Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have agreed to use the children’s boxing game Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em instead of actually fighting in their upcoming match.
There has been a lot of hype around the match between the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion and ESPN’s “greatest boxer of the last 25 years”, not least because both fighters stand to gain over $100m from the match.
“We want to give the paying audience what they want,” said Mayweather.
“And they clearly want to see us go head to head at Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em.”
“I’m gonna tear his fuckin’ head off,” said McGregor.
“His thumbs aren’t going to know what hit them!”
