Las Vegas will host two boxing megafights in the next two months.

Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather will face brash mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor on Aug 26 and Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez will take on Kazakhstan’s Gennady Golovkin for the world middleweight title on Sept 16 – both at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas.

The glitzy city will also be where Singaporean professional boxer Muhamad Ridhwan will be based for the next 22 days.

The 29-year-old, who became the Republic’s first boxing world champion when he captured the Universal Boxing Organization (UBO) world super featherweight title in May, left for the United States early this morning for a training stint at the Mayweather Boxing Club.

The New Paper broke the news in June that the local fighter, who is ranked 69th in the world, would train at the gym owned by boxing megastar Mayweather.

Ridhwan’s status as a fighter at the by-invite-only gym means he might be among the privileged few who will watch the Mayweather-McGregor fight “live”, but he insists he is focused only on honing his skills at the famous club.
