Leigh Copson in Boxing 24 Jul 2017

It is being billed as the biggest fight of all-time and Crunch Sports has the complete Tale Of The Tape for Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor on Saturday, August 26.

McGregor has become a mixed martial arts mega-star since signing with the UFC, becoming the first man to hold titles in two different weight classes at the same time, but can he really make history by becoming the first man to beat Mayweather – a former five-weight world champion with a perfect 49-0 record who is considered the greatest fighter of his generation?

The answer to that question will come on August 26, but what we do know right now is that these two men are undoubtedly the biggest stars in their respective sports. They have both smashed PPV records, they have both won world titles and they have both been dominant in their chosen professions. But just how do they stack up against each other? Read on to find out…

Floyd Mayweather’s Biggest Wins


Mayweather v Diego Corrales (January 2001): Mayweather was taking a serious step up in competition when he put his unbeaten record on the line against Diego Corrales. Corrales boasted a perfect 33-0 record, with 27 of those victories coming via knockout, but he was no match for 24-0 ‘Money’ who dominated the contest and stopped his opponent in the 10th round en route to a win that confirmed his place among boxing’s elite. 

Mayweather v Oscar De La Hoya (May 2007):  Mayweather’s stock was soaring by the time he took on the legendary Oscar De La Hoya, but this was undoubtedly his toughest outing to date. ‘Money’ would often leave the ring looking just how he did when he entered it, but on this occasion he took some punishment on his way to a split decision win over the ‘Golden Boy’ – the first time a judge had ever gone against Mayweather.

Mayweather v Ricky Hatton (December 2007): There was no bigger money fight than this one back in 2007, with undefeated British hero Ricky Hatton looking to become the first man to get the better of Mayweather. ‘The Hitman’ took and aggressive approach early on, but ‘Money’ weathered the storm and showed his superiority before knocking out Hatton in round 10.

Mayweather v Shane Mosley (May 2010): If you ever want proof that Mayweather can be caught with a flush punch, this fight will provide the evidence that it can happen. ‘Sugar Shane’ rocked Mayweather with a massive right-hand in the second round of that one and ‘Money’ desperately held onto his opponent’s arm to avoid being dropped. He eventually recovered from that major scare and took control of the fight as Mosley faded.

Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao (May 2015): Fight fans had been clamouring for this fight for years and they finally got it in May 2015. However, it was not the epic they had hoped for. Mayweather showcased his defensive skill set once again as he cruised to a decision win over the Filipino icon.

Conor McGregor’s Biggest Wins


McGregor v Max Holloway (August 2013): This was the first time that McGregor had been taken the distance inside the Octagon – but the Irishman did have a very good reason because he suffered a torn ACL during that fight that sidelined him for several months. ‘The Notorious’ was a convincing winner though, taking the decision over Max Holloway – a man who now holds the UFC featherweight title.

McGregor v Chad Mendes (July 2015): McGregor agreed to face Chad Mendes on short notice after Jose Aldo pulled out of a scheduled fight due to injury, and many were predicting misery for ‘The Notorious’ now that he was stepping inside the Octagon with a wrestler. Mendes did manage to take McGregor to the mat during the first two rounds, but a quick combination and some follow-up strikes ensured the Irishman’s hand was raised.

McGregor v Jose Aldo (December 2015): Having been made to wait for a few more months, fight fans finally got to see McGregor take on Jose Aldo and if they blinked they would have missed it. Just like he predicted, Aldo recklessly lunged forward and ‘The Notorious’ landed a pinpoint left-hook that ended the UFC featherweight title fight with just 13 seconds on the clock.

McGregor v Nate Diaz (August 2016): McGregor’s decision to accept another late change in opponent backfired as he was submitted by Nate Diaz in March 2016, but the Irishman demanded a rematch – at welterweight – in order to right that wrong and he did just that, winning a five-round war on the judges’ scorecards.

McGregor v Eddie Alvarez (November 2016): With the Diaz loss avenged McGregor once again set his sights on making history by becoming a two-weight world champion, and he got his chance when he was scheduled to face lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in the first UFC event at Madison Square Garden. ‘The Notorious’ picked apart Alvarez in the stand-up game and claimed his second UFC title by stopping the American in round two.
