Sky Sports Box Office will show the fight between undefeated former world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather and current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor this evening.
The event sees the two worlds of professional boxing and UFC colliding at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will be available to Sky viewers on Sky Sports Box Office for £19.95 in the UK and €24.95 for Republic of Ireland.
Mayweather, who holds a perfect 49-0 fight record and won 12 world titles across five weight divisions, is considered one of the greatest pound for pound fighters boxing has ever seen. He retired in 2015, having successfully defended his WBC, WBA (Super) and The Ring welterweight titles against Andre Berto.
Mixed martial artist Conor McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion and former UFC Featherweight Champion, has never taken part in a professional boxing match, but switches sports at the peak of his powers and will be determined to cause an upset.
Having begun his UFC career in 2012, McGregor has competed at featherweight, lightweight and welterweight, and became the first UFC fighter to hold two titles at two different weights simultaneously.
