Mayweather Knows McGregor's Coming After Him — Leonard Ellerbe

Mayweather was said to have been running earlier when McGregor first sent the tweet that confirmed the fight and didn't post his social media announcement until later due to his excercise regimen.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. will come out of retirement to meet UFC star Conor McGregor in an August 26 boxing match that will feature two of the top-selling fighters in the world. It finally came together and Nevada boxing officials Wednesday approved the date for a Mayweather Promotions bout. Not to mention Mayweather Promotions will be the lead promoter. Floyd is retired now, but he's forgotten more about boxing than Conor has ever learned - the MMA star has NEVER fought as a boxer, even in an amateur setting. Conor McGregor is 27 and he is a southpaw. It takes a bet of $800 to win $100 while betting on Mayweather. "At the end of the day, my job is to make fights fans want to see".

"Everybody's happy", said Mayweather's adviser, Leonard Ellerbe.

"We've been in negotiations now for a while and to be honest the negotiation went smooth".

"All parties were motivated and reasonable and thrilled we could get everything done", he said.

"The impossible deal is now done".

Deflated Wawrinka says was too hesitant in French Open final
Wawrinka will be the third oldest victor of the men's title if he succeeds against all the odds on Sunday. Sunday was also the first time since 1969 that the Roland Garros final had featured two men over 30.

White has predicted the bout could break records at the box office, topping Mayweather's mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao that drew 4.6 million pay-per-view buys.

Despite the steep odds, White put on his best promotional spin on the matchup, painting it as an anything-can-happen affair.

"Given McGregor's non-existent boxing experience and Mayweather's reputation as one of the finest fighters in history, many observers are already predicting a mis-match but White told ESPN: "(McGregor) is absolutely 100 per cent positive that he wins this fight, and I stopped doubting Conor McGregor a long time ago. When two men step into the ring, anything is possible. Whenever Conor hits people, they fall. I talked to Conor McGregor this morning.

"I'm not saying Conor McGregor's going to win".
