After we were granted the most anticipated fight of the century between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, we will get another that could rival the intrigue and anticipation.
According to Yahoo Sports, Floyd Maywether and Connor McGregor have agreed on terms to square off in the ring on August 26th.
The 40 year old Mayweather will come out of retirement to potentially put the cherry on top of his 49-0 undefeated record will challenge the animated UFC lightweight champion at either the MGM Grand or T-Mobile Arena, both in Las Vegas.
Though the monetary terms of agreement are yet to be disclosed, the payout for both is surely astronomical, potentially in excess of $100 million for both.
The two confirmed the fight via their social media accounts, with McGregor already letting the trash talk commence.
