Speculation has been running rampant for quite some time now as to whether or not the potential super fight between UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will even take place.
McGregor signed his end of the deal last week and Mayweather says he looks forward to signing his end of the deal.
“They said Conor McGregor signed his end of the deal. I look forward to signing my end of the deal. I haven’t signed my end of the deal yet so once I get home, I’ll communicate with my team, I’ll talk with Al Haymon, I’ll talk with Leonard, and we’ll see what we come up with. We’ll put all our great minds together and we’re gonna have another superfight,” Mayweather said at a meet & greet event.
If the fight does finally come together, it’s going to the the 50th professional boxing match for Mayweather and the first for McGregor.
Mayweather also wants the fans to know that when he makes a move, it's going to be a huge move.
“If he signed the contract - I’m over here working, I’m always working. . . When I get back over to the U.S., I’ll communicate with my team, I’ll call Al [Haymon, Mayweather’s manager], I’ll get Al and Leonard [Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions] on a business call to see what’s our next move. There’s no rush. When we do make the move, most likely it’s gonna be a huge move. You already know, when Floyd Mayweather fights, it’s history,” says Mayweather.
There’s no date set yet for the potential super fight, but one should be announced if Mayweather signs the contract.
