After months of negotiations going back and forth between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor Mcregregor, both camps have finally reached an agreement.
Former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. made the announcement on Instagram, confirming that the champion in five weight classes will exit a 23-month retirement at age 40 to face Conor McGregor.
UFC president Dana White, appearing on SportsCenter, said the fight would be at 154 pounds with 10-ounce gloves. He also said it will take place at T-Mobile Arena.
McGregor sent out a simple four-word statement on Twitter, with a picture of Floyd Mayweather Sr. instead of Mayweather Jr.
