'The Fight Is On': Conor McGregor to Meet Floyd Mayweather in Octagon

Floyd Mayweather's boxing firm has verbally retracted a date request for a potential fight with Conor McGregor to take place on 26 August.

Though oddsmakers make Mayweather a big favorite, the thought of the fight has excited many in the MMA world.

Mayweather Jr. (49-0) hasn't fought since he retired after a unanimous decision victory over Andre Berto in September 2015.

Mayweather has said he would offer McGregor $15 million to fight, far below McGregor's reported asking price of $100 million.

An Aug. 26 date would steal some of the thunder - and riches - that De La Hoya would like his bout to rake in without competition for attention.

Mixed martial artist McGregor, who has never boxed professionally, became the UFC's first dual-division champion in November 2016 and has previously challenged Mayweather to a fight under mixed martial arts rules.

The ultimate money fight and crossover boxing match between undefeated star Mayweather and UFC champion McGregor has been in the works for over a year but is now a reality.

Another source speculated Mayweather Promotions could be holding the MGM Grand for another boxing event for one of its other fighters. It will be broadcast as pay-per-view on Showtime, with whom Mayweather has a contract.

McGregor recently applied for a boxing license in Nevada, though his application has not been completed yet.

In any case, the stage is set for one of combat sports' most polarizing and controversial crossover matches, and it will draw some absolutely huge numbers despite the tentative opinion it's received among hardcore fight fans. "Obviously its before the "Canelo" [Alvarez] - [Gennady Golovkin] fight, so I think it'd be right on time." .

"It'll be at the T-Mobile Centre in Vegas, it'll be at 154-pounds (69.8kg), they'll wear 10-0z (283g) gloves, it'll be in a ring".
