26 August, 2017 was Match Day for boxing champ Floyd ‘Pretty Boy’ Mayweather and martial arts expert Conor ‘Notorious’ McGregor. This was one of the most anticipated boxing matches being played out in Las Vegas. It had been advertised for months and was expected to bring in many viewers on TV. Each viewer was being charged $99 to watch the match!

Mayweather has retired twice and came out of his second retirement to fight this one boxing match with Conor McGregor. He wanted to set a new record for himself, entering the match undefeated, with a record of winning 49 matches and losing none. He was tied with boxing legend Rocky Marciano, and wanted to surpass this record.

Conor McGregor is a giant in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. What’s that, you ask? It’s fighting with mixed martial arts. Mixed martial arts is a sport where the players can use techniques from wrestling, boxing, judo, kickboxing and karate.

You might be wondering why a boxing champ would be in a boxing match with a mixed martial arts expert. Well, there was a big prize at stake: It has been rumoured that Mayweather made $200 million in that one fight, while McGregor took home about $70 million. That’s right. For one boxing match!

Mayweather won, set a new record, and both athletes went home smiling!
