After months of speculating and sniping, I still can’t believe that Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather’s boxing match is just two weeks away! I can’t wait! We weren’t even sure they were going to be fighting until June, but the preparations for this titanic tussle are well underway, and we’ve enjoyed a fair few press conferences along with a host of controversies ahead of the big fight on August 26.
At the moment, the two fighters are being put through their paces, in an attempt to get them ready for the fight of the century down in Las Vegas, Nevada. In preparation for his boxing debut after dominating the featherweight and lightweight divisions of the UFC, 29-year-old Conor McGregor has been sparring with retired boxer and two-time boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi. A video surrounding the sparring sessions, however, has sparked even more controversy ahead of this unprecedented boxing match.
