Fight promoter Dana White, has disclosed that he reached an agreement with mixed martial arts champion, Conor McGregor, for a proposed megafight with boxing superstar, Floyd Mayweather, although the American is yet to sign his part.
White told American television cable channel, TNT, that McGregor has agreed to a boxing match and not a martial arts fight, which heavily favours Mayweather who has never lost in his 20-year-plus career.
He admitted that his plan now, is to try to lure Mayweather out retirement for a superfight with McGregor.
“The McGregor side is done,” Ultimate Fighting Champion president White said.
“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.”
