Following reports that the Nevada Athletic Commission has approved an August 26th card for Mayweather Promotions, now it’s being reported that in fact, Conor McGregor will battle Floyd Mayweather on that date.
Kevin Iole from Yahoo Sports is reporting that a source has informed him that the much discussed, boxing match, will take place on August 26th, in Las Vegas. The T-Mobile Arena or MGM Grand Garden is expected to host the bout.
So, while there’s been no official announcement yet regarding McGregor – Mayweather, it’s certainly looking like this is going to happen. Crazy.
Last month, McGregor announced that he had finalized his side of the deal for a bout with Mayweather. UFC President Dana White then initiated talks with Mayweather’s camp, in an effort to get the fight signed.
