As Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Jr fight rumors ramp up it keeps on getting crazier. Dana says it’s close to being done and then Floyd says it’s not – and a week later – reverse those statements. Here’s what TMZ is reporting now about how serious things are getting. If this is true I would expect a boxing bout date announced soon.
We spoke with McGregor’s rep who says The Notorious is “only training boxing” while working out in Dublin to focus on the super fight. That’s right … the UFC lightweight (and former featherweight) champ ain’t practicing mixed martial arts. Dana White announced last Thursday that McGregor’s side of the deal is complete.
Will Conor vacate the 145 pound title? The real question is whether or not he will actually fight Mayweather and survive a round with the 49-0 great.
