We are counting down the days until Floyd Mayweather steps into a boxing ring once again, but this time around, it's not just any normal boxing fight.

'Money' is set to take on UFC star Conor McGregor in Las Vegas this Saturday, with the whole word set to be watching, whether it be at the arena, or in their own homes.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you'll know that the Mayweather and McGregor build up has been nothing short of feisty.

Jibes have been shared between the two infamous stars, with press conferences around the world providing entertainment and epic highlight reels.

Whether you are team Mayweather or team McGregor, you will have been entertained by the build up so far.

Although their press conferences were full of classic insults and brilliant hype, it was probably McGregor's breakdown with Paulie Malignaggi that has provided the most controversy during the weeks ahead of fight night.

Was it a knockdown? Or was it a pushdown? That has been the main question.

It's safe to say Malignaggi and McGregor aren't on the best of terms, and that's why the former boxer decided to quit Notorious' training camp a few weeks ago.

However, on the other side of the coin, Mayweather has enjoyed a positive training camp alongside current boxer Chris Eubank Jnr.

Eubank Jnr admitted the offer was too good to turn down when Mayweather asked him to join his last ever training camp, and since then, he has revealed what sort of shape the 40-year-old is in.

There are doubts about Money's fitness and condition going into the fight, especially given the age gap between the two, but Eubank Jnr is adamant that Mayweather is in the shape of his life, comparing his current condition to the state he was in going into the Manny Pacquiao fight a few years ago.

"Watching Floyd train over the last three weeks, in my opinion he's in just as good condition as he was when I watched him train for [Marcos] Maidana and [Manny] Pacquiao," Eubank wrote on Instagram.

However, Eubank Jnr knows that Mayweather could be in for a difficult night, with McGregor ready to bring it.

He continued: "Even though Conor has never had a professional boxing match, Floyd is not taking this fight lightly, he is going to bring it.

"I know Conor is never the type to back down so I expect there to be some serious action come August 26‪ #MayweatherMcGregor."
