Boxing: Mayweather vs McGregor-World Tour

WHILE Floyd Mayweather has insisted his August 26 bout with UFC star Conor McGregor will indeed be his last fight, the Irishman promises there is much more to come from him.

“I’ve just turned 29. I’m fresh in the fight game. So I’m going nowhere for a long time,” McGregor said. “When he was 28, 29 he wasn’t even close to this. He was undercard. I’ve got my promotions on the poster. There’s no comparison when you’re talking about stuff like that.

“I’m quadrupling my net worth here, in one fight.”
