They left it late but the full undercard for the upcoming Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather event/circus has been officially announced.

As is so often the case with high-profile boxing bouts, most viewers won’t bother tuning in until the main event but for the hardcore fans who want to get their money’s worth, the lead-up to the biggest sporting spectacle of 2017 is not too shabby at all.

Mayweather has predictably gifted several of his proteges spots on the card with Gervonta Davis, Badou Jack and Andrew Tabiti all set to feature ahead of the 50th professional outing of their mentor.

“What a night this will be for fight fans, said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. “Not only will they witness a first-of-its-kind main event, but they will also see two incredible world title fights, as Mayweather Promotions’ very own current and former world champions go head-to-head in separate bouts.

“Gervonta Davis is nothing short of pure boxing talent with dynamite power. Former super middleweight world champion Badou Jack is making his light heavyweight debut, and looking to take the title away from a tough and experienced Nathan Cleverly. But first, Andrew ‘The Beast’ Tabiti will open the pay-per-view telecast with what I expect to be a magnificent performance.”

Review Journal reporter Heidi Fang posted the running order of the bouts for the August 26 card.

Hartlepool’s Savannah Marshall will make her professional debut against Amy Coleman, while Welshman Nathan Cleverly is set to defend his WBA light heavyweight championship against Jack.

“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,” Cleverly told Sky Sports.

“I’ve trained long and hard for this fight and I’m ready to be let off the leash. This is the biggest fight of my career so far and I’m going to do a number on Badou Jack on August 26.”
