mayweather vs mcgregor

Sky Sports Box Office is to show the big fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor on August 26th.

Boxing fans can view the hugely anticipated bout between the former world champion and the current UFC lightweight champion for £19.95.

Mayweather is undefeated in his career and has secured 12 world titles across five weight divisions.

By contrast, UFC star McGregor is a mixed martial artist who has won 18 of his 21 professional fights by knockout, but has never participated in a professional boxing match.

As a result, many will be keen to see if he is capable of causing a big upset and holding two titles in two different weights at the same time.

Adam Smith, Head of Boxing at Sky Sports, commented: "This is surely one of the most anticipated and intriguing contests we’ve ever seen on Sky Sports Box Office. 

"Can the charismatic Conor McGregor, so formidable in the octagon, make the switch to the ring and create history? What will it mean for Mayweather’s legacy - one of the greatest fighters of all time but coming out of retirement and facing a man at the very top of his game? It’s set to be a huge night in Las Vegas - one you won’t want to miss."

Sky Sports added that viewers will also be able to enjoy extensive build-up ahead of the fight on its TV channels and digital platforms.
