And the 2012 world champion did not even know the sensational news of her first contest until last night when it was announced on TV.
Belfast super-bantamweight Michael Conlan is being lined up for a place on the supporting bill to the clash between Floyd Mayweather and UFC star Conor McGregor on August 26 in Las Vegas. Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao sold a record 4.6 million buys.
Hey, I've blown a hundred bucks on much worse things in life, and since this is a very rare expense for me, I'm diving in - even if it is the biggest sham since Rocky vs. Thunderlips.
"Floyd is the greatest of all time and Conor is the master of our sport", MMA promoter Dana White said.
"Boxing rarely goes the way of conventional wisdom, and part of that could be the result of a guy who's taken some time off and is older".
Though oddsmakers make Mayweather a big favorite, the thought of the fight has excited many in the MMA world. "Wait till they meet face to face for the first time and square off and people see the difference in the size between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather".
"They went smoothly. Floyd Mayweather surrounds himself with smart people and we got the deal done".More news: Kiwis beat British to reach America's Cup challenger finals
Floyd Mayweather fight has been the most anticipated fight since the Mayweather-Pacquiao days - and will continue to be the most anticipated fight until August 26th.
Iole urges fans not to expect a competitive classic, but to simply enjoy the ride. And Mayweather hit McGregor in January about his wealth, saying on Instagram: "Before you ask for $25 million, be worth more than $25 million".

Just like boxing and MMA: 10 points to the victor of the round, 9 points to the loser - 8 if there's a barb worthy of being considered an emotional knockdown. Additionally, there will be some "guest commentators" who will provide mixed martial arts analysis. MMA fighters don't wear shoes as a rule, and padding on the feet is also prohibited.
When Mayweather left boxing in September 2015, the WBC awarded the then Pound for Pound king "Emeritus Champion" status which allows the American an immediate shot at either the 147 or 154 champion upon his return. He is one of the best, if not THE best, play by play combat sports commentator in the whole world right now and he will undoubtedly do a great job calling the epic fight!
While Mayweather has compiled 49 career victories in the ring, only 26 of those have been by knockout.
