The whole world will be tuning in on August 26, 2017, when Conor McGregor steps into the boxing ring for the first time in his career against the legendary Floyd Mayweather. While critics and experts alike have been quick to dismiss any chance of a victory for The Notorious One, there have also been quite a few major celebrities who have risen up in support of the Irishman.

There have been quite a few big names like Mike Tyson and Draymond Green who have come out in vocal support of the 49-0 Mayweather but not everyone believes it is a foregone conclusion. There are a number of high-profile men and women who have put their support behind the MMA fighter as he prepares to step into the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

So, just who are these illustrious men and women? Well, that's what we're here to find out. So, without any further ado, here is our list of the 5 biggest names who are supporting Conor McGregor in his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr:

This one should hardly come as any surprise to fans of professional wrestling but Becky Lynch has firmly put her support behind Conor McGregor for the August 26th showdown against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

For the uninitiated, Becky hails from Ireland - the motherland of the Notorious One. And hence, it is hardly surprising that she's come out in full support of her countryman who will be looking to make history by becoming the first man to ever beat Money.

The Lasskicker is just one person from an entire nation that will be rooting for its most famous son to defy the odds and do the impossible. "The Irish aren't here to compete, we're here to take over." Conor will be hoping those words ring true in boxing after taking over MMA.
