What weight will the fight be  fought at?

The clash will be fought at 154lbs – light middleweight.

Mayweather, who is coming out of retirement for the fight, has accused McGregor of being a full 10 pounds over the 154lbs limit.

He has added that the fight will not be called off even if McGregor fails to make the weight.

Mayweather said: “Conor McGregor is extremely heavy right now.

“I think he’s 164 so he’s still got 10 pounds to go.

“I get that extra money if you can’t make the weight.

“Get those extra millions ready. UFC get those extra millions ready.

“You got to get that weight down like a true champion. A true champion is disciplined and very responsible but we’ll see.

“I don’t think he’s going to make the weight.”

What happens if McGregor misses the weight?

Should Conor McGregor come in over the weight, he will get a fine taken out of his fight purse.

Because there’s no belt on the line, all that McGregor has to lose is a fine, not the chance to win a title.

McGregor’s fine, however, would go straight to Mayweather’s pocket, as the fighter who fails to make the weight has to pay his opponent.

Where can I buy tickets for the weigh-in?
