Conor Mcgregor vs Floyd Mayweather fight timings for India, US, UK with live streaming and TV telecast info
One of the most awaited boxing matchups in recent memory is finally upon us. UFC's start fighter Connor "The Notorious" McGregor will be taking on the undefeated professional boxer, Floyd Mayweather on the morning of Sunday, the 27th of August. The bout has been dubbed as the fight of the millennium and will be fought in front of 20,00 fans at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The 12 round bout is a one-off match that will be telecast to over 20 countries around the world. McGregor has demonstrated his boxing prowess in the UFC ring but has never fought a boxing only bout in his career. Videos of the Irish fighter training and sparring show him to be slightly awkward and ungainly, something which is not likely to lead to Floyd Mayweather underestimating the Notorious One.

McGregor is known to be a powerful boxer in the UFC but this will be his first professional boxing bout and it is bound to be a tough one considering he will be up against a boxer who has a perfect 49-0 record in the ring. Mayweather's unblemished record skews the odds heavily in the American's favour but given McGregor's ability in the ring, an upset cannot be ruled out.
