It’s being dubbed ‘The Money Fight’ (fitting really, as both fighters are set to earn a bucket load of cash from it). Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather will face UFC champion Conor McGregor on August 27, 2017 (Dubai time). Let’s face it – you probably want to watch it even if you don’t like boxing. Even if the fight sucks, the trash-talk is going to be on point.

The good news is that the Las Vegas evening fight will start at breakfast in Dubai, meaning that you can watch it over a full English before work. Make sure you don’t miss a swing with our ShortList of venues screening The Money Fight.
