Mayweather vs McGregor : 7 Things You Need to know !

Mayweather is the biggest draw in boxing, and, early in the negotiations for the fight, there was a bit of an argument about what the split would be between the two fighters. While no numbers are official yet, since the fight hasn’t happened and the gate/PPV/merchandising revenue (obviously) aren’t set yet, one thing is clear: Both fighters are going to make buckets of money.

Mayweather made a guaranteed $100 million from his fight against Manny Pacquiao, and previously said he took $300 million home overall after the pay-per-view numbers were factored in. This time around, Mayweather could make about the same amount. Dana White said on FS1 in April 2017: “If the fight sells as well as I think it can, Floyd makes a little north of $100 [million] and Conor makes $75 [million].”

Few athletes are as focused on branding and self-promotion as Mayweather, and his team must be salivating at the chance to trademark “50-0” as part of its efforts. Mayweather’s undefeated record is one of the biggest parts of his brand identity, and while a loss here wouldn’t stop him from making money, 50-0 surely has a much better ring to it than 49-1. As great as the number 50 is, Mayweather treasures his undefeated record and will work hard to keep it. We’ll see what McGregor has to say about that.

6. Prediction

Contrary to popular belief, this fight shouldn’t be one that is over in the first few rounds, but for it to go the distance would take a miracle. Mayweather shouldn’t have a very hard time controlling the match and taking the victory, but McGregor has never been someone to just throw in the towel and let someone beat him up. McGregor may win some of the earlier rounds, but I don’t think he has it in him to maintain dominance throughout the fight. Mayweather should be able to wear McGregor down by the middle rounds and have a good chance of ending the fight early.
