Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, expects the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor fight to break records.

The Straight Blast Gym head-coach tweeted "10 weeks #McGregorVsMayweather" alongside an image of himself and The Notorious One. Mayweather, at the age of 40, will also be the much older competitor in this bout against a 28 year-old McGregor in his prime.

The contest, nearly certain to be the biggest grossing event in boxing history, was confirmed on Wednesday and is set to take place at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on August 26.

Unless you just returned to civilization moments ago, you already know that on Wednesday, it was announced McGregor and Mayweather will box August 26th.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will square off in a boxing match on August 26, according to two two people with knowledge of the deal.

Correia does see one way the UFC lightweight champ might have a chance.

Mayweather's pay-per-view record eclipsed the previous best for his title fight against Oscar de la Hoya in 2007, which pulled in 2.48m. "Conor McGregor is huge", UFC president White told Conan. When you go out and you put everything on line - I've said this about Floyd Mayweather for years. If you bet $100 on McGregor and he wins, you would win $700.

"The kid has unbelievable charisma and is a great fighter". I think that fight was so big and everybody was going so insane about it, that a lot of mistakes were made that cost them money, which is hilarious to say because that's the biggest money-making fight of all time. "I think people would love to see it".

He said: "It's definitely going to be the biggest fight ever in combat sports history and probably going to be the biggest pay day ever".
