Reports Yahoo Sports:
Unbeaten boxer Floyd Mayweather will fight UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor in a much-discussed boxing match on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas, a well-placed source told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday. Mayweather is expected to make the announcement on social media as early as Wednesday.
Terms of the deal were not available, but it will either be at the MGM Grand Garden or T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The Nevada Athletic Commission on Wednesday approved the request from Mayweather Promotions to put on a boxing card on Aug. 26 at the MGM Grand. The venue could change, however, to T-Mobile.
The bout will be distributed via Showtime pay-per-view. It will an entirely boxing card. Mayweather Promotions will be the lead promoter.
Win or lose, Money Mayweather is going to get paid.
Mayweather’s undefeated record currently stands at 49-0. So the chance to go out 50-0, while collecting a sizeable bag, but too much for Money to stay retired.
We can’t forget that he’s out here giving praise to Cheeto Trump, though.
