“The Man” by The Killers is the official music video for the upcoming Mayweather vs McGregor fight.
The clip shows Brandon Flowers and company performing in a boxing ring in the middle of the Las Vegas desert. The video also features footage of the fighters in action.
“I think there’s a symbiotic relationship between using a song like ours and Las Vegas and a boxing arena,” said lead singer Brandon Flowers in a statement on Rolling Stone.
“Business of boxing. It seemed to make sense…and I just wanted an excuse to wear this suit again. Really the main reason.”
With regard to the upcoming fight, Flowers said, “It sounds like an exciting movie in the 80s. It sounds like some movie, good premise. It’s exciting. It is surreal.”
“The Man” will also be featured on the band’s upcoming Wonderful Wonderful album. It is scheduled for release on September 22.
The Mayweather vs McGregor fight takes place this Saturday, August 26. Check out the promo video above and let us know your thoughts.
