A 12-time world champion in five weight classes, the 40-year-old Mayweather retired undefeated in September 2015 as one of the greatest to ever set foot in the ring, buoyed by the box-office success that saw him shatter nearly all of the revenue records in the sport’s history. Now, he returns to challenge the bold, powerful and popular McGregor, whose elite striking skills put him in the record books as the first athlete to hold two UFC titles simultaneously, all while soaring to the mantle of the sport’s No. 1 PPV attraction at age 28.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor is a 12-round super welterweight matchup that pits the legendary boxer Mayweather against the all-time MMA great McGregor in the main event of an unprecedented four-fight pay-per-view boxing event.

Prize fighters don't need belts, and neither one is Champion. They're fighting for money. They even ridiculously call it "the money belt", like this is the WWE. Ted DiBiase should sue.

The WBC is the boxing equivalent of the first underwear company that made crotchless panties.
