The unthinkable has happened.
A fight between Irish mixed martial artist Conor McGregor [0-0] and retired five-weight champion Floyd Mayweather [49(26)-0] has been confirmed.
A fight saga which has rumbled on for months, both parties tonight confirmed via Twitter that the fight will take place on Saturday August 26th in Las Vegas.
McGregor would jokingly tweet a picture of himself and Floyd Mayweather Sr, before ‘Money’ May followed up with a tweet of his own, confirming the bout which will be aired on Showtime pay-per-view.
