However, that means McGregor vs. Mayweather would need to take in nearly double the $600 million the American's fight with Manny Pacquiao made - dubbed "the richest night in sports history". Despite the jaw-dropping numbers, the men behind the McGregor-Mayweather super fight are confident the record can be broken.

Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, expects the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor fight to break records.

When Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor head to Las Vegas for their much-anticipated boxing pay-per-view bout on August 26, the expectations for a circus atmosphere and straight cash for the participants will be large.

The Mayweather-McGregor fight will take place in a boxing ring and be governed by boxing rules.

Oh, and the capacity of the T-Mobile Arena is 20,000.

Stephen Espinoza, the head of Showtime Sports, who will air the money spinning fight, said, "This is really an unprecedented event".

"If McGregor were to go out and get some boxing matches, I don't see ..."

The fight has already been tipped as potentially the most lucrative match-up in the history of sport.

I want to see this fight.

"Oh yeah, that will not happen", White said.

Former multi-division world champion Mayweather fought and defeated wrestling giant Big Show in a No Disqualification wrestling match at Wrestlemania XXIV in March 2008. I think that fight was so big and everybody was going so insane about it, that a lot of mistakes were made that cost them money, which is hilarious to say because that's the biggest money-making fight of all time. GGG is going to fight Canelo.

"What we know is that Conor McGregor is a huge hitter and he's been knocking people out for the last few years", Carr said.

Mayweather is unbeaten in 49 fights, while the light-middleweight showdown will be a first for McGregor. Mayweather is arguably the greatest boxer of all time going against McGregor, who has such a strong belief in himself that it seems he manifests his victories as if he has some sort of magical power.
