Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will face off in the ring this weekend, but the showdown for who wore it best has already begun.

The two fighters will finally go head-to-head in Las Vegas on Sunday at 4pm.

Ahead of the much-anticipated event, we take a look at the occassions where these contrasting characters have picked up on similar styles in the fashion stakes.

Floyd Mayweather is known for flaunting his wealth by way of flashy gold chains and watches and reportedly carries $1million with him at all times.

Comparatively, Mayweather's challenger, Irishman Conor McGregor, is known for his eclectic style and ability to flaunt even the strangest of garments with confidence.

Here are eight times Mayweather and McGregor channelled the same look. So who do you think wore it best?

ROUND 1: THE BLUE PLAID SUIT

This round goes to Mayweather. Tailored to perfection, he pulls off the difficult no tie, no belt look with ease.

Not to mention the Derek Zoolander-inspired pose, which instantly picks up more points in our book.

ROUND 2: THE RAGLAN TEE

Sorry McGregor, this round goes to Mayweather too for coordinating his outfit with his cash bands and even matching his shoes.

Take note, that's the kind of effort it takes to become a boxing champ.

ROUND 3: THE MUSTARD TURTLE NECK

No one quite pulls off the mustard turtle neck like Conor McGregor does.

He may have cropped a fan out of this picture, but he still takes this round out in impeccable fashion.

ROUND 4: THE ROBE

McGregor wins this round with his personalised Versace robe complete with metalic gold detailing.

Floyd may have his shoe collection in order, but he needs to follow fashion's rule number one: No sunglasses inside. Ever.

ROUND 5: LOUIS VUITTON

This round has resulted in a tie. Neither contender gets top marks due to some classic fashion errors.

While McGregor gained points for his Louis Vuitton button down shirt, he lost them again by donning those flip up sunnies.

Meanwhile, Mayweather lost points for looking as confused as we are.

ROUND 6: PINK SHIRT

It takes a real champion to rock the colour pink like Conor McGregor does which is why he's taken out round six with this confident fuschia choice.

ROUND 7: THE BUTTON UP POLO

Mayweather, round seven is all you. But your win is largely due to McGregor's sandal choice. Actually, it is entirely due to McGregor's sandal choice.

ROUND 8: THE SHIRTLESS DAD

McGregor wins the final round for not only looking great in these patterned shorts, but also for being a champion dad.

Mayweather appears to be having some serious fun with his daughter, but the colourful shorts are a swing and a miss.

While McGregor may have taken out the title of Most Fashionable, with an impressive 5-8 win, only this weekend's battle will decide who is truly a knockout contender.
