Gervonta Davis Says McGregor's Confidence May Serve Him Well Against Mayweather

Welsh star will defend WBA title on undercard of McGregor vs. Mayweather OFFICIAL: Mayweather vs McGregor undercard announced

Forty-nine traditional boxers have stood in front of Mayweather and forty-nine have lost, so why would McGregor spend his time learning to fight like them?

Floyd Mayweather Jr. works out ahead of his fight against Conor McGregor, slated for Aug. 26, at the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas on Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017. "Our fight is doing unbelievable numbers".

The pay-per-view telecast will open with undefeated rising cruiserweight contender Andrew "The Beast" Tabiti taking on two-time world champion Steve "U.S.S". "I'm not anxious about that". The bout is scheduled for August 26 at T-Mobile Arena.

Tickets for the Mayweather vs. McGregor closed circuit telecast at ARIA Resort & Casino, Bellagio Resort & Casino, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, The Mirage Hotel & Casino, Monte Carlo Resort and Casino, New York-New York Hotel & Casino, Luxor Hotel and Casino and Excalibur Hotel & Casino are priced at $150, not including applicable fees and are now on sale. Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, acknowledged the high cost of the tickets is precisely why all the tickets haven't moved. "Right now, we have over $60 million in the box office". This includes all revenue from foreign and domestic partners. The four-fight main card airs on Showtime PPV, following a preliminary program live on FOX.

On Friday night, both Mayweather and McGregor had their media workouts, and plenty of storylines emerged.

McGregor's wishes might not be restricted to simply competing in boxing, either. There is language in the contract where McGregor would be fined heavily for any action outside the rules of boxing.

"You know what I heard him say yesterday?"

In addition, McGregor is an inch taller than Mayweather and has a two-inch reach advantage as well.

"He's going to come out, and he's going to keep switching". "He's going to come out southpaw and then he's going to switch the other way".

"This is a fight that has been in my crosshairs since Floyd's been opening his mouth, simple as that", McGregor said. "Experience is on my side and my fighting knowledge is on my side". The total payout, should Mayweather prevail, would be $1.04 million.

"If we're eight ounces, I'm struggling to give him two rounds, and that's the God's honest truth", McGregor said.

Gervonta Davis will put his International Boxing Federation (IBF) junior lightweight belt on the line against challenger Francisco Fonseca in the co-feature slot, and Nathan Cleverly will defend his World Boxing Association (WBA) light heavyweight title against Badou Jack.

Mayweather is staying focused on his own preparations. I never said he's going to beat me.
