After months of hype, numerous press conferences and a catalogue of McGregor one-liners that are sure to be repeated in Irish pubs for years to come, one of most highly anticipated fights in boxing history took place in the early hours of this morning.

Boxing and MMA fans across the globe joined forces to revel is the mega money sporting event that saw an undefeated Floyd Mayweather take on Conor McGregor in the ring.

Although Mayweather cemented his legacy as on of the greatest boxers of all time after winning by TKO in the 10th round, Twitter praised both fighters for the mutual respect they showed after the stoppage, and though some fans were left disappointed by the final result, it seems like everyone enjoyed watching.

So, the guys over at Bad Lip Reading are famous for putting hilarious spins on some of the best moments in popular culture and they have truly knocked it out of the park with their latest instalment.

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather made headlines around the world this week as they battled in out in a number press conferences ahead of their mega money fight next month.

From Conor's pinstripe suit, to accusations of racism, their meetings have been filled with a host of bizarre and often cringe-worthy moments.

And after a week full of nonsensical ramblings from the pair, a parody video has emerged to breath new life into the situation.

Take a look.

The video posted on the Bad Lip Reading Youtube channel racked up almost three million views in just 48 hours – and it's not hard to see way.

Using footage from the Toronto press conference, the BLR crew did what they do best and dubbed over the clip with complete an utter gibberish – which to be honest, probably wasn't too far from the original conversation.

We don't reckon either party will be too impressed, but hey, at least we got a laugh out of it.

MMA icon Conor McGregor is set to fight Floyd Mayweather in a boxing showdown of epic proportions.

Former boxing world champion Floyd Mayweather confirmed the fight via Twitter last night, uploading a video giving details of the upcoming boxing match. 

The fight is scheduled for August 26 this year, and will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

It will be a standard, 12-round boxing match with 10-ounce gloves

Conor McGregor also took to Twitter to confirm the fight, but in typical cheeky McGregor fashion. 

The national treasure uploaded a side-by-side snap of himself and Mayweather's father, with the caption 'THE FIGHT IS ON,' which fans are speculation is a dig at Mayweather's age.

This dig comes two years after  McGregor told Esquire that he would 'kill' Mayweather in 'less than 30 seconds.' 

It is reported that both fighters stand to earn $100 million from the fight.

To be fair, for 100 million dollars, even we would try to fight McGregor…

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather's fight has been highly anticipated all year now.

However, nobody really knows if it's going to go ahead or not.

There has been varying opinions from both sides, and with the UFC getting involved too, nobody really knows who to listen to anymore.

Conor's coach, John Kavanagh, seemed to clear a few things up this morning, with many news outlets reporting that Conor and Floyd are going to announce their big-money fight next week.

Coach Kavanagh wrote on Twitter this morning: "Finally the news is confirmed. Conor v Mayweather. Let's do this!"

But, it's April Fool's Day… so, do we believe him?

A source told the Irish Sun, "Both sides have agreed a fee, date and venue.  It's all ready to be announced early next week."

We'll let the day pass before we believe anything!

Boxer Floyd Mayweather has revealed that a boxing fight with Irish UFC fighter Conor McGregor looks like it might happen – and soon.

"It’s really not a rumour. The fight may happen. We really don’t know as of right now, but do I think the fight will happen? Absolutely,” Floyd said.

“He is no pushover. One thing about Conor McGregor, he is no pushover. He fell short in his last bout but a true champion can always bounce back so that’s a guy that I can’t overlook,” he told the presenter.

“We haven’t picked a venue, we haven’t talked about money yet. I am going to get $100m. Every time I go out that’s my number. Every time I go out and get inside that squared circle, it’s $100m or better.”

Would you like to see this happen?

We love our Irish fighter, Conor McGregor, but it seems he's not too popular with one famous champion.

In an interview with FightHype.com, Floyd Mayweather said that UFC champion, Conor, is brash and arrogant.

He also said because Mr McGregor is white, he gets no heat for all the rude and irrational things he says. 

"He talks a lot trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant. So biased," said Floyd. 

He didn't stop there though, telling the website that he's annoyed because it all comes down to race.

"I ain't racist… "I ain't racist at all, but I'm telling you racism still exists," he finished.
