Cape Town - Three top boxing fights have been added to “The Money Fight” undercard, the boxing-MMA crossover spectacular featuring Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor taking place in Las Vegas on Saturday, August 26.

The tournament will be broadcast live on SuperSport 2 at 05:00 (SA time) on Sunday, August 27.

Two world championship fights, presented by Mayweather Promotions, will see dynamic undefeated Gervonta “Tank” Davis making the second defence of his IBF junior-lightweight championship against undefeated challenger Francisco Fonseca.

In another excellent match-up, WBA light-heavyweight title holder Nathan Cleverly will defend his title against former super-middleweight world champion Badou Jack, who is stepping up in weight after a terrific run in the super-middles.

Plus, fresh off of a ninth-round TKO victory over Andre Berto, welterweight Shawn Porter will face Thomas Dulorme.

The action will open with undefeated rising cruiserweight contender Andrew “The Beast” Tabiti, a member of the Mayweather fight stable, taking on two-time former world champion Steve Cunningham in a 10-round bout for the USBA cruiserweight title.
