Sky Sports Box Office will screen the hotly-anticipated boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. The fight sees the worlds of professional boxing and UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) collide.

Mayweather is an undefeated former world champion boxer who's widely considered one of the greatest pound-per-pound fighters ever. He retired in 2015, after winning 12 world titles across five weight divisions, and notching up a perfect 49-0 record.

McGregor, meanwhile, is the current UFC lightweight champion and former UFC featherweight champion. The mixed martial artist has never taken part in a professional boxing match before.

The fight takes place in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 26th August. Viewers in the UK can watch it on Sky Sports Box Office for £19.95, while those in the Republic of Ireland pay €24.95.

"This is surely one of the most anticipated and intriguing contests we've ever seen on Sky Sports Box Office," said Adam Smith, Sky Sports head of boxing. "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 top of his game?

"It's set to be a huge night in Las Vegas – one you won't want to miss."
