I don’t think they’ll fill all 90,000 seats, but there should a pretty good turnout for the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather kickoff press conference, which is expected to go down in roughly two weeks inside Wembley Stadium in London, England.

That’s according to a report from The Sun.

McGregor, who holds the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight title, is crossing over to the “sweet science” to box undefeated pugilist Floyd Mayweather Jr., a headlining act that is expected to make beaucoup bucks at the box office.

The action takes place Sat., Aug. 26, 2017 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

That’s not too far away, all things considered, so you can expect the hype train to come barreling down the tracks even before the Wembley presser, as Showtime and Co. will want to try to squeeze as much from this mismatch as possible.
