When rumours first broke on Friday afternoon that Floyd Mayweather Jr was in negotiations with regard to a potential bout with MMA champion Conor McGregor, they were immediately dismissed out of hand as total nonsense.
UFC President Dana White described the report as ‘a tabloid story’ and stated that as far as he knew, Mayweather was on a ‘world wide vacation and hasn’t even been thinking of fighting’.
However, on Saturday the story received some form of verification as Floyd Mayweather Sr. stated that his son had recently informed him that he would be fighting against an ‘MMA fighter’ in the near future.
The story gathered even more momentum on Saturday evening as ‘Money’ himself stated that he was in fact behind the rumours and said that the fight was certainly possible.
Conor McGregor’s camp had refused to comment on the story throughout the weekend, however, speaking prior to his fight with Chad Mendes last July, the ‘Notorious’ stated that he would love to take on Mayweather in a boxing match.
McGregor also egged on the rumours himself via his official Twitter and Instagram accounts as he shared an incredible image that seemed to verify the story.
