On the eve of the huge Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight in Las Vegas on Saturday, the excitement is real around the sports world. There’s already been a pair of $1 million bets on the extravaganza — one that promises to bring in a record pay-per-view audience.
This excitement has bled over to the football field, where Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end George Johnson has decided to wear Mayweather-McGregor themed cleats for his team’s game against the Cleveland Browns on Saturday.
And they’re pretty darn awesome.
While preseason football continues and college football kicks off on Saturday, all eyes will be on T-Mobile Center in Las Vegas. It’s a historical fight between two loud-mouthed figures in different sports. And the closer we get to the main event, the excitement itself will only increase.
For now, we applaud Johnson for the creativity and artwork on his cleats. It’s pretty spot-on.
