What does Mayweather-McGregor mean for boxing and MMA?

Well, we’ve really gone and done it now, and we’re past the point of no return. This fight is actually happening, and in one way or another, we are probably all to blame.

Floyd Mayweather, one of the greatest professional boxers of all time, will attempt to reach the monumental achievement of 50-0 — against Conor McGregor, who will be boxing professionally for the very first time.

The premise is silly, because whoever fights in his combat sports discipline — in this case, Mayweather — is obviously the mega-favorite.

But whether you like the fight or not, the main question is what impact it will have in boxing and MMA. Our boxing writer, Dan Rafael, and MMA writer, Brett Okamoto, debate what this fight will do for the respective sports.
