It’s about to go down!
Back in March of this year, Mayweather announced Saturday in England, where he’s been on a publicity tour, that he’s “coming out of retirement just to fight Conor McGregor.”
“I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC,” Mayweather, 40, said in a video posted by FightHype.com. “Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain, let’s fight in June.
“You’re the B side. I’m the A side. We’re not here to cry about money. I’m tired of all this crying about money and saying you want to fight. You’re blowing smoke up everyone’s ass, if you want to fight, sign the paperwork.”
On Wednesday, McGregor’s promoter, UFC President Dana White, appeared on Inside the NBA on TNT following the Game 1 blowout by the Cleveland Cavaliers over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, and revealed an agreement for McGregor’s half to the fight was complete.
“The McGregor side is done,” White said. “I’m starting to work on the Mayweather side now.”
