Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe said on the Mayweather vs. McGregor media conference call on Wednesday.

The Straight Blast Gym head-coach tweeted "10 weeks #McGregorVsMayweather" alongside an image of himself and The Notorious One. The 40-year-old Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) made it perfectly clear once the Mayweather-McGregor drama began late last year that he had no interest whatsoever in facing McGregor in an MMA match.

The contest, nearly certain to be the biggest grossing event in boxing history, was confirmed on Wednesday and is set to take place at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on August 26. For the Mayweather v McGregor fight to hit the $1bn mark it would likely need to double its pay-per-view sales.

McGregor, who has never boxed professionally, became the UFC's first dual-division champion in November 2016 and has previously challenged Mayweather to a fight under mixed martial arts rules.

The team was preparing to face off against congressional Democrats in a charity game two days later. Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured, and remained hospitalized.

The sales pitch will be relatively simple - that this is a once in a lifetime chance to see the best in boxing take on the best in MMA.

"We have actually tapped into the audience that doesn't really follow either sport", said Stephen Espinoza, vice president of the fight's broadcaster Showtime Sports.

"I'm not saying Conor McGregor's going to win", White said. And I loved the way McGregor persuaded Mayweather for this to happen.

Who will win? Totally depends on who you ask. McGregor will be the bigger fighter when they enter the ring, but will all those attributes equate to a win?

British PM Theresa May to meet fire survivors in Downing Street
Around 70 people are missing, according to Britain's Press Association, and identification of the victims is proving very hard . The tragedy has provoked a huge response from nearby communities that have donated food and shelter to the victims.

"And this isn't one of those things where we put together some type of insane fight for no reason".

Known for his devastating striking and highlight-reel knockouts, McGregor is also quick and irrational on his feet, but few would back him to beat one of the most complete boxers of all time. Fighters are going to receive at least $100 million each.

If enough time has passed to make people forget that they shelled out almost $100 for a total dud back then, another spectacularly high number is feasible.
