Exactly like Conor McGregor said he was going to do, he went to Las Vegas to meet with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) to negotiate his fine so he could apply to get his boxing license in the state and move forward with putting together the fight against Floyd Mayweather.
“I love the Vegas commission,” McGregor said in January during his pay-per-view interview in Manchester. “We’ve come to an understanding. I’m gonna fly out there and fix it. I’m gonna get my Las Vegas boxing (license) and then we’ll see where the f**k Floyd’s at.”
“The Notorious” then met up with the NSAC for a re-hearing and his original $75,000 fine, public service announcement valued at another $75,000, and 50 hours of community service was reduced to a $25,000 fine and 25 hours of community service.
On Wednesday, Boxing News and Views reported that McGregor paid off his $25,000 fine and is one step closer to getting his boxing license in the state of Nevada. At this time, the Nevada State Athletic Commission has stated that McGregor has not applied for a professional boxing license since paying off the fine.
McGregor was given a six-month time frame to complete his community service hours, which can be completed in Dublin, Ireland or Las Vegas, Nevada.
As far as when “The Notorious” is expecting the fight with Mayweather to take place, September is what Mcgregor said he had in mind and was close to being agreed upon.
