Are you still in disbelief that Floyd Mayweather is fighting Conor McGregor?

Don’t be. The fighting is actually happening on August 26. Everyone is on their toes. People are still hunting down a ticket to witness the battle. The fighting, which is billed as the Fight of the Millennium, is already set to become the most expensive boxing match.

Now it is official that the superbattle between Mayweather and McGregor is happening. You may take a look at the bout before it all starts confusing you. The battle will take place between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.

One reason why it won’t be like another boxing match is because of Conor McGregor. The 29-year-old has never boxed before. As a result, the battle gives Mayweather the upper hand. McGregor’s inexperience as a professional or as an amateur boxer puts almost all the bets on Mayweather.

McGregor is younger than Mayweather and earned a name for himself as an MMA fighter. He boasts an UFC record with 18 knockouts among his 21 wins inside the Octagon battleground.

While the two will go head to head on August 26 in Las Vegas, fans are still divided. Every fan glued to the T-Mobile Arena and live around the world will choose sides.

Now it may be your chance to pick a fighter for yourself. If you are rotting out for Conor McGregor to slay the mighty dragon, there are facts, records and information about him you should be well-versed with.

Conor McGregor is an Irishman. He came into the mixed martial arts spotlight after beating the UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo in December 2015. He put down Jose Aldo in the ultimate 13-second erasure.

Three months later, McGregor received a boost in weight division and fought Nate Diaz at 170 pounds. The match was an upset for him. So, he returned to fight Diaz again and beat him by a narrow decision last August. He stopped UFC lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez in two rounds.

Though McGregor doesn’t have any experience in profession boxing, he will fight Mayweather as younger (29 to 40) and taller (5’9” to 5’8”). He will also have the upper hand in reach (74” to 72”).
