Inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Floyd "Money" Mayweather, an undefeated five weight division world champion will take on Conor "Notorious" McGregor, himself the UFC Lightweight Champion, and former UFC Featherweight Champion. Who you got when Mayweather takes on McGregor in Las Vegas on August 26th?

The biggest names in combats sports are now in the final phases of their training camps, which are both taking place in 'Sin City'. "I owe the public because of the Pacquiao fight".

There were hints of the famous brashness though, when he said: "I didn't say I couldn't fight".

McGregor's team had previously told Sky Sports that they expected to wear regulation-sized 10oz gloves despite a claim from Mayweather that he would agree to 8oz versions. When you look at myself and Conor McGregor on paper, he's taller [McGregor is an inch taller], has a longer reach, he's a bigger man from top to bottom. I brought some things to his attention that will ensure the health and safety of both fighters, and prevent them from losing points. "I can't remember if that's the one with the dancing monkeys or not", McGregor said.

"I did Paulie's corner for the spar, their second after a feisty first encounter, and I can safely say it will be very interesting when the video comes out after the fight", wrote Bradley in the Irish News.

"He's a lot younger", Mayweather said of McGregor, who is 29. After all, he suggested in the same interview that McGregor actually has an advantage going into the fight despite the betting odds pegging Mayweather as the heavy favorite. Mayweather and Conor McGregor will both be fighting at 154 pounds, heavier than the 135-147 pound range that allows fighters to use 8-ounce gloves.

Mayweather also underlined his lack of knockout power as a potential issue considering he hasn't knocked out a fighter since flooring Victor Ortiz in 2011.

Also on the pay-per-view undercard is the ten-round USBA cruiserweight title fight between Andrew Tabiti and Steve Cunningham.
