Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor confirm Las Vegas 'superfight'


"(Mayweather) finished the Pacquiao fight - Wednesday he was back in the damn gym", Ellerbe said.

One of Floyd Mayweather's former sparring partners has labelled his lucrative August showdown with Conor McGregor a "whitewash" - and says the build-up will be better than the fight.

The contest will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with the Nevada State Athletic Commission having approved the date for a Mayweather Promotions fight, Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett confirmed.

Mayweather, on the other hand, who is looking to beating the 49-0 pro boxing record of Rocky Marciano and becoming the greatest boxer ever, could pocket far more.
