"It'll be a star-studded affair and the biggest event ever and everybody will be talking about this for years to come."
Leonard Ellebre, the CEO of Mayweather Productions expectes the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor clash on August 26th to break all records and will be the "biggest event ever."
Ellerbe is a fan of McGregor but is wary of the threat he possesses: "one thing I've been impressed with when I've been watching Conor McGregor is his hand game. He's a very slick guy. It looks like when he throws shots, they don't look hard but the impact his shots have I'm like 'Damn.'
Las Vegas has been confirmed as the venue for the boxing and UFC crossover event and the sense of the unknown is something that has captured imaginations. The world's best boxer against the two weight UFC world champion.
Ellerbe admits there is a different feel in the build up as opposed to Mayweather's last fight:
UFC President Dana White responded with a more "all conquering" approach and that “The McGregor clan has been taking over villages for the last 300 years and Floyd’s village is next.”
Ellerbe has pointed out time and time again that this fight is going to be bigger, bigger than anything we have ever seen.
