THE ‘freak show’ is over and the real fight of the year is here.

Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Jr captured the world’s attention and played out pretty much how most boxing experts predicted.

Golovkin vs Canelo
But now comes the real fight — and what a fight it will be.

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez against Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin is as good as it gets in the Sweet Science, a sport that is in the midst of a renaissance of sorts. They meet on Sunday (AEST) in a middleweight title clash as highly anticipated by boxing purists as was McGregor’s challenge of Mayweather to UFC fans.

Two fighters who both rank high on anyone’s pound-for-pound list. One loss between them, with Golovkin’s three middleweight belts on the line. And unlike Mayweather, they knock people out.

It shapes up as the most anticipated fight of the year in boxing.

It’s not too much of a stretch to say it might be the best middleweight clash since Marvelous Marvin Hagler and Tommy Hearns engaged in their three-round classic more than 30 years ago.

Styles really do make fights, and these are two fighters with explosive styles.

“We’re both going to fight a fight where anybody can win by knockout,” Alvarez said. “We both have the power to win by knockout. But that’s what makes for a great fight.”

It’s the best against the best in their prime in a fight fans have been clamouring to see — and there will be no excuses no matter which way it goes.


The event is broadcast live in Australia via Main Event pay-per-view, with coverage starting at 10am AEST on Sunday, September 17. The fight costs $A39.95. Subscribe HERE.


The fight will be held at Las Vegas’ 20,000-capacity T-Mobile Arena.

The fighters are expected to take the ring between midday and 1pm AEST, dependant on undercard fights.


The fight, billed and titled as Supremacy, will decide the undisputed king of boxing’s middleweight division, with the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, Ring magazine, and lineal championships all on the line.

Golovkin currently holds the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, and IBO middleweight titles.

Alvarez, who has fought recently at light middleweight and catchweight, held the WBC middleweight title before vacating it last year and will put his Ring magazine middleweight title on the line.

“Can the charismatic Conor McGregor, so formidable in the octagon, make the switch to the ring and create history?

Floyd Mayweather releases training video of August 26 Fight

FLOYD Mayweather has sent Conor McGregor a video warning for what he is coming up against on August 26 with an impressive training video from the boxing king.

Money Man looks a million dollars as he works-out at the Ten Goose Boxing Gym in California as he prepares to face the UFC icon in their cross-sport spectacle.

The boxing genius has used his mouth and to get the billion-dollar fight made and now he will let his hands and abs do the talking.

During his exercises the 49-0 ring master teased the MMA hero, saying: “Not bad for a 40 year old that’s been in the game for 21 years.”

McGregor is no stranger to using his gym work as a way to try to intimidate his August 26 rival.

The Irishman has plastered the walls of his base with a painting of his predicted victory.

I am a filthy Irish animal.

A post shared by Conor McGregor Official (@thenotoriousmma) on

McGregor’s striking coach Owen Roddy has been doing media appearances, telling the MMA hour he knows his man with cause one of the greatest sporting upsets ever.

He said: “I have no doubt in my mind he’s going do it. I think it’s going be one of the most insane nights ever.

“It’s a tall task, but if anybody could do it, Conor can.”


Conor McGregor faces the fight of his life as he looks to prevent unbeaten Floyd Mayweather reaching 50-0.

But The Notorious will not be alone as he brings some of the biggest names in the MMA industry to his corner for the bout against Money.

McGregor’s boxing coach Owen ‘Rowdy’ Roddy will naturally be by the fighter’s side for the bout.

And Roddy confirmed he will be joined by SBG (Straight Blast Gym) mastermind John Kavanagh.

UFC fighter Artem Lobov will also be there, with a possible fourth person yet to be announced.

Roddy told MMA Fighting: “At the moment, it’s going to be me, John, possibly Artem and I think there’s four.

“Obviously he’ll have to get his own cut man and stuff like that.

“He hasn’t sorted that just yet, but it’ll definitely be myself, John and Artem at the moment.”

Conor McGregor moves towards Mayweather showdown

CONOR McGREGOR continues to work towards his ‘billion dollar fight’ with Floyd Mayweather after officially applying for his boxing licence.

The UFC star is determined to beat the undefeated veteran in the most lucrative bout in history and penned his side of the agreement yesterday.

Mayweather is yet to sign on but is also believed to be keen on getting in the ring at some point this year.

But McGregor continues to put his own cards on the table and has now sent off for his boxing licence in the state of Nevada.

It sets the stage for a glamour showdown at the MGM Grand, and NSAC chief Bob Bennett is confident the licence will be granted.

He told Boxing News: “Conor McGregor has submitted an application to the Nevada State Athletic Commission for a boxing licence. We are currently awaiting additional documents from him in support of his application.

“One of the critical things you have to take into account: Conor’s a phenomenal athlete. When you go back, he took up kickboxing at the age of 12. As a youth, he became an All-Ireland boxing champion.

