The latest fight of the century, this time between undefeated boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather and UFC star “The Notorious” Conor McGregor, will take place on Saturday night, but what is the real time the main event fight will start?
The Pay-Per-View event will begin with three undercard matches at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (6 p.m. Las Vegas time), so you might as well get your $100 worth of action, particularly considering the Mayweather – McGregor fight might last all of 20 seconds. Here is the undercard:
Cruiserweight: Andrew Tabiti (-280) vs. Steve Cunningham (+200)
Junior lightweight: Gervonta Davis (-3000) vs. Francisco Fonseca (+1100)
Light heavyweight: Badou Jack (-450) vs. Nathan Cleverly (+325)
The main event between Mayweather and McGregor will start at approximately 11:27 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (8:22 Vegas time). In the Mayweather – Manny Pacquiao fight in 2015, many PPV buyers were late to the dance and the fight was slightly delayed in order to get the biggest viewing audience. The National Anthem for Mayweather – Pacquiao started at 11:38 p.m. Eastern Standard and the fight began at 11:47 p.m..
The PPV will likely end around 12:15 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
