Mayweather has come out of retirement for the match, likely to be the biggest, glitziest non-title fight in history.

It certainly has captured the general public's interest.

His experience is what makes him a very different operator to the younger, lighter version that Floyd Mayweather outpointed in 2013.

"I was able to pick up some things but you can't really compare a sparring session to a fight".

Last week, though, the relationship went sour after photos were posted online that irked Malignaggi to the point that he chose to leave McGregor's camp. This has been the consensus opinion among boxing fans. With this megafight set to take place only three weeks after the Mayweather/McGregor superfight, the pay-per-view buys for GGG and Alvarez will surely take a hit.

Malignaggi said he didn't do well during the sparring session on July 20 because his conditioning was bad. Malignaggi claims that he had actually been shoved to the canvas.

Malignaggi didn't like being used by McGregor as a tool to make the Irishman look better.

This factor, of course, could play a part.

Aldo doesn't think it will ever happen because he said he suspects McGregor, 29, will leave fighting after taking home an expected purse that will exceed $100 million from the Mayweather bout.

On getting disrespected by McGregor: "It's something that I didn't really ask for". No wonder why he's feeling less than happy with the McGregor camp.

"At this point I'm waiting for Ashton Kutcher to walk into the dressing rooms and tell me I got Punk'd because I thought it was a joke". However, McGregor better be ready on August 26 because Mayweather is not going to sit back and watch him showboat.

The rules to boxing, adapting along the way as the sport slowly evolved into what we recognize today, should have prevented Mayweather vs. McGregor altogether, putting a firm halt on a money-grabbing, albeit highly desired contest.

McGregor explained: "He stayed in there - you've got to give him respect for that". "But one thing for sure, because of the styles, it's going to be a great fight".

"I could see that even in the half shape that I was in, I was starting to get the better of him by Tuesday". If it was my opponent doing that - I'm friends with Conor - but I wouldn't like it if my opponent was doing that. However, Mayweather is a retired boxer coming back for one last mega-crossover event. Here's a guy who came into the McGregor camp with the sole intention of helping him prepare for the biggest fight of his career. It's boxing versus the UFC. "We took a picture in the ring".
