This’ll be a SHORT fight!

IT’S THE HALF-CLASH OF THE CEN­TURY! MINI FLOYD TAKES ON DWARF MAC IN RI­VAL BOUT

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AC­TION Man’s ac­tual name is Matthew Exler. BIG FIGHT: Floyd ( is fave to beat Conor, but it’s a toss up who’ll win the titchy bat­tlers’ bout A MINI Conor McGre­gor will take on a pint-sized Floyd May­weather in a clash of the tiny ti­tans be­fore the main event.

The two dop­pel­gangers’ clash in Las Ve­gas on Au­gust 25th will whet pun­ters’ ap­petites for the full-sized fight the fol­low­ing evening.

Shor­tarse May­weather pre­vi­ously took on the dwarf Manny Pacquiao when the bout be­tween their big­ger name­sakes took place in 2015.

The lit­tle boxers didn’t quite make it to the ring in the MGM ho­tel in Ve­gas but they did bat­tle it out in the lobby of the fa­mous ho­tel.

May­weather’s mini-me and Pacquiao’s dwarf dou­ble went through three rounds at Beacher’s Mad­house, and tick­ets for the half-sized event cost a knock­out £1,500. hit in the Philip­pines, with fight­ers re­ceiv­ing around £5 a night for their ef­forts in the ring, but this pair will be hop­ing for a bumper pay packet for their big fight.

Full-sized UFC champ Conor McGre­gor, 29, will take on un­de­feated box­ing leg­end Floyd May­weather in what is likely to be the high­est gross­ing fight in his­tory.

Ex­perts reckon that 40-year-old May­weather will be vic­to­ri­ous, but it’s a toss up who will win the dwarf tussle.
