Here’s the deal. Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s record is 49-0 and Conor McGregor, 29, well his is…Let’s just say it’s his first professional boxing match.

Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe posed the ultimate question during their the third of four press conferences at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, why anyone should believe the UFC star, Conor McGregor, has a chance to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr., 40.

“This [-ish] is big. It’s bigger than anybody in this room. The mainstream world wants to see this, Ellerbe says.

“You can’t get mad at us,” he said. “We figured this shit out. We figured out a way to take this to another level. We did this! It’s called entertainment. We’re in a society now that it’s what people want to see. People are intrigued about the Kardashians!”

Doug E. Fresh warmed up the crowd of 13,165.

They hit the ring for their fight on Aug. 26.
