Fight fans have been buzzing for months. We have heard the insults and one liners at the press conferences. We have seen the stare downs, threats and predictions. Now let’s see the menu and let’s see what eateries going to be carrying this fight.
In case you have been living under a rock, let’s get you up to speed. This Saturday, in one of the
more memorable fight weekends in memory, we have 2017’s SUPERFIGHT between an over the hill boxing legend and an MMA fighter in his prime. This match is in a boxing ring, boxing rules.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather, the old champ, takes on the pride of Ireland, UFC star Connor McGregor.

–Mayweather is 40 years old, McGregor is 29.
–Mayweather is at least a 4-1 favorite to win the fight, which is being held in Las Vegas.
–The boxers are using 8oz gloves, which is almost unheard of at their weight class. Usually the gloves are 10 ounces. This means the boxers will feel the punches more, since there is less cushion on the hands. It preaches to the dislike these participants have for each other.
