Comme nous l’apprenait RDS hier soir, le combat tant attendu entre Floyd Mayweather et Conor McGregor aura finalement lieu le samedi 26 août prochain.

Les deux athlètes ont officialisé la tenue du duel sur les médias sociaux.

Les deux hommes se lançaient des flèches depuis un bon bout de temps sur le web et ils auront finalement l’occasion de montrer ce dont ils sont capables dans un ring de boxe. Voici quelques-uns des jabs que se sont envoyés Mayweather et McGregor au cours des derniers mois :

Myself and @sbgcharlestown have been working together on unrestricted, unarmed fighting, since we are kids. Not much will change when I fight under the famed, yet very limited, Queensbury rules. No disrespect to single discipline fighters, from boxing to kicking to grappling, just know that understanding one style of fighting is simply not enough. You are lying to yourself. You are easily dismantled in a true fight. A fight with no rules to protect you. In a straight fight, you do not possess enough tools to keep you alive. You will be dismantled and killed. Like the late, great Bruce Lee once said: « When you are talking about fighting, as it is, with no rules, well then baby, you’d better train every part of your body » Une publication partagée par Conor McGregor Official (@thenotoriousmma) le

Here is a reply video I sent one of my protégés who was seeking advice on some boxing only pad work footage they sent me. I believe you will like it. The focus has been solely boxing lately but make no mistakes, the kicking and grappling aspects, and everything else got to do with unlimited free fighting, is still very much present in my thoughts. Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something. But whatever that’s another conversation. I like to build fighters and watch their progression. I have built many to this date, and all unintentionally. One is fighting in the UFC main event this weekend. When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.

Et maintenant, voici les meilleures réactions des internautes suite à l’annonce du combat :

En tout cas, une chose est sûre : il sera très intéressant de suivre ce que les deux pugilistes auront à se dire lors des prochaines semaines. Probablement plus que le combat.
