Contrary to rumours and popular perception, there were no more MMA fighters on the under card of the Mayweather vs Mcgregor super fight scheduled for August 26th (27th AEST) and the rest of the fighters were pure boxers in boxing bouts.
Mayweather vs. McGregor Main Card (on PPV)
Champ Gervonta Davis (18-0) vs. Francisco Fonseca (19-0-1) – for IBF junior lightweight world Championship
Champ Nathan Cleverly (30-3) vs. Badou Jack (21-1-2) – for WBA light heavyweight World Championship
Andrew Tabiti(14-0) vs. Steve Cunningham (29-8-1) – for vacant USBA cruiserweight title
Prelim Card (on FOX)
Shawn Porter (27-2-1) vs. Thomas Dulorme (24-2)
Juan Heraldez (12-0) vs. Jose Miguel Borrego (13-0)
Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, said in a statement “Gervonta Davis is nothing short of pure boxing talent with dynamite power.
Former super middleweight world champion Badou Jack is making his light heavyweight debut, and looking to take the title away from a tough and experienced Nathan Cleverly.
But first, Andrew ‘The Beast’ Tabiti will open the pay-per-view telecast with what I expect to be a magnificent performance.”
