The 12-round, 154-pound boxing match will go down on August 26 in the T-Mobile Arena in glimmering Las Vegas, Nevada.
Now that this massive fight is official, many top MMA fighters are hoping to earn a place on the undercard – and most of them have specific opponents in mind for these prospective undercard bouts. UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic wants boxing champ Anthony Joshua. UFC featherweight Cub Swanson wants Paul Malignaggi. Former UFC flyweight title challenger Wilson Reis wants Mayweather protege Gervonta Davis. Then there’s Jimi Manuwa’s possible boxing match with David Haye, and Anderson Silva’s long discussed showdown with Roy Jones Jr. The list goes on and on.
