Boxing hall of famer Lewis slams Mayweather-McGregor as 'ridiculous'

Floyd Mayweather Jr

Showtime executive says McGregor vs. Mayweather will happen 'early fall' if everyone remains 'reasonable'

The fight, which is scheduled on 26th of August this year was set to be held in Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena, which reportedly has the capacity to cater about 20,000 sports fans has been set to host the fight.

According to a recent report from the Sporting News, former WWE commentator Mauro Ranallo will be doing play-by-play for the much-anticipated upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. He announced his retirement after the bout, but made it clear earlier this year that he would be willing to come out of retirement, but only to fight McGregor.

"He's a hell of a competitor", Mayweather told BSOTV (via Fox Sports).

McGregor will be the overwhelming underdog, but win or lose the showdown is likely to propel him into the consciousness of many non-fight fans around the world.

Here in Ireland, McGregor is priced at 4/1 with Paddy Power and Mayweather is at 1/6 as well.

"They asked for this fight". In fact, some have argued that McGregor will have difficulty even landing on "Money", a defensive genius. Mayweather responded three weeks later with his own less polished version of a poster, and the unbeaten champion claimed he had started the rumors of a McGregor bout. In July 2015, McGregor arrived for the biggest media engagement of his life.

Thomas, 24, has never won a major but gave himself a great opportunity of breaking his duck in Wisconsin with a masterful display. The soft, forgiving conditions created opportunity for major movement up the leaderboard for those players willing to take it.

As these rumors spread like wildfire, both parties are consistent to give away nothing.

He added: 'You're supposed to stand behind your man.

He's been to Mayweather fights in the past. In the caption, Mayweather instructed McGregor: "Before you ask for $25 million, be worth more than $25 million".

"Right now he's just doing boxing".

"I don't believe it would damage boxing because is always going to be about man will always want to fight and man will always want to know the result", Lewis said.
