Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will take part in one of the most hyped fights in boxing history in Las Vegas tonight. And RadarOnline.com has lifted the lid on several secrets and scandals surrounding the two motor-mouth athletes before their epic battle – click through the images to find-out more.
Floyd Mayweather, 40, recently threatened to use his lethal fighting skills on a fan during a dispute in Miami, Florida. The world champion went crazy with a man after he asked for a photograph of him and his family at the luxury Fontainebleau Hotel.
The world champion boxer has served time for domestic abuse and battery. A Las Vegas judge jailed him for 90 days in 2011 for beating up his girlfriend in front of their kids. He was arrested in 2010 after she accused him of striking her on the head with his fists and threatening to 'kill her'.
The flashy boxer loves expensive cars – but he lost four of them in a trailer fire in Arizona back in 2015. A customized Jeep, a Bentley and two Rolls Royce cars were destroyed in the blaze.
McGregor, 29, has upset many people in the run-up to the fight by making racial and homophobic slurs at press conferences to promote the mega match. In London he called his opponent 'a fa****' while in New York he dubbed 50 Cent 'a b****'.
The Irish star was raised in the Dublin neighborhood of Crumlin and was training to be a plumber – but he is now worth an astonishing $25 million and is the only UFC fighter to appear on Forbes' prestigious list of top 100 earners in the world.
Despite his image as a trash talker McGregor has one person he can rely on – his girlfriend Dee Devlin. The couple have been together for the past nine years and share a son together. Devlin supported him when he was a penniless plumber training in Ireland.
