    With this bout looking more likely every passing day and with rumours of them signing their official contract earlier this week - who do you think will win?

    Side note - do you think this a good fight for the sport? good fight for MCG? good fight for Mayweather?

    I think Mayweather without a doubt wins this match. Mcgregor is great at what he does, but he comes from a sport that both guys try to push the action. Mayweather's defense has baffled some of the best boxers in the world, he is so hard to hit. Everyone wants to point out how powerful Mcgregor is,BUT I hear nobody metioning that this is a BOXING match, That means BOXING GLOVES, and knowing Mayweather, more than likely 15 oz boxing gloves. Not the 4 oz gloves Mcgregor is used too. He is gonna have pillows on his fist, and if you do not think that will elimante most of his power, than your crazy.

    This match is good for Mcgregor,MMA, and Mayweather.....payday for both Mcgregor, and Mayweather, and MMA has everything to gain, and built in excuses...we fought in the ring, we followed boxing rules, he did not beat us at our sport.

    This match could be a death sentence for Boxing...if Mcgregor wins, and does something no other boxer could do in 49 attempts, and he's not even a student of the sweet science of boxing....boxing itself becomes a second rate sport...it becomes the WNBA!!

    Yeah I get what you're saying. They're going to use 10oz gloves. They are fighting at 154 pound weight, and Mayweather has always weighed under 152 so the slight weight advantage for MCG may help. I am a MCG supporter, he's awesome in MMA but the question looms if he can take that success to boxing when ONLY punches count.

    UFC and Dana must be loving the huge media attention but yeah - imagine if MCG beats Mayweather, the 1 in 49-1 that would absolutely ruin boxing IMO or maybe it will just hurt the myth of Mayweather? We will see.

    I am a fighting fan, so I cannot wait for this fight. I am surprised at the amount of ridicule this fight has received but still think it will smash all records for PPV buys, wage purses etc.

    I will tell you what has hurt the sport of boxing, and I think will hurt MMA(just my opinion).... The guaranteed purses.
    I think when there was a winning purse and a losing purse, there was more effort. Now just stepping through the ropes, you know you are walking out with 5 million, regaurdless if you retire on your chair, get knocked out, win, or get DQ... I think this really hurts the sport.

    Mayweather always scares me because of how much he likes to gamble, and God knows Boxing has had it's share of shady "events"....100 to 1, odds are probally more if you call the round that MCG stops him..... That is the only way I can see Mayweather losing, if he throws the fight.... even seems like they are trying to drive the odds up too. With the guy sparing with MCG talking about how bad Mayweather is gonna win.....You do not normally hear the guy who is paid to spar talking before the fight.

    I don't know if MCG does gamble, is that allowed?

    MCG will be making at least 75 million from this fight. Mayweather will probably make 100+. If PPV buys break records, they could make a lot more then that.

    This is my estimates
    $100 * 5 million = $500,000,000 USA ppv buys
    €25 * 5 million = €125 million on Europe ppv buys (€125 = $140)
    20,000 seats at avg $1000 per ticket = $20 million on tickets in arena
    Food Merchandise Drinks on the night = $15 million
    Sponsorship for the night 10 million

    500 + 140 + 20 + 15 + 10 = 585 million

    I reckon both fighters should easily walk out with 100 million

    Agreed Kevin. A lot of people saying it ridicules the sports, but at the end of the day I think people will flock to watch this.

    Deffo be a lot of interest its a one of a kind night where Boxing federation goes up against Mixed martial arts
    Sure its a bit of a gimmick but heck twill be an entertaing night. Hopefully as an Irishman mcgregor puts up a good fight
    Still not a patch on any wrestlemania though in my eyes :)

    Are there other fights? Are they having some MMA bouts, some boxing bouts... like a whole mixed card, or is the rest of the card filled with just boxing or MMA???

    Well for MMA you would need a cage/octagon style set up, so no. I have read it will be a fully fledged boxing event. But they say that even the undercard will have big names.

    I would put money on Michael Conlan boxing on the card too. Very good friends with MCG.

    Not really; there are plenty of MMA promotions that use a standard ring, with Pride possibly being the most famous of them.

    I mean they could make it an epic night, a mma fight, a boxing match, kickboxing match, put an amatuer wrestling bout on there.... just showcase all kinds of fighting. Now that would be a really cool card.

    I am just wondering what Dana and UFC gets out of this.. Surprised there isn't some sort of UFC fights on.

    What did we think of the world press tour? I scored it 3-1 to MCG personally. His charisma and wit is off the chart. Mayweather came across like a little school child compared.
