The boxing circus has rolled into town with Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor beginning their world press tour for the upcoming August 26 fight. The first two days of the press tour had just about a little bit of everything, including a lot of trash talk.
Mayweather, boxing's former pound-for-pound king, and McGregor, the UFC's biggest superstar, launched their joint promotional tour on Tuesday inside Staples Center. The pay-per-view event will air on Showtime and is expected to generate hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, potentially breaking several records set by Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in 2015.
Elsewhere in Monaco, the World Boxing Super Series had its gala and announced the opening rounds of their cruiserweight and super middleweight tournaments and the matchups that will take place.
The Manny Pacquiao vs. Jeff Horn saga reaches another chapter with the WBO independently reviewing the fight and determining whether or not Horn won the controversial bout.
All that and more is contained in this week’s edition of the Fightful Boxing Newsletter. I would like to thank everyone for the feedback and I hope to improve the newsletter with each new edition.
