Know your fighters!

Floyd Mayweather Jr. aka ‘Money’ is an American former professional boxer who hails from Michigan. The 39-year-old legendary orthodox boxer retired last year with an awe-inspiring record of 49-0. The undisputed champion remained professionally unbeaten in a career that spanned for approximately 20 years between 1996 and 2015. Mayweather is also a five-division world champion, having won a total of 15 world titles in addition to the lineal championships across four unique weight classes. ‘Pretty Boy’ who presently works as a worldwide boxing promoter had previously claimed bronze medal for the USA in featherweight boxing division at the Atlanta 1996 Olympics.

Conor McGregor aka ‘The Notorious’ is an Irish professional mixed martial artist who hails from Dublin. The 28-year-old fighter currently plies his trade in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is now the reigning UFC Lightweight champion. During his UFC career, ‘Mystic Mac’ has successfully competed in three divisions; featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight. In 2016, McGregor registered his name in the record books by becoming the first fighter in UFC’s history to simultaneously hold titles in two divisions; featherweight and lightweight champions. He has an outstanding record which stands at 21-3, that proves exactly why he is considered as the face of the fighting extravaganza by UFC chief Dana White.
