Well, it's finally upon us.

This Saturday, Conor McGregor steps out of his comfort zone in ways only he knows how to.

For the first time as a professional, he'll swap the octagon for the boxing ring, as he aims to put a blemish on what has already been the perfect career for the 49-fight undefeated Floyd Mayweather.

The fight has been in the works for the bones of two years, with many thinking it was all just a hype and wasn't actually going to happen.


Well, here we are, and let's have a run down of everything you need to know ahead of the bout:

Who: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor

Where: T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

When: Saturday 26th of August

Such as time-zones and what have you, Irish viewers who are unfortunate enough not to be in Vegas will be watching it in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

It's not 100% certain what time the bout will begin, so our advice would be to set the alarms for around 4am, although it's likely that the fighters won't be in the ring sometime after 5am.

How: There are a number of options to view what is being billed as a once-in-a-lifetime bout.

Sky Sports Box Office have been given the Pay-Per-View rights to the fight, and it will cost €24.95 to purchase, and it includes a rather decent undercard.

Elsewhere, Vue Cinema in Liffey Valley will be showing the fight, with the doors opening at 11:45pm. Tickets and all other info can be found here.
