This is not simply the fight of a lifetime. It’s more than the fight of the century. This is a clash of titans. And a crossover of fighting disciplines which will have the respective followers of both screaming for their champions.
Not every one is as excited by the match as the fighters fans are. Promotor Oscar de la Hoya for one has stated that the fight is ‘disrespectful’. ALthough his swipes at Dana White for booking the Superfight has more to do with the timing than the fight itself.
No matter. The two warriors are not listening to any nay-sayers. The incredible billion dollar purse may have a lot to do with that.
For boxing and MMA fans, the only question is: Where can I buy Mayweather vs McGregor tickets?
And the answer? Right here.
