Pacquiao: Patronizing Mayweather-McGregor fight up to fans

As aforementioned, the McGregor-Mayweather Jr. slugfest is slated on August 26 at the T-Mobile Center in Las Vegas.

Though Mayweather's supreme skill, seen in his one-sided victory over Manny Pacquiao in 2015, is viewed as the top reason that McGregor is considered more than a 25-1 underdog, the brash Irishman's verbal ability and striking power create intrigue to help sell a fight that could potentially challenge Mayweather-Pacquiao's 4.6 million pay-per-view buys.

"Floyd Mayweather's going to fight at 154 pounds against a monster".

After much speculation, boxing great Floyd Mayweather and UFC mixed-martial artist Conor McGregor have finally inked a deal to face off in the boxing ring in Vegas. I'm not against it. "But there's a lot more to boxing", he said.

Affectionately nicknamed "The Bipolar Rock and Roller" has been commentator on Showtime Championship boxing since 2012, and recently called both of Carl Frampton's WBA World featherweight title fights versus Leo Santa Cruz.

"He was great, retired a millionaire and was a great icon for the sport".

"When you have a Muay Thai fighter in Thailand, they make their career and then they jump into global boxing and many have been very successful". If the pay-per-view sales go as well as expected, Mayweather could reach $300 million and McGregor $175 million. "I was in retirement, but they wanted me back and I'm back". "He will go after Floyd Mayweather and he will try to knock him out".

Even though the 40 year-old has gone down an entirely different route in taking on a UFC fighter without a boxing match to his name, Sulaiman wouldn't rule out awarding the August 26 match-up "Diamond title" status.

"You guys know how I feel about Conor McGregor. Absolutely. But in a 12 round fight, Conor McGregor will at least hit him a couple of times".

But this is a boxing match, and Mayweather is a masterful boxer.

With no shortage of confidence, McGregor has chosen to make his ring debut against one of the most accomplished boxers of all time.

McGregor promised boxing journalists in a brief, fiery rant while attending a fight at Madison Square Garden in March that he would stop Mayweather if they ever squared off.

"Not at all, especially not for boxing", Sulaiman told ESPN.

To the average person, boxing and UFC might appear to be similar in their ingredients.
