Mayweather-McGregor May Happen Aug. 26

The boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor has been inching closer to becoming a reality the past month, and the latest development is a strong sign that an announcement may be coming soon.

According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s schedule, Mayweather Promotions has booked the MGM Grand on August 26 for a boxing event to be televised on Showtime.

This news comes a day after McGregor posted an Instagram photo teasing a major announcement and photos were released of Mayweather sparring in his gym.

UPDATE:

ESPN’s Dan Rafael confirmed that Mayweather’s team plans to request Aug. 26 from the Nevada Athletic Commission for the fight against McGregor.

Sources close to the Mayweather camp added that a deal has yet to be finalized between the two camps. Both Mayweather and McGregor have yet to complete applications for boxing licenses in the state of Nevada as well.
