While we already know the matchup between boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC superstar Conor McGregor will be an event for the ages, the rest of the historic evening is beginning to take shape as well.

Three undercard bouts preceding the highly anticipated main event were announced on Thursday, adding some title fights to the mix:

WBA light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly is set to take on WBC super middleweight champ Badou Jack, with the latter moving up in weight to challenge Cleverly.

As well, the undefeated Gervonta Davis will defend his IBF junior lightweight belt against Francisco Fonseca, while Andrew Tabiti meets Steve Cunningham for the vacant USBA cruiserweight championship.

The marquee event takes place on Aug. 26th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
