Why is a UFC star fighting a boxer?
 
A pertinent question.
 
The undefeated Floyd 'Money' Mayweather will face UFC icon Conor McGregor in a boxing match which is already being described as 'The Fight of the Century' - but you would be forgiven for asking 'great, but why?'
 
Each men will have their different reasons for taking the fight, but the huge sum of money both fighters stand to make will be a considerable motivation.
 
It's estimated that the two could earn as much as $100m from the bout, although it's generally accepted Mayweather will receive a greater share of the fight purse given his superior reputation as a professional boxer.
 
Both fighters are renowned for their showmanship and the opportunity to earn a multi-million dollar paycheck was too good to ignore.
 
Both fighters have, arguably, achieved all they can in their respective disciplines.
 
Floyd Mayweather remains unbeaten in his career, winning 49 fights with 28 of those coming by knockout.
 
Why has McGregor come out of retirement?
 
Well technically he never officially retired from UFC. McGregor causes a huge furore when he posted a short statement on Twitter, appearing to announce his retirement.
 
"I have decided to retire young. Thanks for the cheese. Catch yas later," McGregor wrote.

When the much-anticipated boxing bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor was officially announced to go down on Aug. 26, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada (details), many couldn’t help but to raise an eyebrow at the selected date.
 
That’s because Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alvarez are set to throw down just three weeks later on Sept. 16 inside the same T-Mobile Arena in “Sin City” in what is arguably the most-anticipated boxing event in the last few years.
 
Pundits have suggested the Aug. 26 date was simply a way to beat “GGG” and “Canelo” to the pay-per-view (PPV) punch — or payback for this — but according to Golovkin, he doesn’t view Mayweather vs. McGregor as a fight, but merely a “show.”
 
“It’s not a fight. My fight with Canelo is a fight,” said Golovkin on a recent appearance on The Luke Thomas Show on Sirius XM.
 
“This is a show, Conor with Floyd is just a show. It’s a business show, a funny show, it’s not for us. This is not for boxing, this is for the people and it’s all for business. My fight with Canelo is true respectable boxing, respect for the sport, a true fight,” he added.
 
Even Stephen Espinoza — executive vice president for Showtime Sports — didn’t hide the fact that people don’t tune in to see Floyd knock people out, they tune in to see the spectacle, which will now be magnified thanks to the persona of McGregor.
 
You have to appreciate that honesty.
 
Still, Gennady admits he has nothing but respect for “Notorious” as a fighter, but at the end of the day, no matter how much sparring he does, he is no boxer.
 
“I respect McGregor like a UFC fighter. He’s not a boxer. He’s a good fighter, but he is no boxer,” he concluded.
 
Both PPV events are expected to carry a price tag around the $100 range, so it will be interesting to see just how much impact the timing of the fights has on each event’s PPV buys when all is said and done.
 
As far as Dana White is concerned, Mayweather vs. McGregor will have no problem in that department and will even go on to shatter PPV records.

After many months of speculation, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have signed on the dotted line to fight each other on August 26.
 
The two will meet at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, a venue with a 20,000 capacity, while millions more are likely to be watching around the world.
 
Mayweather, of course, is no stranger to big fight nights. His bout with Manny Pacquiao in May two years ago smashed box office records, with more than ?300million generated in pay-per-view sales alone.
 
Conor McGregor, too, has been a huge hit during several huge UFC fight nights. Now facing Mayweather, interest is set to be bigger still.
 
Tickets for the event are going to be incredibly difficult to come by - so here's a short guide on how you could grab one.

'Money' Mayweather, who came out of retirement in March, will lock horns with the UFC's lightweight champion on August 26.
 
Mayweather vs. McGregor, a contest which has been dubbed 'The Billion Dollar Fight, will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
 
The intrigue in the super-fight, which was first mooted in May 2016, could see a new pay-per-view buy record set.
 
Mayweather's 2015 'Fight of the Century' with Manny Pacquiao currently holds that record, which stands at a staggering 4.4 million buys.
 
Ticket sales for Mayweather vs. Pacquiao generated a staggering ?57,204,989 ($72,198,500).
 
However, if the initial ticket prices for the Michigan native's bout with the reigning UFC lightweight champion, his first in nearly two years, are anything to go by, that record will be shattered.
 
According to Las Vegas Tickets, the cheapest ticket will set fans back a staggering ?1,595 ($2,013).
 
Prices for ringside seats, which are traditionally super-expensive, make will fight fans feint.
 
The cheapest ringside ticket costs a jaw-dropping ?47,043 ($59,377), while the most expensive seat in the house will ?74,164 ($93,609).
