Mayweather, UFC star McGregor agree to August fight

15 June 2017

Conor McGregor will fight Floyd Mayweather on August 26, according to reports.

The book stipulates that the fight must be a boxing match and must take place by May 13, 2018, or all bets will be refunded.

As part of that deal with MGM Resorts International - the parent company of T-Mobile Arena - any Mayweather-McGregor fight could not take place within three weeks of Alvarez-Golovkin, and August 26 is exactly three weeks before September 16.

It's been well documented that Conor McGregor will have the advantage of youth on his side if he steps into the boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather later this year.

Recently, buzz developed about boxing veteran Manny Pacquiao wanting to face-off against McGregor if the Mayweather situation falls through.

In agreement with MGM's Resorts International, both fights could not happen within 3 weeks of each other.

McGregor is the biggest draw of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and the current lightweight champion - but his sport allows kicking and grappling. The request still could be made during a meeting of the NAC set for Wednesday in Las Vegas. However, he is confident in his abilities as one of the best UFC fighters on the planet.

The fight will be televised on pay-per-view on Showtime and would likely gross tens of millions of dollars.

On March 15, White appeared on Conan O'Brien's television show and said that because of the large amount of money involved, it was possible the deal was done.

Huddersfield Town, back in the top flight after a 45-year absence, are the only newcomers not to start with a home game. David Wagner's Terriers face Chelsea , Everton , Manchester City and Arsenal in their final four games.

Bennett said that while neither Mayweather, 40, nor McGregor, 28, is licensed to box in the state, that process shouldn't take long as soon as medical tests can be reviewed. But Mayweather has never fought in that arena and might feel more comfortable at the MGM's Grand Garden Arena.
