I'm not a huge boxing, nor MMA fan.. but the idea of this fight has peaked my attention for sure!
Rumors of this fight have been swirling the past few days but on Wednesday morning Floyd Mayweather Jr. made the announcement official on social media.
Mayweather will come out of retirement at the tender age of 40 to face Conor McGregor, the UFC superstar, in a boxing match on August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Sylvester Stallone says he's rooting for McGregor because "Conor is the real-life Rocky" and he always roots for the underdog.
Do you agree with Sly?
Connor McGregor replied with his own social media pots, a rather unflattering picture of an older more tired looking Mayweather...

So who do you think will win? I know both fighters will win regardless. Experts say Mayweather will earn more than $100 million - and McGregor just under - at about $100 million.
It may wind up being the most watched pay-per-view event of all time
