The man formerly known as Pretty Boy will emerge from a hiatus to surpass Rocky Marciano and extend his pristine professional boxing record to 50-0 if he wins and McGregor will also set a world record if he defeats Mayweahter.
According to UFC President Dana White on Sports Center, the fight will be held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Aug. 26, and though Mayweather has opened as a prohibitive favorite—the early line requires an $800 outlay to return $100 in profit, per OddsShark —it’s got the potential to draw the mainstream interest that fueled Mayweather’s 2015 bout with Manny Pacquiao to more than 4 million pay-per-view buys..

LET’S LOOK AT THEIR DEFENCE
Floyd Mayweather is one of the best defensive boxers in history. He’s great with his feet and is able to block and parry punches which make him exceptional.
Mayweather has got a solid chin and is capable of taking the occasional shot that slips through his guard.
Conor McGregor Compared to a lot of UFC fighters is skilled in terms of stand-up defense.He takes advantage of his range and has been able to withstand the shots that do land too. He’s not faced a boxer though.

Another Aspect to look into is their Power and strength:
Floyd Mayweather possesses power but doesn’t rely on it as a primary path to victory. He has positive attitude toward defense and controlling his opponent’s work rate, which means he doesn’t punch aggressively enough to knock out opponents regularly. Instead, he counters them into submission or potshots them into a decision loss.
Based on results, McGregor is the puncher in this fight.
Few would deny Mayweather is the best boxer of his era.He’s proficient at all facets of the sport,. But perhaps his greatest asset is an ability to adjust to whatever is thrown at him once the bell rings.
McGregor is a phenomenon in the Octagon, but his skill set in a four-cornered ring is a mystery.
Some of his biggest MMA wins have resulted from heavy hands, particularly his 13-second blowout of Aldo at 145 pounds in December 2015. He’s quick and precise with shots too, and he was able to survive in a rematch against Diaz thanks to footwork and finesse rather than brute force.
Mayweather’s primary opponent in late August may be overconfidence.
It’s true he’s facing a man whose boxing experience amounts to mere sparring sessions, but it’s also true that man, in his chosen line of work, has shown an ability to lay out foes Mayweather’s size and larger with single shots.
Presuming he arrives with his customary work ethic and conditioning, it’s likely Mayweather will employ his typical tactic of frustrating the opponent by making it nearly impossible to land a clean shot while landing precise counters of his own. McGregor may be a little more difficult to discourage than an older Pacquiao or an overmatched Berto were in 2015, but the strategy ought to look similar.
Ever the showman, Conor Mcgregor will want to jump on Floyd Mayweather quickly and decisively.
His southpaw stance, speed and power will give him chances to score early on Mayweather and force the undefeated fighter to retreat as he adjusts to the unique task in front of him. The problem for McGregor, though, is if he doesn’t hit the target early, he almost certainly won’t hit it late.
The MMA star’s best approach may be to fight Mayweather similar to the way Ortiz did in 2011 and Marcos Maidana did twice in 2014, with the younger men repeatedly trying to rough Money up and get him out of his rhythm. It didn’t end well for Ortiz, who was KO’d, or Maidana, who lost two decisions, but those 28 combined rounds were as competitive as Mayweather had in a long time.
Mayweather’s game plan has remained consistent throughout his career, and it has carried him to victory every time. While McGregor has the physical tools to upset Mayweather, it would appear Mayweather has the style to give him fits too. The odds are heavy in his direction for a reason.
McGregor VS Mayweather boxing Fight predictions
Mayweather have been getting higher stakes and predictions have been in favor of him
He’s never lost a professional bout, has nearly all the advantages heading into fight night and nearly every conceivable scenario against McGregor ends with the Irishman losing.
The chance that can give McGregor an edge is his age. If Mayweather, who’s taken long layoffs before, comes back from this one looking like a 40-year-old and with some erosion to the subtle skills that made him great, he could get overwhelmed by a 29-year-old looking to make an internet-breaking statement.
Or if McGregor,with skills lands a left hand like the one that separated Aldo from consciousness, Mayweather could lose balance and be knocked out hereby bringing his record down to 49-1.
With no ring experience for McGregor comes in as the sort of threat many thought Manny would be two years ago In the end, though, it won’t.
Instead, a prepared and in-shape Mayweather should be able to elude whatever storm he faces in the first few rounds before gradually following his traditional script and beating his man into a precision pulp as the fight extends. It’ll be even more decisive given McGregor’s lack of a Plan B, which means 50-0 ought to be official sometime in Round 7 as the one-time dual-UFC champ retreats back to the Octagon with a TKO loss.
