Undefeated boxing sensation Floyd Mayweather Jr. will box Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor atop a four-fight pay-per-view (PPV) event on Sat., Aug. 26, 2017, inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
While “Money” and ‘Notorious” are the 12-round, non-title main event, and rightly so, the Showtime-produced pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza will also feature three world title fights to get the action underway.
The complete “Money Fight” line up below:
PPV Main Card (9 p.m. ET):
Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0) vs. Conor McGregor (0-0)
IBF junior lightweight champion Gervonta Davis (18-0) vs. Francisco Fonseca (19-0-1)
WBA light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly (30-3) vs. Badou Jack (21-1-2)
Andrew Tabiti (14-0) vs. Steve Cunningham (29-8-1) for vacant USBA cruiserweight title
FOX Prelims (7 p.m. ET):
Thomas Dulorme (24-2) vs. Yordenis Ugas (19-3)
Juan Heraldez (12-0) vs. Jose Miguel Borrego (13-0)
“What a night this will be for fight fans,” Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, said in today’s release. “Not only will they witness a first-of-its-kind main event, but they will also see two incredible world title fights, as Mayweather Promotions’ very own current and former world champions go head-to-head in separate bouts.”
