After years of barking and uncertainty that equated to nothing until official details were announced, the official details have been announced involving Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor squaring off in a boxing match on August 26, and it is set to take place at the relatively new T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
The venue located just a few steps to the south of the famed Las Vegas Strip is becoming the new hotspot for all entertainment in the desert, and this fight is perhaps the biggest that has unfolded in Las Vegas in the last 30 years. Who will win? That’s easy. Floyd Mayweather. Here are four simple reasons why.
Floyd Mayweather Jr was born into a boxing family when he was initially birth as Floyd Joy Sinclair on February 24, 1977 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His upbringing involved several people affiliated with the boxing industry at that time, very few of whom could have possibly imagined that he would become one of the most prolific boxers in history, currently holding a record of 49–0.

Many of Floyd’s fights have gone the distance, and he has figured out exactly what needs to be done against many of his most talented opponents. He initially won a Featherweight Title all the way back in October 1988 with a win against Genaro Hernandez, and he has retained and defended his title countless times since. This includes victories against José Luis Castillo, Arturo Gotti, Miguel Cotto and even Canelo Alvarez. The unanimous decision victory against Manny Pacquiao back in May of 2015 is seen as his biggest fight ever, although the upcoming event against the brawling Irishman from the mixed martial arts world will certainly eclipse that in terms of both global monetary interest and overall revenue.
The Point System
Boxing has long been governed by a 10 point must-system of scoring, which means that some fighter must achieve 10 points during each round of 12. This bodes incredibly well for Mayweather, as he knows exactly what he needs to do to win each three-minute period.
Surprisingly, the UFC actually adapted the exact same scoring methods that boxing has utilized for nearly one hundred years, to the dismay of many who have been on the wrong end of 28-27 decisions that have gone a long way toward determining the future of mixed martial arts fighters in recent years.
Let’s be real here. Floyd Mayweather has made an incredibly kind living by punching people around his height and weight and body type directly in the face and in the body when it counts the most. He is expected to do exactly this against the mixed martial artist who cannot possibly develop skills fast enough to truly compete with the longtime undefeated champion. A few months is not long enough to eclipse arguably the single greatest fighter of the modern era, and that will be proven in short time when the two prize fighters take to the huge stage at T-Mobile Arena on the evening of Saturday, August 26.
