Mayweather vs. McGregor?: Mayweather Promotions Booked MGM Grand Garden Arena for August
Things just got a bit more interesting.
The constant on again-off again negotiations between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather may have concluded after it was revealed that Mayweather Promotions booked the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for August 26, 2017.
The August 26 entry in the Nevada Athletic Commission’s event calendar reads:
“Mayweather Promotions will promote a professional boxing event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. This event will be televised on Showtime.”
The MGM is the only arena Mayweather has fought in over the last decade, dating back to his split decision over Oscar De La Hoya in 2007.
Over the weekend, the Las Vegas Review Journal cited sources who claim the Mayweather-McGregor bout will take place “sooner than you think.”
