Davis, will make the second defense of his IBF Junior Lightweight World Championship.

Jack added: 'I'm thankful for this opportunity and I'm excited about getting another shot at a world title.

The pay-per-view telecast will open with undefeated rising cruiserweight contender Andrew "The Beast" Tabiti taking on two-time world champion Steve "U.S.S".

Floyd Mayweather's business advisor has revealed that an invitation is out there for President Donald Trump to be at Mayweather's bout with Conor McGregor.

Which begs the question: Should the fight begin and Mayweather sense the odds were correct and McGregor's skills in the ring are nowhere near able to compete, will the unbeaten boxer try to end things immediately or allow them to go on for a while so as to appease those watching? This diverse card is an epic, global affair stacked with talent.

It comes the day after Floyd Mayweather's own workout at the Mayweather Boxing club, where he looked sharp on the speed bag before dealing the big blows to the heavy bags.

"When it's something of this magnitude, this is not just a fight", Mayweather said.

Intensity 4 was felt in Manila; Calapan, Mindoro; Subic, Zambales; Rosario, Cavite; and Sablayan, Oriental Mindoro. A magnitude 6.2 quake struck the Philippines southwest of Manila on August 11, 2017.

"I know I'm going to see a fighter, a warrior", Mayweather said. "We're excited to watch them compete in tough, competitive matchups on this global stage".

Meanwhile, Bennett also shed some light on why the fight was approved despite McGregor's inexperience.

In accordance with the rules and regulations of the Association of Boxing Commissions, 10-ounce gloves are supposed to be used in bouts above 147 pounds, but the NSAC is willing to make an exception if both sides explain why they want to use smaller gloves in the fight.

Coverage begins 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT From UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas.

In addition, consumers on the SHOWTIME PPV website and application will have access to a special free trial for the SHOWTIME standalone streaming service and CBS All Access.

McGregor and Mayweather face off in Las Vegas on August 26 when UFC meets boxing.
