Sylvester Stallone backs the underdog in big fight

Sylvester Stallone backs the underdog in big fight”

And Catterall is one of many boxing figures who believes the bout with McGregor - who has never boxed as an amateur or professional - is a mis-match. He's telling me how he's going to knock Floyd Mayweather out. If the pay-per-view sales go as well as expected, Mayweather could reach $300 million and McGregor $175 million. Connor will have a hard time beating Mayweather because he's too far ahead experience-wise.

Mayweather last fought in September 2015, beating Andre Berto and then announcing his retirement.

"Listen, is he at the level of a Floyd Mayweather as far as boxing standards go?"

Conor McGregor's coach has called on Olympic champs Katie Taylor and Michael Conlan to join the undercard for the now-confirmed mega fight against Floyd Mayweather.

"She doesn't know that and I haven't spoken to her about that, but that's the plan". I guess it's about bragging rights. Whenever Conor hits people, they fall. "In short, it's all about the money", he said. "Conor is a terrific athlete and MMA fighter but this is a different sport".

"(Conor) wants to fight Floyd Mayweather on August 26, and he wants to defend his (UFC) title this year too. Mayweather is a boxer, and a damn good one.

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.

Even White, who was initially skeptical about putting his star in a boxing match, seems ready now to push the idea that he could actually win.

Ranallo started his career as a heel manager for All-Star Wrestling in British Columbia and later became the television announcer for the local promotion, and also had a stint as the lead voice of a remake of Stampede Wrestling.

And lets face it, McGregor is stepping into Mayweather's world.

Mayweather will come off a two-year retirement in a bout that McGregor has been pushing for almost that long. Though Mayweather has hit the mat only once in his career, they likely will be betting on a knockout when the two meet August 26 in Las Vegas. But that depends if McGregor can take Mayweather's power, on how tough he is. Cleverness counts and no smart aleck surrogates - trash talk, like boxing and MMA, is a solo sport. "It's entertainment", he said. "It makes it exciting", he said.

Sulaiman insists boxing will not be damaged by Mayweather-McGregor, which will come close or even better the record $623.5 million revenue made when Mayweather beat Manny Pacquiao in 2014.

We'll post running highlights of the most memorable moments each fighter delivers.
