Floyd Mayweather boasts a flawless professional record of 49-0; in 2016 he was ranked by ESPN as the greatest pound for pound boxer of the past 25 years. Conor McGregor, however is a different story. He has never been involved in a professional boxing match and is ranked the outsider with bookmakers worldwide. Their fight has been panned by a numerous of boxing personalities. Three-time super-middleweight world champion Carl Froch described it as “a bit of a pantomime”. Undeafted world champion Gennady Golovkin has said its this week’s “circus show”.

Mayweather and the WWE

Triple H has told media and critics that the fight guarantees excitement, and has even extended am invitation to the two men to appear in WWE. Triple H believes there is an interest level between the two men.

“Can a world class boxer, probably the best ever, can he stand in the ring with a MMA guy and can that MMA guy bring his striking skills up to the level of someone, like say, a Floyd Mayweather? The one thing that it will be, its going to be entertaining. One thing Floyd Mayweather is entertaining, and so is Conor McGregor.”

Triple H invited them to Monday Night RAW because there is no bigger platform that they cant have to show the world and tell the world, who they are and why they are the man. Mayweather is no stranger to professional wrestling, where he stole the show at No Way Out in March 2008.

Mayweather’s WWE Action

The American was invited into the ring to square off against the Big Show, only to throw a real combination which left the giant with a broken nose. The pair would square off again at WrestleMania XXIV, with Mayweather again emerging victorious. Triple H has also revealed that Mayweather is a “huge fan” of the promotion; that he trained the boxer for his showdown with the Big Show.  When Mayweather entered the ring and faced off with the Big Show, Triple H said that was a big highlight for him, since he trained Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather got into the ring of WWE’s superbowl called WrestleMania because he is a huge fan, and has huge respect for what we do; and stayed in touch over the years with Triple H and got the honor of being thrown out of the ring by the Big Show.

Triple H says to Sports Entertainment:

“At the level of the athlete that he is at, for Floyd to agree to that kind of stuff was amazing for us, but he is a huge fan and couldn’t have been more engaged in what we do. So the Mayweather vs McGregor fight, people can say what they want, but it will be entertaining.”

We know now that Floyd Mayweather will more then likely accept the RAW Invite from Triple H, but will Conor McGregor except the RAW Invite?

I guess we will have to just sit back and see who accepts the Raw Invite.
