Floyd Mayweather files for '50-0′ trademarks before Conor McGregor fight

Author

19 June, 2017

The economic expectations have been set so high because intense public demand for Mayweather-McGregor transformed it from a dismissed mismatch to a reality that'll take place 10 weeks from Saturday night.

While all of the rumors were swirling about his potential comeback for a fight, whether it would be against McGregor or not, he was filing trademarks with the number "50" left and right, just in case.

"He wants to fight twice this year", White said during an appearance on ESPN's SportsCenter when asked if he believes McGregor will return to the UFC.

Mayweather, 40, retired in 2015 with an unblemished 49-0 professional boxing record while boastful Irishman McGregor, 28, is the UFC's lightweight champion.

The relentless reaction Leonard Ellerbe has received from fans since the Mayweather-McGregor drama began late previous year made the Mayweather Promotions CEO realize just how huge the event could become.

UFC President Dana White revealed the fight would be at the boxing junior middleweight weight limit of 154 pounds. Ellerbe acknowledged Wednesday night that income made by Mayweather-McGregor could rival revenue streams from Mayweather-Pacquiao.

Mayweather will come off a two-year retirement in a bout that McGregor has been pushing for almost that long.

Both men are expected to receive in excess of $100 million for the historic fight, but the terms of the deal have not yet been divulged. The upcoming fight will give him an opportunity to take the record to flawless 50-0, as the bout will be a professional boxing match sanctioned by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

If McGregor pulls that off, it would rank among the greatest boxing upsets of all time.

Mayweather is widely regarded as one of the best defensive fighters ever, and prides himself on his ability to evade punishment with his skillful movement about the ring while making adjustments against opponents on the fly.
