Conor McGregor Is '100 Percent Positive' He Beats Floyd Mayweather


"It's official", Mayweather said on Instagram next to a video poster of both fighters.

After months of insults and big talk on social media, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor will finally bring their feud to the ring. He also included photos of the pair. "Negotiations went smooth. Floyd is surrounded by some smart people, and we got this thing done".

Though Las Vegas oddsmakers have made Mayweather a heavy 10-1 favourite, the thought of the fight has excited many in the MMA world. Mayweather earned $250 million (B8.47 billion) for his fight against Pacquiao.

White said the key to finalising the fight was luring Mayweather out of his 23-month retirement.

Mayweather, who retired in September 2015 after winning all 49 of his pro fights, will face the Irish UFC superstar at the MGM Grand arena.

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (APC) Reaches New 52-Week High
After $2.16 actual earnings per share reported by 3M Co for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 12.96% EPS growth. The oil and gas development company reported ($0.60) EPS for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of ($0.26) by $0.34.


McGregor, a two-division UFC champ, applied for his boxing license in Nevada recently and would have to adjust to a boxing-only fight.

"He is absolutely, 100% positive he will win this fight".

Although no major titles are on the line and Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) is an astronomical favorite, the fight offers both combatants an opportunity to make huge money.

Showtime will carry this blockbuster pay-per-view event.

"As we've already seen this evening, Mayweather vs. McGregor has generated buzz that reaches far beyond that of the considerable boxing and MMA audience".

Decreases Stake in Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY)
The share price has moved forward from its 20 days moving average 2.48% and positively from its 50 days moving average 1.25%. Analysts, on average, seem bullish as they suggest SBUX is worth $5.62 more, giving a target price of $66.52 a share.


But the trash-talking Irishman has a dedicated fan base and knows how to sell tickets.

In his last fight, McGregor won the lightweight title from Alvarez in November 2015 in UFC's first Madison Square Garden card.

"As with every Mayweather and McGregor fight part of the appeal is the spectacle and outsize personalities who are participating in it", Espinoza said.

McGregor received a California boxing licence previous year but is still waiting for his Nevada boxing licence application to be approved.
