Countdown On To MayMac Superfight

After months of build-up, the eagerly awaiting meeting of Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will soon take place.

The reigning UFC lightweight champion couldn’t ask for a more difficult start to his professional boxing career as he faces an unbeaten Mayweather aiming for his 50th consecutive win.

The American hasn’t boxed since announcing his retirement two years ago


The pair are expected to take to the ring sometime after 4am tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile Tipperary super-heavyweight Dean Gardiner is the only Irish boxer in action at the World Boxing Championships today.

He faces Korean southpaw Hyeon Do Kim in the round of 32 in Hamburg.

Sean McComb has his light-welter last-16 bout tomorrow while Brendan Irvine and Joe Ward have to wait until Monday for their first fights at the tournament.
