'No Point Watching' - Heavyweight Legend Lennox Lewis Slams Ridiculous Mayweather-McGregor Fight

Conor McGregor has stepped up his trash talk with Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor has other advantages, such as reach (74 inches to Mayweather's 72) and age (29 on fight day to Mayweather's 40), but his 49-0 opponent has been installed as a major favorite by Las Vegas oddsmakers.

It's a boxing match, and the 28-year-old McGregor is not a boxer - he's a UFC fighter. "Conor came in with his camera people, so at the same time, I told one of my friends to take out his phone and record it too". We have a great relationship with John Kavanagh and he graciously provided us with the opportunity of producing the artwork which is now the backdrop for Conor's preparations. "People all over the world wanted this fight".

As boxing and UFC stars scramble to fight on the richest fight in history, Broner is the latest to offer his services. Money fight? Okay. Show fight?

Golovkin has made 18 consecutive world middleweight title defences and was taken to points for the first time since 2008 by American Daniel Jacobs in March. According to an ESPN report, when Mayweather fought Manny Pacquiao in May 2015, Mayweather received $1 million from Hublot and FanDuel for space on his shorts, and another $1 million from Burger King to have the King as part of his ring walk. Mayweather's style doesn't make for attractive fights, it's hard to land punches.

The buildup to the highly anticipated bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor is sure to be entertaining.

His boxing licence was granted by the California State Athletic Commission in December, allowing him to box in the USA state.

Surely they knew that August 26 was the date that we crown a new BIG3 champion - after all, everyone knew that!

If you're ballsy enough to think the fight could end in a Draw or that Conor could win by Majority Decision, then a simple $100 bet would pay you $5000 - that's right, five large ones on these two +5000 prop bets. "If Mayweather turns this thing into a track meet and runs away from him, whatever happens, I don't know", said White.
