Full list: Where to watch Mayweather vs McGregor boxing fight in Perth

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC champion Conor McGregor will face off in the boxing ring.
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC champion Conor McGregor will face off in the boxing ring.

THERE’S no denying the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor circus is a serious crowd-pulling force.

Or is it more of a farce than a force?

Critics say yes, diehard fans couldn’t care less.

Such is the fever around the fight, many Perth pubs are opening early at 9am on the Sunday of the event.

It’s a cross-discipline showdown the scale of which hasn’t been seen since Muhammad Ali took on Japanese wrestler Antonio Inoki in a bizarre mixed-rules bout in 1976.

Ali nearly needed his leg amputated after a barrage of kicks to the shin that night.

But there’ll be no weird hybrid rules this time around; it’s straight-up boxing between Mayweather and McGregor.

Can the UFC’s biggest male drawcard pull off the unthinkable and hand the world’s most famous boxer the only defeat of his glistening career?

It’s the lure of a famous upset that has Perth venues banking on huge crowds for the telecast of the August 26 Las Vegas lashing.

“The Money Fight” is expected to begin in WA somewhere around the middle of the day on Sunday, August 27 given the 15-hour time difference.
