Mayweather vs. McGregor

Floyd Mayweather, whose much-hyped fight against UFC star Conor McGregor was officially announced earlier today, will be gunning for his 50th professional boxing victory on August 26.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell is reporting that Mayweather is looking to cash in on the big 50, filing for five trademarks of “50-0” ahead of the money fight against McGregor.

Mayweather, who collected roughly $220 million dollars when he faced long-time rival Manny Pacquiao, is expected to make over $100 million dollars for his scrap against McGregor.

But, according to Rovell, Mayweather’s earnings won’t surpass the Pacquiao fight.