“He goes to the UFC, of course he had several fights before that, and while he’s with the UFC he’s 21-3 with 17 of those wins coming via knockout or TKO.

“He’s a stand-up fighter, he’s a southpaw, he hits like a ton of bricks, he’s got a great jaw, he’s 5’ 9” and he’s got a reach of 74 inches (187cm).

“If you take a look at his wins in the UFC, they’re predominantly from striking and if you take a look at the fact he was able to move from 145 lbs (65kg) to 155 (70kg) to 170 (77kg), he’s displayed some awesome unarmed combat skills.

“He’s proven that he can fight as a stand-up fighter. I’ve seen some tape of him boxing, I’m sure I’ll get an updated version of his skill-set as a fighter. I certainly think he’s worthy of being approved to fight Floyd Mayweather. His UFC background is critical in approving this fight.” Source: News.Com.AU

Report: Floyd Mayweather offering Conor McGregor $50 Million for boxing match

Patrick McDermott/Getty Images
While not many believe it can be finalized, details about a possible boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather continue to go public it seems. ‘Money’ has claimed that the cross-over fight could beat his pay-per-view record against Manny Pacquiao, and net them both a ‘great’ payday at the same time.

According to TMZ, the current offer Mayweather is giving McGregor is at $50 million. The report states that the proposed bout would be on New Year’s Eve, in Las Vegas.

They also cite a source close to Floyd’s camp, who says that Mayweather has yet to reach out and discuss terms with Dana White and the UFC, which currently has McGregor under contract.

Footage emerges of Conor McGregor sparring with former IBF champion

IS the possibility of a superfight between Conor McGregor and boxing veteran Floyd Mayweather becoming more real?

While nothing has been confirmed, both fighters have expressed their interest in going toe-to-toe in the boxing ring, with Mayweather even suggesting last week that a bout would “absolutely” happen.

It seems McGregor is just as keen to try his hand against boxing’s best, even claiming to “run boxing” in a recent tweet.

UFC boss Dana White, however, seems to be the major roadblock in the bout going ahead.

Considering McGregor is contracted exclusively to the UFC, any fight involving the Irishman would have to be run through the organisation — not something that would likely appeal to five-division boxing world champion Floyd.

“Conor McGregor is under contract with the UFC. Listen, if Floyd wants to fight Conor, call me Floyd,” White said last week.

Regardless, McGregor doesn’t appear to be holding back in his fight preparations, despite the fact that his name doesn’t appear on any UFC cards in the near future.

After posting a number of images on his social media accounts, all signs seem to suggest that the “Notorious” is preparing himself for a fight in a square ring.

Solid rounds today with @chrisvanheerden001! Thank you brother! Great work.

A photo posted by Conor McGregor Official (@thenotoriousmma) on

Two days after he posted an image with former IBF welterweight international champion Chris Van Heerden to his Instagram account, footage surfaced on Wednesday of McGregor sparring at the Box’N Burn gym in Brentwood, LA.

The two minute video showed both southpaws facing off in headgear and regularly tagging each other. McGregor understandably copped more than what he dealt out, and was accused by some viewers of lacking head movement a correct boxing stance.

According to the video’s description, which was posted by the official Box’N Burn YouTube channel, the footage showed just the first of 12 rounds.

Soon after the video began circulating online, it was made private by the user, hiding it from the public eye.

“Video is private now… anyone have a mirror?” one Reddit user said.

“In less than hour, too.

Would have liked to see this,” another commented.

Van Heerden even gave his partner the tick of approval, writing on Twitter that McGregor was “right up there” with some of the top fighters he had sparred against.

Van Heerden is certainly no mug in the ring, with a record of 24-2-1 and almost 10 years as a professional, the 28-year-old knows a thing or two about sparring — not a bad partner for someone potentially preparing for their first boxing match.

Not everyone is convinced that McGregor’s recent obsession with boxing is indicative of a looming superfight however, with the possibility of a rematch with Nate Diaz raised.

MMA pundit Tom Rooney of the Independent claimed McGregor was preparing for a rematch with the UFC welterweight after sparring with a boxer of the same weight class.

“Conor McGregor is currently in Los Angeles enjoying the sunshine while preparing for an unspecified bout, but if his latest sparing partner’s physical dimensions are anything to go by, it won’t be against Floyd Mayweather,” Rooney said.

“The showdown between the Dubliner and Nate Diaz, which was pulled from the main event slot of UFC 200 when the former refused to fulfil media obligations, will soon be rescheduled.

“McGregor recently sparred with South African boxer Chris van Heerden who, funnily enough, has an uncannily similar frame to that of Diaz.

“The former IBF welterweight champion stands at 5’11” — just an inch shorter than the Californian — and is also a rangy southpaw.”

