So one of the most hyped fights in boxing will be happening on Sunday in America.
The sheer number of bets still favors challenger McGregor, but the big money seems to be backing Mayweather. The novelty of the matchup, along with the fiery personalities involved, could make this one of the most-bought PPV fights of all time, even with the obvious mismatch on paper.
There's not a lot to analyze about a fight that is as much spectacle as it is competition.
"It's a good fight, it's a money fight". He's also an inch taller and has two inches longer in reach. The victor will also walk away with a high bounty.
Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs), about a 6-1 favorite, has not fought in almost two years since his September 2015 retirement, a break that Leonard is intimately familiar with.
DStv has announced that they will be showing the match on their SuperSport 2 and SS Maximo 1 channels.
"He's a professional boxer, and McGregor is not a professional boxer, there's nothing more to it", he said.
Saturday's fight is expected to start at about 9 p.m. on Showtime pay-per-view. There is also the small matter of the Nathan Cleverly-Badou Jack who will be fighting on the undercard at the T Mobile Arena on Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Kwese TV didn't manage to make it in Zimbabwe. Others will watch at a public venue like a sports bar. "This is unique in that traditionally we don't air prelims to boxing PPV events". It is going to be a good fight for the first couple of rounds but I see Mayweather getting a stoppage. You'd take (a fight against him) because it's a big name.
After speaking briefly, Mayweather left the stage before his entourages walked slowly towards McGregor's camp, before there was a large melee, with several photographers and journalists finding themselves caught up in the fracas.
What do you think of this Conor McGregor - Chuck Liddell comparison from Dana White? They're going to say Floyd was too old. And if he would lose it would never be a bad thing for MMA, you know.
