Canelo vs Golovkin Live Stream Full Fight Online

CANELO Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin stepped on the scales at the MGM Grand Garden Arena then came face-to-face for the cameras on Friday (US time), one day before they meet in one of the most anticipated fights in years.

Three-belt champion Golovkin wore his black shorts and smiled as he stepped on the scale first weighing the 160-pound (72.5 kg) middleweight limit for Saturday’s world title fight against Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena.

Alvarez was up next, climbing onto the scales in his blue shorts and registering the same 160 pounds for a bout that has all the makings of a fight of the year.

Kazakhstan’s Golovkin is putting his World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation, belts on the line but to the uninitiated on it could have seemed more like Alvarez was the champ.

Alvarez drew louder cheers from the pro-Mexican crowd, stepped on the scale last and made Golovkin wait several minutes on stage before making his initial appearance, which was preceded by a video tribute on the jumbotron screen.

The fighters, who once sparred together at Golovkin’s gym in Big Bear, California, then posed amicably during their staredown in front of a crowd of 9,400. CANELO VS GOLOVKIN

That has been consistent with the buildup to the sold-out fight, which has lacked the vitriolic trash talk typical of world title fights.

Alvarez, who was the more stonefaced of the two, sent the crowd into a frenzy as he shadowboxed briefly at the front of the stage — his signature weigh-in move. Foxsports

Hundreds of people stood on line for hours outside the Grand Garden for the chance to see the weigh-in, chanting and signing along with a neatly-attired Mariachi band.

For many, it represented their only hope of seeing either fighter in person as the bout has been sold out for weeks.



What is the prize money for Mcgregor vs Mayweather and how much of the purse will each winner get?

We all know that it gonna big event on earth on Telegraph Sport

Boxing purists may be shying away from the thought of Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor, but you can expect the money to be rolling in over the next couple of months.

‘Money’ Mayweather has been more than happy to flaunt his wealth over the years, posting pictures of wads of cash on show.

His bout with Manny Pacquiao in May 2015 broke pay-per-view records, bringing in more than 4.5million purchases at an average of $99 cost. TV revenue alone is thought to have passed $400million (£309million).

Mayweather is believed to have earned at least $180million from that fight alone.

So what for Mayweather-McGregor? Will it break records, and what can each fighter earn?
What is the estimated fight purse?

The figure depends on a number of different variables, including pay-per-view sales, pricing structure in the UK, ticket sales and more.

If PPV revenue stays in line with the Mayweather-Pacquiao bout, the fight purse is likely to be worth some $300million, with total revenues at $500million (£385million).
What will the split be?

A confidentiality agreement means the exact split will not be revealed. However, reports suggest the difference could be 70-30 or 75-25 in Mayweather’s favour.
What is the fight expected to make in pay-per-view terms?

It depends on whether the US broadcasters charge viewers up to $100 once again. If they do, then $400million and more is not out of the question, especially if Conor McGregor’s trash talking ramps up. Additionally, the potential audience could be even wider still with McGregor attracting a huge following.

A TV deal with a UK broadcaster has not yet been struck, with negotiations ongoing.

How much money will the tickets make?

The fight will take place in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which has a capacity of around 20,000. Tickets are selling at a premium, with ringside seats going for between £18,000 and £30,000. Even those in the upper tier of the arena are going for more than £2,000.

Ticket receipts for Mayweather-Pacquiao totaled around £70million. With just under two months to go until the fight, interest is expected to grow further and is likely to get close to the figure of the 2015 bout.
What are the estimated earnings for each fighter?

With the estimated revenues and splits in mind, $230 million for Mayweather and $70million for McGregor is not out of the question. Pay-per-view sales could change that figure.



Floyd Mayweather $50 Mil Offer to McGregor

In a article on TMZ we got this Floyd Mayweather has a $50 MILLION offer out to Conor McGregor, sources tell TMZ Sports … but it’s going to take a lot more to seal the deal.

We’re told Floyd is proposing a New Year’s Eve fight in Vegas and Conor is game. We’re told Floyd’s $50 million offer is far less than half the amount the fight would rake in … and therein lies the rub.

Floyd has been talking to the wrong guy, because Conor can’t ink the deal. It’s all about convincing Dana White, and there’s just no way White would accept such a lopsided deal. Fact is … in 3 critical Pay-Per-View markets — Europe, Australia and Canada — Conor is a bigger star than Floyd.

Floyd’s last fight produced disappointing PPV numbers, and Conor’s star has never been brighter. Even his loss to Nate Diaz was epic … the fight was great and it did not disappoint fans.

Sources connected with Floyd tell us … the champ has not approached Dana, at least not yet.

Open your wallet Mayweather … it could happen.




Dana White: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather

UFC president Dana White doesn’t see Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather fighting any time soon.

Even if the two sides genuinely wanted it to happen, White said, it’s unlikely they ever could agree to terms. Just look at how long Mayweather took to negotiate the biggest fight of his boxing career, White added.

“Let me put it to you this way,” White said on ESPN’s Russillo & Kanell on Thursday. “Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather are in the same sport. It took how long for those two to fight? Now imagine how hard it would be to get (Mayweather and McGregor) to fight. They’re not in the same sport.”
White, of course, was referencing the richest boxing match in history that occurred last year between Mayweather and Pacquiao. The two met after years of going back and forth in negotiations, pulling off a fight that generated more than $400 million in pay-per-view revenue and $72.2 million in ticket sales. Mayweather won via unanimous decision.

“Everybody always knew the money would be there for that Pacquiao fight,” White said. “The money they made in this last fight pales in comparison to what they would have made if they fought in their prime. If those guys actually fought in their prime, when they were both on top of their game, it would have been even bigger. But that’s the problem with boxing, man.”

A fantasy fight between McGregor, the UFC’s featherweight champion, and Mayweather would certainly draw a ton of money — and Mayweather fueled speculation it could actually happen, calling it “possible.” McGregor, who was recently pulled from UFC 200 because he refused to interrupt his camp for promoting duties, has also had fun with the headlines, sharing a photo on social media of the two squaring off.

White doesn’t see it coming to fruition — but ever the opportunist when it comes to promoting a big fight, he has said he wouldn’t decline a call from Mayweather.

“Is this thing going to be MMA or boxing rules?” White said. “Who’s getting the lion’s share of the money? This and that. It’s impossible. But like I’ve said, ‘Floyd, you want to fight Conor, call me.’ “
