According to a report from The Irish Sun, UFC superstar Conor McGregor and undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather have come to an agreement regarding financial figures for a boxing super-fight.
The report stated the following information:
We can reveal the MMA sensation (Conor McGregor) pulled out of a scheduled meet-and-greet event in Dublin this week to go to the States to make an anti-bullying video for schoolchildren.
McGregor will shoot the video as part of a deal struck with the Nevada Sport Commission after he was deemed to have thrown a bottle of water at Nate Diaz.
He will also use the opportunity to finalise details with his representatives in Las Vegas as the Mayweather fight inches closer.
In a previous live interview event in Manchester, the Notorious revealed that he would be jetting out to Vegas to settle his score with the Nevada Sport Commission.
He said: “There’s a lot of business to do out in Las Vegas. They tried to fine me $150,000 for throwing a bottle of water. It was a can but whatever. We’ll call it a bottle of water and say no more about it…
“Ah no look I’m gonna f*** this whole sh*t up again. I love the Vegas commission. We’ve come to an understanding. I’m gonna fly out there and fix it. I’m gonna get my Las Vegas boxing commission and then we’ll see where the f*** Flyod’s at?!”
The undisputed UFC lightweight champion was due to appear at the €100-a-head bash on Friday night, but withdrew today due to “an unavoidable schedule change”.
A source close to the Straight Blast Gym star told the Irish Sun: “Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have agreed a deal to fight and have both settled on their respective fees.
“The contract hasn’t officially been signed yet because of a third party hold-up but all the details have all been agreed on.
“The fight could even be announced within two weeks.”
The UFC lightweight champion recently released the following video to his Instagram showcasing his ever-evolving boxing skills.
