

AG Rosenstein sees no reason to fire Mueller
If Mueller knew he was going to be named special counsel, it is unlikely he divulged that information to Trump. Rosenstein says the attorney general would be the only one who could fire Mueller.

"Every battle sport starts with your hands but they are two totally different sports".

"When I look at some of the people Mayweather has beaten like Saul Alvarez - he's not going to be as big a puncher as Alvarez, and he couldn't lay a glove on him".

Sources connected to Mayweather vs. McGregor event tell us there are plans in motion to move BIG3 to the nearby MGM Grand Garden Arena [who own T-Mobile]. and they say it's just a matter of time before that becomes official.

The Englishman, who says he is a fan of both sportsmen, expects a "12-round onslaught" by Mayweather, adding that he "can't get excited about this fight for one minute".

"I can not say I'm a fan of it", Hatton told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek programme.
