McGregor: Countdown to the fight Saturday night in Las Vegas

Floyd Mayweather kept his record perfect defeating Conor Mc Gregor in 10 rounds via TKO on Saturday night to improve to 50-0

Conor McGregor is set go go head to head with Floyd Mayweather Jr tonight in Las Vegas, in his first ever professional boxing match. And people in the Boston area most certainly will be filling up the numerous Irish bars around the Hub to cheer for McGregor.

Saturday's one-off bout is projected to be the richest fight in history, with Mayweather poised to earn as much as $200 million and McGregor potentially pocketing around $100 million.

A fearless and vicious fighter taking on an aging boxer who hasn't fought in nearly two years, McGregor's best shot at a victory will be connecting with a thundering left hand like the one that dropped Jose Aldo 13 seconds into their UFC featherweight championship fight. But the Las Vegas smart money is all streaming towards Mayweather with reports of several $1 million bets being laid on the 'Money Man'.

McGregor: Referee's stoppage of fight too early
Almost 6000 seats were left unsold for Mayweather-McGregor

"The casual fans were absolutely adamant", Espinoza said.

"And that's why they're going to watch it".

The delay appeared to be linked to numerous reviews that found the AI appeared to struggle with natural language voice commands. The AI also responds to contextual, cross-application commands such as, "Send the photo just taken to Mom".

But while McGregor, a long-odds underdog, has attracted most wagers, the majority of the money is on Mayweather.

So with a conservative estimate of five or six million buys, multiplied by $100 adds up to an obscene amount of money. money that the likes of McGregor has never seen before.

With waves of green-shirted fans in a crowd of around 6 000 roaring their support for the Irish superstar, McGregor tipped the scales at 153 pounds, well inside the 154-pound limit.

"I feel Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez title bout in the middleweight category is a bigger event that Mayweather-McGregor", said Waseem. He's not a bull in a china shop by any stretch of the imagination, but if his only chance according to the experts is to bum rush Mayweather and catch him early, will he change his strategy and go for it all?

A nonplussed Mayweather shrugged off his weight disadvantage and vowed to stop McGregor inside the distance.

Floyd Mayweather was suggesting all week that Conor McGregor was struggling to make weight and it seems his team were equally convinced.
