The fight, aptly dubbed: “The Money Fight,” was billed to be the biggest fight in combat sports history. Highly sensationalized, it pulled up staggering statistics from viewership numbers to winnings for both fighters and promoters. The anticipated fight took place on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena, Nevada. The night ended with Mayweather stopping McGregor in the 10th round and hitting a 50-0 unbeaten boxing record.

A potential fight between undefeated former five-weight world champion Mayweather and McGregor – the UFC’s only ever simultaneous two-division champion – has become the most discussed topic in combat sports, but up until now has amounted to little more than speculation

Alongside the snap taken at a sun-soaked airfield the 49-0 fighter wrote on Instagram: “#AirMayweather 1 & #AirMayweather 2 parked back to back.”
The 39-year-old, who reportedly made more than £160 million for his fight against Manny Pacquiao in May 2015, is more famous for his fleet of cars

“I am just months away from opening up my very own strip club in Las Vegas, Nevada called @GirlCollection,” he posted on his Instagram page.
Mayweather is worth an estimated $650 million

The 39-year-old, who walked away from boxing with a perfect 49-0 record after out-pointing Andre Berto eight months ago, was ringside as a promoter of Badou Jack’s WBC super-middleweight world title fight with Lucian Bute in Washington DC

“I can’t believe they [Ring Magazine] got Andre Ward ranked number 4 in the pound-for-pound list. Even though the guy that’s ranked number 1 pound-for-pound right now [Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez], you know, you can’t argue about that, but without Andre Ward losing a fight, he has to be number 2. I mean, he wins his fights not in good fashion, but in great fashion, and they have him at number 4?

Though the scheduled 12-round bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena has failed to capture the public’s imagination with heavy underdog Berto having lost three of his last six contests, but Mayweather insisted that entertainment would be a priority on the night.
