Mirror logo Mirror 2/08/2017 Mirror Sport

© USA Today Sports Floyd Mayweather will face Conor McGregor in a £500million (approx. $8.4 AUD) mega-fight in Las Vegas on August 26.

Floyd Mayweather retired in 2015, with an unbeaten record of 49-0, but now he's back with a vengeance as he takes on the UFC lightweight champion in a 12-round clash that has been brewing for more than a year.

The former multi-division boxing world champion opens as the heavy favourite - understandable considering McGregor has never boxed professionally before.

Large sums of money have already been placed on both fighters with odds that can be found on William Hill and SkyBet - one bookie revealed that a single punter has placed £1,800 on a McGregor to win at 11/2, while Mayweather has the pressure of a £5,000 bet on his head.
