Think Mayweather-McGregor is a freak show? How about these?

When Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor head to Las Vegas for their much-anticipated boxing pay-per-view bout on August 26, the expectations for a circus atmosphere and straight cash for the participants will be large.

"It's official", Mayweather said on his Instagram account next to a video poster of both fighters.

Rumors and reports of a fight have been floating for nearly a year, with both fighters openly acknowledging a potential bout. Conor is bigger, stronger, younger, and has a longer reach'.

Mayweather retired in September 2015 after beating Andre Berto to improve his professional boxing record to 49-0.

"They went smoothly. Floyd Mayweather surrounds himself with smart people and we got the deal done. It's definitely the biggest fight ever in combat sports history, and probably going to be the biggest payday ever", UFC president Dana White said. Still, the fans want this match thanks to the promotional ability of McGregor, who has been calling Mayweather out for years. McGregor will be the bigger fighter when they enter the ring, but will all those attributes equate to a win?

'He has incredible power, a power that nobody else has. "Really we haven't seen anything in modern history that resembles it, it's impossible to predict how many sales this will do". 'You won't see many other training partners around - only a Russian-Irishman can take those bombs. "I'm starting to work on the Mayweather side now".

Lobov: "Floyd hasn't faced anyone significant for a few years".

American Holly Holm, who will take on Brazilian Bethe Correia in the headliner of the Fight Night here, said she was looking forward to watch the mouth-watering clash between McGregor and Mayweather. At the end of the day, Showtime put up a lot of money to get Floyd Mayweather over there and to promote his fights. That's what makes it a great fight'.

Mayweather will come off a two-year retirement in a bout that McGregor has been pushing for almost that long. "People are asking, 'If Conor can hit him with his powerful left hand, will Mayweather be able to survive that?'". Mayweather has spent the last decade frustrating and outpointing challengers to his pound for pound throne, and none of them came close to beating him either.
