The Undercard For Mayweather vs McGregor Has Been Confirmed

Mayweather-McGregor Prop Bets Include Trump Bieber and More

Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe said Thursday that the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight was on pace to break the all-time boxing gate record, despite characterizations suggesting otherwise.

And with ticket prices set for their August 26 fight at one of the highest price points in sports history, both fighters are counting on those attending to do the same.

"I haven't personally invited the president, but I am told an invitation is out there", Ellerbe said, via USA Today.

Casually dressed in a black T-shirt and shorts, the bluster and profanity of the recent four-city promotional tour undertaken with McGregor was replaced by a more sober analysis.

"Um, it's like doing your homework". It's not really watching fight tapes, it's about knowing the person you're facing across the ring from you. He was two hours late, but when he arrived, the 40-year old still put on a show.

"When I seen him in New York - they showed New York", Mayweather said, referring to Showtime's "All Access" reality show filmed to promote Mayweather-McGregor.

You can add Conor McGregor to the illustrious list.

We wonder how many more apologies we'll hear from these two warriors before fight night.

"It's a pleasure to be a part of Team McGregor and we very much look forward to being in his corner over the next 18 months". "It was clear that the demand for this fight was going to be incredible".

"A fighter like Andre Berto isn't even supposed to go the distance with Floyd Mayweather, but remember, I was 38".

"He's confident. They're always confident. You know, guys, it takes time to plan and get it together".

Cleverly last fought in October, when he stopped Juergen Braehmer in the sixth round to win the secondary belt on Braehmer's turf in Germany.

"This is a fight I have wanted ever since Badou Jack moved to light heavyweight and I'm delighted to fight in Vegas on an event like this", Cleverly said. "Former super middleweight world champion Badou Jack is making his light heavyweight debut, and looking to take the title away from a tough and experienced Nathan Cleverly".
