The Fighting Worlds Collide
You know what I’m talking about. Conor McGregor has challenged the reigning undefeated boxer, Floyd Mayweather, to a fight. After months of talk, most people thought that the fighters were just “blowing smoke” when it came to an actual fight. But now, the date is set: August 26th. Just before the fall of this year, two of the world’s greatest fighters will meet in the ring to end all the debate of which fighter is the better one.
Conor “The Notorious” McGregor: The Irish-born MMA fighter who has been sweeping through the UFC with a purpose. After a crushing defeat at the hands of Nate Diaz last year, he bounced back this year to win not one, but two belts across two different weight classes. But this was not enough for him. Conor has a personality that rivals that of Mayweather, as he has an unrelenting desire to not only be the best, but to be the best in everything he attempts. His latest conquest? To take down the undefeated boxer who seems to be unbeatable.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather: The champion boxer who has accumulated a 49-0 record. He is among the elite few who have attained such a record. He has unmatched skill in the ring and a personality to go along with it. There are many words to describe Mayweather, but the two that I prefer to use are flamboyant and confident. I would say cocky also, except that he has the skill to back up nearly anything that he says. He also has a net worth of $650 million, so the man is doing something right on the business side of fighting along with the physical part of it.
The odds are in and the date is set. On August 26th in Las Vegas, the two fighting worlds will collide as two of the best fighters from each respective discipline meet. Who will come out on top? The man who seems to be unbeatable in the ring? Or the relentless fighter on a mission to prove that he can overcome any type of obstacle that might be placed in his way? At the end of the day, regardless of the outcome, history will be made. Either the 49-0 record becomes and even 50 or the two weight-class champ adds boxing to his resume.
