Floyd Mayweather, Connor McGregor both below weigh-in limit

That fight will take place September 16 in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena, the same venue as Mayweather-McGregor.

The 49-0 undefeated boxing star of Floyd Mayweather, 40, has put his reputation on the line to face MMA star, the "Notorious" Conor McGregor. His knockout power is proven, his speed is very good and he has a size advantage in this fight that's been undersold to a large extent.

This isn't MMA, where fighters often have to defend so much against kicks and takedowns that they leave their chins unguarded. The "smart money" is on favorite Mayweather, legendary oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro said. "You know that", McGregor said.

Mayweather didn't seem fazed. As "Money" attempts to earn career win No. 50, many initially thought McGregor would be his easiest opponent in years. You'd take (a fight against him) because it's a big name. "It comes down to the two competitors in the ring".

The spectacle resumed Friday afternoon at T-Mobile Arena.

He weighed 153 pounds and says he could be as big as 170 when he steps in the ring Saturday.

The likelihood remains that Saturday's fight will prove so uncompetitive in Mayweather's favour that interest in other potential crossover match-ups will cease.

Had McGregor weighed over 154 lbs., he would have received a fine taken out of the his fight purse.

"The worst case", Kornegay continues, "Is for McGregor to knock him out early, especially in that first round". "It's just going to be me and him in that ring".

Mayweather smiled all the way to the stage and was milking the boos as he slowly walked towards the platform.

Adding to his confidence, Floyd said "It wont go the distance". He's coming out of retirement for the fight. It's a hybrid of ESPN and TMZ, sports and reality television, world-famous celebrity and world-class athlete.

Both men are arrogant and never short of a word or two. McGregor will be fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The PPV, which will cost $100, is scheduled to begin at 9pm ET, meaning the Mayweather vs McGregor bout might not start until midnight on the East coast, so plan accordingly.