Mayweather: If I fight, it’s only against Conor McGregor

##MCGREGOR VS MAYWEATHER##Floyd Mayweather Jr. still isn’t sure whether he’ll be returning to the ring to resume his career, but he’s taken the guesswork out of who he’ll be facing if he does choose to come back to the sport in 2016 or thereafter.

Mayweather says the only guy he’ll face is UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor. He’s not even a boxer, and the only experience he has in fighting is the standup fighting he does during his MMA fights. Mayweather is really hedging his bets by going after a UFC fighter for his next fight.

If Mayweather was an NFL team, he would be targeting the equivalent of an elementary school team for the next game. McGregor is so unskilled in terms of his boxing ability that you can’t even put on the map. He would be a fighter with elementary skills going against a master in Mayweather.

Whether the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight takes place ultimately could come down to whether or not McGregor is given permission by the UFC to fight Mayweather in a boxing event, and if Mayweather can receive the nine-figure payday he wants from one of the networks like Showtime to take the fight. Getting over $100 million for what promises to be a terrible one-sided affair against McGregor seems almost unfair to the network that ultimately agrees to give Mayweather the payday, as well as the fans that will be paying to see it thinking it will be competitive.

“If I do fight, it’s only against Conor McGregor … not against nobody else,” said Mayweather to ESNews (below). “Because this matchup is so intriguing. You have (a boxer) against an MMA fighter — one of the best MMA fighters to ever … stand up and do it. He’s a strong fighter, and when I look at his fights, he’s a little faster than I thought he was.”

McGregor is far from one of the best ever standup fighters in the sport. There has been plenty of others that have looked far better than him. McGregor is more of the flavor of the week for UFC. The top fighters in that sport last only a short period of time before they’re beaten by younger guys with better skills, and then they’re quickly forgotten. They have their 15 minutes of fame and then are pushed to the side by other guys, and the process repeats itself over and over again. McGregor is the hot name right now after his recent match against Nate Diaz, which he lost. McGregor being more popular than Diaz is likely the reason why Mayweather is still fixated in fighting him rather than Diaz. MCGREGOR VS MAYWEATHER

I don’t think any fan really believed that Mayweather would end up career at 49-0. When he announced he was retiring after his fight against Andre Berto last September, many fans saw it as little more than a vacation for Mayweather for six to twelve months. After resting for the last eight months, Mayweather is making noise about a comeback for win No.50.

What’s surprising to people is Mayweather choosing an MMA fighter rather than a boxer like Gennady Golovkin, who the boxing world would love to see Mayweather fight. Mayweather has already ruled out a fight against Golovkin in strong terms by saying that the Kazahstn fighter needs to move up two divsions to fight a light heavyweight like Andre Ward.

Mayweather’s rationale for Golovkin doing that is because he himself moved up weight classes during his career. The difference between Golovkin and Mayweather’s situation is dramatically different. Mayweather continued to fill out during his career. Golovkin doesn’t have that type of body. He’s a junior middleweight in size, and he doesn’t have the frame to move up to 168 or 175 to fight the bigger fighters like Mayweather is suggesting.

“We probably could break that number,” Mayweather said about him and McGregor breaking the PPV record set by the Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight last year in May 2015. “Anything is possible.”

That’s not possible for Mayweather vs. McGregor to break the all-time PPV mark because McGregor isn’t well known like Pacquiao was to the boxing fans. You have to be an MMA fan to know who McGregor is. Besides that, McGregor lost his last fight, and he would have to learn how to box in four to five months to take the fight against Mayweather.

I don’t care how naïve a boxing fans is about the sport; they’re just not going to be foolish enough to think that McGregor can learn a completely different sport in a short period of time so that he can compete against Mayweather. He fans are going to see through Mayweather’s ploy by fighting a boxing novice and stay away in droves rather than throwing away their money on a paying to see a mismatch on PPV between Mayweather and McGregor.

“I’m pretty sure we’re going to have a master plan to make that fight happen,” said Mayweather. “It hasn’t happened, yet, but we locked down some dates, me and my team, me and Al Haymon, me and Leonard Ellerbe. We locked down some dates, in different countries, in different cities in the United States. I think it will be so entertaining, if we can do it. If we can put a boxer with an MMA fighter. I can’t overlook that guy,” said Mayweather.
I think the fans would be more entertained if Mayweather chose to fight Golovkin, the winner of the Shawn Porter vs. Keith Thurman, or a rematch with Pacquiao. However, those fights would involve Mayweather taking some real risks, and he would have to actually earn his money fighting those guys. Mayweather’s perfect ring record would be at risk, and he could wind up at 49-1 instead of 50-0. Perhaps that’s why we’re not hearing anything from Mayweather about wanting to take a risk in fighting one of those guys because there would be so much for him to lose. Those fighters didn’t just take up boxing recently. They’ve been fighting for years since they were young at the sport of boxing. Mayweather could lose, which is perhaps why he’s not looking in the direction of fighting any of them.
