We’re told “the trash talk is over” and it’s now “down to business as Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor” as they get to to enter the ring in less than 48 hours for the most hotly anticipated event in boxing.
Of course, when the PPV event starts at 11am, there will be three fights before the big match between Mayweather v McGregor, but as any PPV boxing fan would know, that’s how it always is.
So, Foxtel has come to reminding fans that “there is an unprecedented level of demand around this bout, and encourages subscribers to order soon to get in on this must-see match of the year".
In case you’ve been living under a rock and this is the first time you’ve heard of the fight, or you’re a space alien and this is the first article you happen to be reading about creatures from planet Earth, “Floyd Mayweather Jr. is looking to confirm his place as the greatest pound-for-pound boxer in history as he comes out of retirement to take on UFC’s most recognised talent and reigning UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor".
Foxtel excitedly tells us that “the mega bout will be available for broadcast to Foxtel subscribers LIVE on Foxtel’s MAIN EVENT and can be streamed to anyone with an internet connection via mainevent.com.au using Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac or Linux OS or on tablets including Google Android devices and Apple iPad or iPhone devices".
