Ahead of Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor's face-off this week here's Showtime's promo featuring The Killers' new track 'The Man'.

The Las Vegas band are promoting the fight which will take place in their hometown on August 26 with the new video for their new single.

It features Brandon Flowers and the band performing the track in a boxing ring in the middle of the desert.

“I think there’s a symbiotic relationship between using a song like ours and Las Vegas and a boxing arena. Business of boxing. It seemed to make sense,” Flowers said in a statement.

“Oh, you want to use our song? We want to be in a ring too. You know what I mean… and I just wanted an excuse to wear this suit again. Really the main reason.”

Regarding the fight, Flowers added, “It sounds like an exciting movie in the 80s. It sounds like some movie, good premise. It’s exciting. It is surreal.”
