Between the impromptu brawls, hilarious displays of bravado, and profanity-laden designer suits, boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Irish MMA star Conor McGregor have offered a crash course in hype ahead of their boxing showdown this Saturday, August 26. Needless to say, there's a lot riding on what some are calling the fight destined to save boxing from its certain death knells, even without factoring the ludicrous amount of money on the line.
Vegas odds surmise that McGregor will be crushed by the world champion Mayweather, who boasts a perfect record of 49-0 and a deceptive counterpunch that's earned him a god-like status in the ring. The brash Irishman, on the other hand, holds two simultaneous UFC belts and a desire to punch Mayweather back into retirement. When the bell sounds at 6pm in Las Vegas on Saturday night, you're going to want to watch the historic bout, no matter where you live.
