While boxing and MMA fans anticipate the mega-showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, the 49-0 boxer is already looking ahead. 

On Wednesday, Darren Rovell of ESPN reported Mayweather has already filed for five trademarks for a 50-0 record.

This comes after Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports initially reported the much-anticipated battle between Mayweather and MMA star McGregor will be on Aug. 26. Mayweather confirmed the bout on his Instagram page.

Iole noted the fight, which will take place in Las Vegas, could pay each fighter more than $100 million.

The major payday surely helped Mayweather's decision-making process even though he retired in Sept. 2015 after defeating Andre Berto and improving his record to 49-0. What's more, another victory would give Mayweather the round number of 50 wins in 50 tries and move him past the great 49-0 Rocky Marciano record-wise.

The opportunity to move to 50-0 and beat a notable name like McGregor in the process clearly resonated with Mayweather considering he's already applied to trademark the record.
