It's official, for sure this time. Both sides have signed -- Conor McGregor Vs. Floyd Mayweather: Historic Boxing Superfight Date Announced.
Per McGregor's Instagram account, thenotoriousmma: THE FIGHT IS ON.
Never thought I'd see this. But it's actually going to happen. They have announced a date and all, August 26th 2017. That's only 2 months away. That's even more surprising to me that it's so close.
Don't have any other specifics yet. Someone post them here when you see them, if you can. Like what glove sizes, purse amount, etc. Oh and the weight limit. Curious on that too.
Also, is there ANY chance McGregor can win this fight? I have had this theoretical discussion about a half dozen times already in person.. I don't think he can. Mayweather is too elusive. As much as I want to see this fight, the ultimate crossover of MMA and Boxing, star power wise.. I think it will be a somewhat boring fight, ending in a Mayweather decision.
