Whether you’re a fight fan or not, there’s a good chance that you watched when Conor McGregor fought Floyd Mayweather in August of 2017. It was a spectacle like we hadn’t seen until that point. There had been instances of crossover fights like when James Toney fought Randy Couture in the UFC and some of Anderson Silva’s boxing fights, but this was bigger than all of those together tenfold.
Despite the result being what it was, the event garnered enough money and attention that there have been talks of a rematch and even talks of Conor fighting other stars in the sport. The most recent on that list? WBA Super welterweight titleholder Manny Pacquiao.
