MAYWEATHER TO FIGHT McGREGOR ON AUGUST 26

Floyd Mayweather is coming out of retirement, looking for his 50th consecutive professional win on August 26, the date confirmed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for a Mayweather Promotions fight pitting Floyd against UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor. In a report posted moments ago on Yahoo! Sports, it was revealed that although terms of the deal have not gone public yet, the fight will take place either at the MGM Grand Garden or T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The Nevada Athletic Commission on Wednesday approved the request from Mayweather Promotions to put on a boxing card for the August 26 date at the MGM Grand. The venue could change, however, to T-Mobile.
