  • McGregor Mayweather

Adding up the fighter's earnings from endorsements and fights (including the McGregor bout) and accounting for taxes and expenses, Mayweather likely has a net worth in the range of $450 million.

Mayweather, who will bring a 49-0 record into the ring, is already recognized as one of the greatest fighters of all-time, a brilliant defensive tactician and counter puncher who has ruled the ring for 21 years.

154 pounds - The official weight limit in the fight. "I know that I'm in for a tough fight but there is one thing I do know, this fight is not going the distance". "Conor is no boxer.he has no boxing skills".

A nonplussed Mayweather shrugged off his weight disadvantage and vowed to stop McGregor inside the distance.

McGregor, meanwhile, basked in the adulation of his Irish fans who have poured into the Nevada desert gambling capital this week.

An army of Irish fans poured out onto the Las Vegas strip following the weigh-in, dancing and singing in blazing hot sunshine.

Despite what is by most barometers a massive mismatch there is global fascination in the fight that could prove to be the richest in boxing history.

Despite the fact that he is about to become the best-paid boxing debutant in history, McGregor, who started boxing as a boy before making the switch to mixed martial arts, has never had a top-level encounter as a boxer.

The hard-nosed heavy-hitters of the gambling world agree. In response, Showtime has convinced a federal judge to issue an injunction against the 44 sites it believes will show the fight Saturday night.

Douglas checked in at 42-1 in 1990, while OddsShark lists McGregor at 77-20 (or almost 4-1) in part due to the number of bets placed on him.

As of Saturday, four separate bets of $1 million or more had been placed on Mayweather to win.

Now that the fight is at hand and McGregor has ensured prize money that should exceed $100 million, everything that follows the opening bell will be about how to spin this forward.

"Their response nearly universally was 'We don't care if it's a mismatch. if there's a.01 (percent) chance that something incredible could happen, we need to watch it'".

Others however have sounded a note of caution, citing potential safety risks to McGregor given the chasm of experience between the Irishman and Mayweather.

"He would probably be a world champion", he told Press Association Sport.

"It's like a tennis player trying to play badminton", Khan said.

Jose Luis Castillo and Marcos Maidana put it on him but they've been able to do that, their feet got them into position to get up close.
