The much-anticipated Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor pay-per-view card has being unveiled, according to Yahoo's Kevin Iole.
According to Iole, the pay-per-view card will be a four-fight slate, with several boxers fighting for Mayweather Promotions taking part in the historic August 26 card.
The three fights that will be on the card pay-per-view card before Mayweather vs. McGregor are Gervonta Davis defending his IBF junior lightweight title against Francisco Fonseca, Nathan Cleverly defending his WBA light heavyweight title against Badou Jack and undefeated cruiserweight prospect Andrew Tabiti opening the card against Steve Cunningham.
Davis fighting Fonseca is a twist to reports that Davis would be fighting Roman Martinez for the title. told the co-main event was going to be Davis vs. Martinez as Fonseca was fighting in a title eliminator.
The report came hours before it was reported that Fonseca's opponent, Tevin Farmer, was shot in the hand and unable to fight Fonseca, leaving him without a fight. Cleverly had been trying to get a fight with Jack for some time now, but cleverly was ordered by the WBA to fight Dmitry Bivol. Cleverly and promoter Eddie Hearn have been trying to negotiate a deal with the governing body to fight Jack first.
It's being reported that FOX will have a two-fight prelim card headlined by Shawn Porter, but that has not been officially announced.
Fightful will have complete coverage of the entire card with a live post-show podcast on Fightful com and on YouTube.
