Well, this circus of a "boxing match" is officially set.

old boxing gloves nailed to the textured wall

The megafight/circus/made for reality T.V. special between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is set to go August 26th.

So let's set the table, the 40 year old, undefeated, "retired" boxer Floyd Mayweather is going to step into the ring to take on MMA great Conor McGregor.

McGregor can obviously fight, but what happens when you are wearing boxing gloves and going to to toe with one of the greatest boxers ever?

Let's ask a couple locals super stars and see what they say:

  • Jim McILroy, CEO & Founder at Food 4 Fuel - Mac Daddy. My Irish Broski!
  • Shayne Adams, Owner/Head Coach at Northern Illinois Combat Club & Fitness - The fight is a circus . I have Mayweather all day in a boxing match .

Personally, I thing Floyd is a smart "business" fighter. Two rounds, three rounds tops. "Money" Mayweather will do a little song and dance then put Conor down.
