Fightful/Talking MMA Pick Em' For UFC Vegas 29

You can see the press release below.

In anticipation of the unprecedented showdown between legendary boxing champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather and UFC ® champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor, the fighters will embark on a four-city international press tour beginning Tuesday, July 11 in Los Angeles where Mayweather and McGregor will square off for the very first time. 

 

Each of the four celebratory events will be OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, fitting for a fight that was made by and for the fans that have demanded it, and allow media availability* with each fighter. 

 

The Mayweather vs. McGregor world tour will touch down in four cities in three countries across four days—Los Angeles, Toronto, New York City and London—in promotion of this once-in-a-lifetime event on Saturday, August 26.  The event will be produced and distributed by SHOWTIME PPV®.

Please mark your calendars and share the public event information (only) with your readers, listeners and followers.
