Unless someone gets hit with a lead pipe or slips on a wet floor, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are set to box this Saturday night in what promises to be one of the biggest single-night financial windfalls in sports.
After a memorable set of media events during a four-city tour in July, the two will meet outside the ring for the final time at a press conference in Las Vegas at 4 PM EST.
The two made news last week when the Nevada State Athletic Commission approved the use of 8 oz. gloves for the fight, a one-time exception for a rule in place that allows for 10 oz. gloves to be used in fights contested at 147 pounds or more.
As is well known, this will be McGregor's first foray into boxing while the heavily favored Mayweather will be looking for his 50th pro victory against 0 defeats.
