Celebrity News: What began as a challenge that sounded like a joke became a reality. Floyd Mayweather left the retreat to expose his undefeated MMA lightweight champion, Irishman Conor McGregor, who will make his boxing debut on the undercard to be held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas tonight from 7: 00.
In boxing have been absurd cases like the fights of the actor Mickey Rourke, who ended unbeaten his short professional career with 6 wins and two draws. The last fight was in 2014 in Russia in which it took the victory by TKO, but being an exhibition did not count for its personal registry or the program the Contender in which former boxers and actors participated in fights to obtain the greater prize.
But this fight looks like a creation of the mind of the director of Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino. All the absurdity seems to surround the ring of Las Vegas in a situation where the bell has not yet been given and the corners are beginning to count large amounts of dollars.
Mayweather, considered the best fighter of this century, is 40 years old and has not fought since the bloody bout in 2015 against Manny Pacquiao who was considered the “fiasco of the century.”
“Money” with 49 unbeaten fights had many girlfriends to return to the escrow, but the most defensive man in the industry was inclined to money and decided to give him reins, which Oscar De La Hoya considers “a circus that will harm boxing”, his Sticks to the star of mixed martial arts, Conor McGregor.
The preparation of the American did not distract at all with previous training for combats that made to appear in what way to Floyd, but this time the same Mayweather does not know that can be in the ring.
On the other side is Conor McGregor. With 29 calendars in hand, the European will see an unprecedented dream: to debut in a contest against the best boxer of the time and that will leave the not inconsiderable sum of 100 million dollars to get into a quadrilateral.
McGregor, who is estimated to have won a minimum $ 75 million purse, voiced for a long time that he will be the one to finish off the undefeated Mayweather and as the UFC’s consent, the president of the company Dana White, made reality what was only projected In the imagination of the Irish.
During the preparation have been slow and clumsy in the sparring sessions, but what really causes fear is how far the European’s patience will come and whether it will fall by disqualification.
In sports, everyone is wondering if McGregor will have the stamina to endure twelve rounds (in MMA fights last 5 rounds).
Beyond who wins the bout will see a historical fact in boxing. An MMA fighter who climbs a sold-out. There are cases where a boxer has decided to go into mixed martial arts, but not a boxing fighter.
For many it is a circus, others consider it a great fight, but the reality is that no one knows what could happen and if the fight ends in a tragedy for the world of boxing. There are even those who say it’s a fight just to boost the UFC’s audience.
