Moment of truth as Mayweather-McGregor looms

Moment of truth as Mayweather-McGregor looms”

Pakistan's very own boxing champion Muhammad Waseem believes the fight between Floyd Mayweather and the UFC champion Connor McGregor is going to be a one-sided affair.

One punter placed a $1.2 million cash bet on Mayweather, which will earn around $240 000.

Stephen Espinoza, the head of cable network Showtime Sports which is selling the fight in the United States, said surveys had shown that fans were not bothered by predictions of a one-sided bout.

Recently, Byrd refereed the first fight between Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev, a bout that Ward won by unanimous decision while he utilized a gameplan that involved plenty of grappling.

"Las Vegas is ours now".

"Their response nearly universally was 'We don't care if it's a mismatch. if there's a.01 (percent) chance that something incredible could happen, we need to watch it'".

This glorious mural just went up in Temple Bar, Dublin, immortalising the fight through the medium of street art.

Both Mayweather and McGregor agreed to Byrd as the referee of choice for their match.

BMW M5 2018 revealed ahead of Frankfurt
The new M5's engine is a development of the old model's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that now offers 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. These extend into the extremely lightweight carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof - a standard feature of the new M5.

McGregor, a 29-year-old former plumber who was living on unemployment benefits four years ago, is guaranteed $30 million, but could pocket as much as $100 million, ESPN said. That imbalance has made Mayweather a massive favorite, but since the fight date was announced in June, the odds have tightened.

"Weight doesn't win fights, fighting wins fights", Mayweather warned. Later in 2015, actor and Boston native Mark Wahlberg said he wanted to make a movie with McGregor.

With waves of green-shirted fans in a crowd of around 6 000 roaring their support for the Irish superstar, McGregor tipped the scales at 153 pounds, well inside the 154-pound limit.

McGregor is expected to be significantly heavier by the time the two fighters enter the ring, and he said of his undefeated opponent, who fights for the 50th time: "He's full of water: that's the worst shape I've ever seen him in". He's not a bull in a china shop by any stretch of the imagination, but if his only chance according to the experts is to bum rush Mayweather and catch him early, will he change his strategy and go for it all? "Mark my words - I'm not anxious about the scales".
