Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather: Dana White makes announcement

May 20, 2017, 00:33

McGregor's a fighter. I'm a fighter. Earlier last month, Mayweather declared he has chose to get out of retirement to face McGregor in a boxing match.

The saga that is Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor seems to be moving along quite quickly these days.

On Wednesday, UFC President Dana White announced he'd struck a deal with McGregor for a potential fight with Mayweather.

McGregor released a statement Thursday on the application through TheMacLife.com.

"If we can come to a deal with Haymon and Mayweather and White and McGregor", Marchman said, "the fight's gonna happen". Floyd, career record 82-0, would be taking this fight as a payday for the most part, as he has nothing left to prove in a boxing ring and has stated previously on a couple occasions he wants to retire.

Race for the Golden Boot
Chelsea has taken the trophy off Leicester, which astonishingly won the title last season but collapsed this year and is now 11th. His first goal moved him past Cha Bum-Kun to become the highest-scoring South Korean player in a European season.

"This is a Liam Walsh and Gervonta Davis press conference, let's focus on these two competitors", Mayweather said, according to the Washington Post. McGregor was granted a licence to box in California several months ago.

He says the most important part of the contract has been signed off on and now it's up to Mayweather and his business partner, Al Haymon. These variables include the date, the venue, what TV stations will obtain the rights to air the fight, even the size of gloves both fighters will wear will all have to be agreed on before this fight is set in stone. Congratulations to all parties involved.

Now, there's no doubt that in a boxing match, there's a pretty good chance that some of these aforementioned bouts wouldn't end so well for the UFC fighter.

However, that means McGregor vs. Mayweather would need to take in nearly double the $600 million the American's fight with Manny Pacquiao made - dubbed "the richest night in sports history".

The $100 million guarantee "is only going to happen if the [purse] split is substantially in the favor of Mayweather", the Times was told. The list of those he has beaten includes just about every top fighter anywhere near his weight: Manny Pacquiao; Saúl Álvarez, known as Canelo; Miguel Cotto; Juan Manuel Marquez; Oscar De La Hoya.
