Headlining the undercard is Gervonta Davis taking on Francisco Fonseca for the IBF Junior Lightweight Championship – Both fighters are currently undefeated.

Welshman Nathan Cleverly will defend his WBA Light Heavyweight title against Badou Jack, and undefeated Andrew Tabiti will take on Steve Cunningham for the vacant United States Boxing Association Cruiserweight title.

The undercard was confirmed by Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe, who stated, “What a night this will be for fight fans, 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.”

Speaking on the FOX televised show Ellerbe said “Fans are in for a show! – Not only do we have an amazing line up for our PPV telecast, we have a stacked undercard and plan to give the fans more. We are happy to have FOX and FOX Deportes on board to showcase this talent ahead of the grand finale this is Mayweather vs McGregor.”
