The Sun has reported that terms have been agreed upon for a Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor boxing match. Official terms have not been released yet and the contract remains unsigned because of a third-party hold up. It has been said the fight date could be set in the next couple weeks.
Coming to terms was the hard part for the UFC lightweight champion and the undefeated (49-0) Mayweather. The easy part will be putting on the show for the fans.
Conor McGregor has been preparing for this since last year when he received a boxing license in the state of California and he has also released sparring footage recently. He could just collect a paycheck but it looks like he wants to make this fight legitimate.
Floyd Mayweather feels McGregor has disrespected him because he doesn’t have the resume. Money is a champion many times over with a 49-0 record and has dominated his sport for over 20 years. All this while McGregor has only been relative for less than handful of years.
Whatever happens, it will be the most bought pay per view of all time and both competitors will receive the biggest paychecks of their careers. Add that with all the money changing hands for betting purposes and there will billions of dollars changing hands for this fight.
Hopefully all the antics come before the fight and fans of boxing can enjoy a fight they can be proud of. The only thing that could go wrong is if it turned into Thunderlips Vs Rocky.
