Backlash from Mayweather-McGregor will last years, says promoter Duva

Probably not. Pacquiao was past his prime by the time he fought Mayweather, but he was still one of the best fighters of his generation.

Meanwhile, UFC giant Dana White has revealed McGregor will weigh-in at 154 pounds and said that star is "100 per cent positive he will win this fight".

Everybody's talking about Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather right now, and that's because the two infamous fighters are set to face off in August. Boxing gloves are significantly heavier at 10 ounces, made for heavy contact. Knockout? Unlikely, unless someone quits the fight because of something that's said. "Everybody is happy with this deal", he said.

On the other side there's McGregor, a man whose brashness has taken him from fighting on the preliminaries of a UFC event, to becoming the first fighter to hold two titles in two divisions, to now being a part of the biggest fight in recent memory, all within four years.

White on if this will break the PPV record: "I think this breaks the record in U.S., the UK, Australia and Canada, too".

Those monster numbers rely on how many of us will buy the fight on pay-per-view. I think it can be good, just understand what you're signing up for. "And the casual fans we always want to bring into the tent are going to be disappointed again".

The two fighters have gone back and forth for almost a year regarding a potential showdown with both men previously stating they each wanted US$100 million (RM425 million) for the fight. It's a great end of the year for fight fans. It would be more palatable if it was closer to the $60 range of UFC events, but I don't see that happening. As with May-Pac, there won't be a lot of violence (probably even less this time), but if you like things like quickness and footwork, you could enjoy this show.

"It's insane, I read all these posts where people say Mayweather's gonna have his hands full landing on Conor because of Conor's skill and footwork and movement", he said. "We'll do Embedded series leading up to it and we're coming up with other plans on what we'll do".

Griffin, who now serves as UFC's vice president of athlete development, said MMA fighters might focus on interval training, sprints and more explosive movements, while boxers train for endurance. Mayweather's game is built around defense, and fortunately for him, age doesn't slow down defense almost as quickly as it does offense. If you're not the boss in there, you don't get to choose when you rest and when you fight.
