The long-awaited fight, between the undefeated champion of the world, boxer Floyd Mayweather and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor is finally happening.
After much anticipation the super–fight has been confirmed. Boxers have agreed to fight on August 26th.
In 2015 when McGregor was asked if he’d ever fight Mayweather, he responded saying:
“Duh! If you’re asking ‘Would I like to fight Floyd Mayweather?’, I mean who would not like to dance around the ring for $180 million? If we were to get it on, I would most certainly dismantle him also.”
Last January Mayweather offered McGregor just $15 million for the fight, while it might seem a lot for us, it’s considered dimes for such an anticipated fight.
However now the contracts have been signed, the date is set, Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor is finally happening. This could be the fight of the century.
