Mayweather, McGregor agree to August boxing super-fight

This per UFC President Dana White, who appeared on SportsCenter to discuss the fight shortly after it was announced as official.

The highly-anticipated matchup will take place at MGM Grand in Las Vegas on August 26.

Welterweight Conor McGregor wanders about the octagon following his battle with Nate Diaz in their UFC 202 fight night action at the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday, August 20, 2016.

The former welterweight champion went (49-0) before bowing out, a record he shares with the legendary Rocky Marciano, and will get the chance to make it a ideal 50 when he hits the canvas with McGregor, who will be boxing professionally for the first time ever.

A few things are yet to be settled: neither fighter is registered as a boxer in the state of Nevada.

The unorthodox fight is set to be one of the biggest in the two codes' histories with McGregor having negotiated the meeting with the UFC for a stab at the boxer.

Yahoo's Kevin Iole first reported the story, which evolved fairly quickly - unlike the negotiations in boxing's last megafight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

This time McGregor tweeted a picture of himself alongside Floyd senior, just a little disrespectful to his son who is unbeaten in all of his 49 professional bouts.

Undefeated Mayweather, 40, is coming out of retirement for the clash after being constantly challenged and goaded by the brash 28-year-old from Ireland.

"I talked to Conor McGregor this morning".

"He will go after Floyd Mayweather and he will try to knock him out". "And Conor is a mixed martial artist and he's going into a boxing match against arguably the greatest boxer of all time".

Mayweather has been retired since September 2015 and holds a career record of 49-0.
