It's official! Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor on August 26

Conor Mc Gregor and Floyd Mayweather

It's official. On 26th August, at the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will step into the ring to face each other in an actual boxing match.

Mixed martial artist McGregor, who has never boxed professionally, became the UFC's first dual-division champion in November 2016 and has previously challenged Mayweather to a fight under mixed martial arts rules.

The much-hyped Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight has been scheduled for August 26 in Las Vegas, according to two people familiar with the negotiations.

The 40-year-old Mayweather, who retired with an undefeated 49-0 record in 2015, made the announcement on Instagram Wednesday. "We've been in negotiations now for a while, and to be honest with you, negotiations went smooth", White said.

"The impossible deal is now happening", UFC chief Dana White said on ESPN.

The UFC has chose to take a backseat in the role of promoter for the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight.

Jared Kushner did disclose with the OGE that he and his mother did have a personal line of credit with the German bank up to $25 million.

A win for Mayweather would move him ahead of former heavyweight great Rocky Marciano, who also retired with a ideal 49-0 career record.

For McGregor, this seems to be the biggest payday of his career as he is reportedly expecting to make more than $100 Million.

The bout will be distributed via Showtime pay-per-view and will be an entirely boxing card.

"Absolutely not", White said yesterday during a media call for Mayweather Vs McGregor.

McGregor will be the overwhelming underdog, but win or lose the showdown is likely to propel him into the consciousness of many non-fight fans around the world. After winning that fight, against Andre Berto, he announced his retirement for the second time. "He is absolute, 100 percent positive he will win this fight". Whenever Conor hits people, they fall.

The fight was finally announced after over a year of negotiations, with the deal complicated by the fact that McGregor is contracted to the UFC. I'm not saying Floyd Mayweather's going to win.
