Watching this video, I finally understand why Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor has a legitimate chance of knocking out undefeated pound-for-pound boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.
LOL ... just kidding.
Showtime released the first official video promo for their Aug. 26 boxing match (details), which takes place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. But before that happens, both combatants will hit the road for next week’s world tour.
Find out where and when that’s happening right here.
No doubt the network — which is expected to clean up when the pay-per-view (PPV) buys are tallied — will crank out several more promotional videos as we inch closer to fight night, which is just over a month from today.
Until then, we’ll have to rely on various training clips (like this one) and sound bites to get our fill. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on where you stand), there is no shortage of pre-fight hype to keep combat sports fans satiated.
Tick tock, tick tock...
