Well the rumor mill is swirling, and according to several tweets by boxing insiders familiar with Mayweather’s inner circle, the contract has been signed by Floyd to fight McGregor for an even split of 100 million. Of course, McGregor’s cut would be significantly smaller as he would be sharing it with the UFC organization, but no matter what he will never see a payday this big again in his life. Supposedly Floyd had already booked the MGM Garden for August 26th (which would be exactly 1 month before GGG vs Canelo) but that has since been retracted. Although there is no OFFICIAL confirmation from Floyd yet, there is the additional clue out there that he has canceled his upcoming trip to Africa, which would make sense if he were training.
I am not going to get into the analysis of this fight until it is official, but as of today it is looking like it might actually be happening.
