It’s finally on. Connor Mcgregor has finally made a deal with Floyd Mayweather for a boxing bout. After months of heated arguments and negotiations, both parties have agreed to the fight, according a report by The Sun.
The formal agreement is yet to be signed due to a third-party holding it up, but it’s confirmed that the 28-year old UFC champion would be going head on with the 39-year old undisputed boxing champ.
The deal would be finalized this week at Las Vegas by Mcgregor as he meets Mayweather to formally sign the contract.
Mcgregor made the following statement:
There’s a lot of business to do out in Las Vegas. They tried to fine me $150,000 for throwing a bottle of water. It was a can but whatever. We’ll call it a bottle of water and say no more about it…
“Ah no look I’m gonna f*** this whole sh*t up again. I love the Vegas commission. We’ve come to an understanding. I’m gonna fly out there and fix it. I’m gonna get my Las Vegas boxing commission and then we’ll see where the f*** Floyd’s at?!”
Mcgregor was previously meant to appear at a €100-a-head bash on Friday night, but cancelled it at the last minute to fly out to Las Vegas to finalize this legendary bout with Mayweather.
An unavoidable schedule change will see Conor McGregor in Las Vegas at the time of the event.
