The first poll by The Post and the University’s Center for Public Opinion was released today ahead of the highly anticipated fight between undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather and mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor. It shows that 25 percent of Americans are fans of mixed martial arts, narrowly edged by 28 percent who are fans of professional boxing. Fully 38 percent of adults are fans of one of the two sports, signaling the significant crossover appeal in Saturday’s fight. Full results can be found here.
