Well, I guess we’re really going to do this. Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are going to box. On August 26, at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, one of the greatest boxers of all time has agreed to fight a guy who has never boxed in his life.

The whole thing is absolutely ridiculous. It’s like the greatest racquetball player in the world taking on Rafael Nadal in tennis…except nobody would pay $75 to watch Nadal play the world’s greatest racquetball player in tennis. People are going to pay $75 to watch Floyd vs. Conor.

Of course, when all this talk about Floyd Mayweather fighting Conor McGregor started last year, nobody actually thought it would happen. I certainly didn’t. So when the fight was officially announced on Wednesday, the reaction on Twitter was INSANE.

Here are some of the best tweets:

Of course, THE BEST tweet came from McGregor himself:

Get it? That’s not Floyd Mayweather Jr.. It’s Floyd Mayweather Sr.
