Mayweather vs. McGregor: A Rock’em Sock’em Simulation

What will happen when a boxing legend goes toe-to-toe with an MMA superstar? We couldn't wait to find out, so we simulated the action with a classic toy.

It’s been a dream match-up for years. Floyd “Money” Mayweather and “The Notorious” Conor McGregor facing off in the same ring. Well that dream is about to become reality when the two meet in a boxing match on Saturday, August 26th, in Las Vegas.

Toy Fight of the Century

We wanted to preview the fight for you, but we can’t legally show you any footage of either fighter. So we did the next best thing. We simulated the fight using Rock’em Sock’em Robots!
