Fight promoter, Dana White, has revealed that he has reached an agreement with mixed martial arts champion, Conor McGregor, for a proposed megafight, but boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather remains unsigned.
He told American television cable channel, TNT, that martial arts champion has agreed to a boxing match and not a martial arts fight, which heavily favours Mayweather who has never lost in his two-decades career.
The Ultimate Fighting Champion President admitted that his plan now is to try to lure Mayweather out of retirement for a superfight with McGregor.
”The McGregor side is done.
”I’m not saying the fight will happen but I got one side done and it’s time to work on the other (Mayweather).
”If we can come to a deal with (Al) Haymon and (Floyd) Mayweather, the fight’s going to happen,” he said.
White said that the martial arts champion has agreed to step in the ring with the undefeated Mayweather despite not having fought competitively in a boxing ring since he was a teenager.
The martial arts fighter was granted a license to box in California several months ago.
