Leading up to the massive Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing fight becoming official, there were a lot of rumors surrounding the fight and who was in charge of making it happen.

Mayweather, who retired in 2015 with an unbeaten record of 49-0, and UFC lightweight champion McGregor will clash in a 12-round fight in Las Vegas on August 26 after teasing the event for almost a year.

The one-time world heavyweight champion said the combination of Mayweather's boxing experience and hand speed would be too much to handle for McGregor, who has made him name as a mixed martial arts fighter.

"It's ridiculous to me", Lewis told United States sports broadcaster ESPN.

"I can't take it serious", Lewis said.

McGregor did just recently ink a new endorsement deal with Beats by Dre as he joins a roster of athletes that includes LeBron James and Kevin Durant as well.

"I think he's gonna put him away".

Who will win the August 26th date?

The Nevada State Athletic Commission have given their blessing to the contest being record as a 50th win for Mayweather, although McGregor will be banking on sealing the biggest upset the sport has ever witnessed. "I love Bruce Lee and the other disciplines and when he fought against other fighters, you wanted to see the differences, so I can see the appeal", Lewis said.
