Boxing: Mayweather vs McGregor-World Tour

“This isn’t a circus.” Mayweather insists. Promises to ride unicycle and juggle during bout with McGregor

Citing numerous sports experts that have deemed his upcoming bout with mixed martial artist Connor McGregor a circus, boxer Floyd Mayweather went on the offensive Monday afternoon.

“This is a serious fight, and I am sick and tired of people saying that it is just a cash grab, with no real value.” Mayweather said.  “Connor McGregor is a champion fighter, with knockout power, and I have barely been training. I’ve been drinking and partying, and I have hardly even gone to the gym. So anything can happen.”

Tickets to the event that is being held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this weekend are still available, and many believe that is why Mayweather is still doing his best to promote the fight. He has heard the talk that this fight is just a circus, and he disagrees.

“Yeah, I’ve heard that this fight is a circus.” Floyd retorted. “Just to prove how ridiculous that is, I have decided that I am going to ride a unicycle, and juggle oranges while fighting McGregor. It will not be easy, and there is a good chance that he knocks me out, but this is a legitimate fight. I want everyone to realize that this will be the crowning achievement for my fight record. This totally authentic championship fight will be an amazing finish to my amazing career.”

LeBron James to take on Michael Phelps in swim race on Mayweather vs. McGregor undercard

The Floyd Mayweather vs. Connor McGregor fight has taken some criticism for being a shameless money grab by many in the sports world. The formerly retired championship boxer Mayweather, will square off against the UFC lightweight champion Connor McGregor, on August 26th in Las Vegas.

Nevermind that McGregor has never fought a professional boxing match. Forget for a moment that Mayweather has only selected opponents that he knows are inferior. UFC president Dana White says that this will be a competitive fight, and he is in the process of booking an undercard that will be fitting.

It was announced on Monday, that Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James will take on former Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps in a 100 meter freestyle swimming sprint prior to the big fight.

White answered critics that said this is turning into more of a circus than a legitimate boxing match. “This is not a circus. We are trying to put together the top contenders that we can find. Floyd and Connor are the top two contenders.” White stated. “Granted, Floyd is retired, and Connor plays a different sport, but they are still a very intriguing matchup. And this race between Lebron and Michael is going to be top notch as well. LeBron James is one of the top athletes in the world today. Are you really going to bet against him? And Michael Phelps is old. He’s super old. He smokes dope. I’m telling you. This is going to be a really close race. Who knows? LeBron is going to beat him. And then he just might swim in the next Olympics, and never return to basketball. Never say never.”

Is there any truth to the rumor that that is fight is just being rushed to take place to upstage the Gennady Golovkin vs. Canleo Alvarez fight that is scheduled for September 16th, and being promoted by Golden Boy promotions?

“That is absolutely false.” White told the Daly Dose. “We didn’t even pay attention to that. We simply wanted to get the top stars into the ring, and the pool as soon as possible. We didn’t even know there was another fight. We are simply trying to put together a quality card. A legitimate card. A card featuring some of the top performers that we can find. By the way, do you have Usain Bolt’s number? We were thinking he might want to have a skating race against Sidney Crosby!”
