Mayweather vs McGregor Fight Card is now just one days away. On Saturday the once-retired all-time great boxer Mayweather will take on UFC’s biggest star McGregor in Las Vegas with thousands watching at the T-Mobile arena and millions more watching around the world. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Mayweather vs McGregor Fight Card on Showtime PPV.
After all the speculation about whether we would have the fight, the last few months have seen much name-calling and animosity on both sides, as the rivalry intensifies ahead of the big day. Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will be stepping into the boxing ring on Saturday, August 26, to fight under the Queensberry rules in what is expected to break the record as the richest fight in combat sports. Back in 2015, Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao set the bar high with over 4 million pay-per-view buys in a fight that many fans were left unimpressed by the action in the ring from the two boxing superstars.
What date is the fight and at what time?
The fight is happening on Saturday 26 August. While the times haven’t been announced, it will certainly be a late night or very early start for viewers in the UK, so expect to be up well into Sunday 27 August, and possibly calling in sick on Monday 28. The main event begins at 4am BST, but the fight itself may start closer to 5am.
