Yes. This is really happening. Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will fight on August 26, 2017.
Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs), the best boxer of his generation and one of the best ever, retired from boxing after defeating Andre Berto by unanimous decision in September 2015. Ireland’s McGregor (21-3, 18 KOs) is the face of the UFC and one of the most talented fighters the promotion has to offer. He last fought in November, a KO2 victory over Eddie Alvarez to defend his UFC lightweight belt.
