Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor undercard announced

Esther Lin, Showtime

The Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor undercard was announced Thursday.

Showtime and Mayweather Promotions announced three bouts for the Aug. 26 boxing event from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, including a pair of title fights.

In a WBA light heavyweight title match, champion Nathan Cleverly (30-13, 16 KOs) will defend his belt against Badou Jack (21-12, 12 KOs). Jack, a native of Sweden who competed for Gambia in the 2008 Olympics, is a former WBC super middleweight champion who is stepping up in weight.

"This is a fight I have wanted ever since Badou Jack moved to light heavyweight and I'm delighted to fight in Vegas on an event like this,” said Cleverly.

“To be a part of this event and fighting on this card is historic,” Jack said. “Nothing beats it. I’m excited to get back in the ring. I’m getting ready to take that belt, and win a title in my second weight class.”

In an IBF junior lightweight title matchup, undefeated Gervonta Davis (18-0, 17 KOs,) puts his belt on the line against Costa Rica’s Francisco Fonseca (19-0-1, 13 KOs).

Also announced was a 10-round cruiserweight bout between Chicago’s Andrew Tabiti (14-0, 12 KOs) and Philadelphia’s Steve Cunningham (29-8-1, 13 KOs).
