And the party has already begun on the streets outside where passionate fans have displayed their support.
One group of topless revellers were pictured brandishing a Republic of Ireland flag emblazoned with the words: ‘F the Mayweather’.
And one man in his nation’s football shirt looked particularly pleased as he posed for a snap with two scantilly clad showgirls.
Mayweather, who has an incredible undefeated record of 49 0 to his name, has come out of retirement to fight the younger McGregor.
And while the line up in the ring has had people talking for months, it is the Corona ring girls Tawny Jordan, Kyra Keli, Samantha Kumiko and Jessica Harbour who very well could steal the limelight from the two men in gloves.

Most popular method of winning
Both men have predicted a KO of their opponent, with McGregor foreseeing his victory inside four rounds.
His opponent simply promised a knockout so one of them, and plenty of gamblers will be wrong.
Mayweather by KO/TKO (8/11, BetFred) and decision (11/4, Coral) come out on top value.
Daily Mail’s tips for the fight (All Paddy Power)
Many believe the Irishman to have a power advantage, citing his opponent’s age, brittle hands, and recent track record of going the distance.
But Mayweather is coming up against vastly experienced boxers, not a man in his first professional bout, with that said, it may be worth getting on the 49 0 star to win by KO in the first three rounds (11/2)
If the veteran doesn’t have the ability to inflict enough damage by the time 12 rounds are up,
he is surely going to have outboxed McGregor so a decision win (11/4) could be well worth a dabble.
