When Worlds Collide 

 The Hybrid Fight Of The Century 

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Back in 2015 I covered the Mayweather v. Pacquiao fight, which was fascinating! The boxing world is about to witness one of the most interesting and seemingly impossible matches in history! When I was a kid, I used to wonder if Muhammad Ali fought Bruce Lee, who would win? But back then, boxing was boxing and Karate was not. But now worlds are colliding, and we have a new genre of fighting, which is upon us and known as 'Combat Sports'.

Having the top MMA fighter go up agains the top boxer reminds me of the 1972 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Commercial from my childhood, which exclaimed, "Hey, you got chocolate in my peanut butter!?!!"

Tonight the world is about to see the five division boxing champion (WBC, WBO, WBA & Ring Welterweight Champion) Floyd Mayweather Jr, in a boxing match against Conor McGregor, who is the current UFC Lightweight Champion, and former UFC Featherweight Champion, who began his career as a MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), and a featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight. 

So how did this all come about? It all began on Conan O'brien's show back in 2015, when Conan asked Conor McGregor "What if you were in the ring with Floyd Mayweather, what do you think would happen?" Watch the video below to learn about Conor's answer...

One thing Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Conor McGregor have in common is they both wear and have HUGE Rolex collections. This fight could almost be named, "Rolex v. Rolex."

This Saturday evening in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather will be going for his 50th professional career win against Irish UFC Champion, Conor McGregor, and he claims he intends to retire after the fight.
