In the past two days, both Floyd “Money” Mayweather and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor held open workouts for the media.
Both fighters spent hours working out in front of the media in Las Vegas. Mayweather worked out at his own gym, while McGregor trained at the new UFC Performance Institute.
During their workouts, both fighters spent a lot of time showing off their punching skills on their punching bags. In the video above, you can see a side-by-side comparison of both fighters hitting the bag just two weeks before the meet inside the ring.
McGregor will be competing in his first boxing match as a professional when he fights Mayweather. Despite not having fought in a professional boxing match, McGregor is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world of MMA.
Mayweather will be fighting in his 50th professional bout when he fights McGregor. He is currently undefeated with 49 wins.
Mayweather vs. McGregor will take place Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
