As it has been confirmed this morning, former boxing world champion, Floyd Mayweather will fight UFC champion Conor McGregor in a light-middleweight boxing match in Las Vegas on 26 August.

American Mayweather, 40, posted a video on Twitter confirming the fight details with the message: “It’s official.”

It is reported each fighter could earn as much as $100m (£78.4m) from the bout, which would be one of the richest in boxing history.

Mayweather, a former five-weight world champion and widely considered the best boxer of his generation, retired unbeaten in 2015 after 49 bouts.

That followed a successful defence of his WBC and WBA welterweight titles, a victory that equaled Rocky Marciano’s career record of 49-0.

Mayweather retired for the first time in 2008 after 39 fights.

McGregor, who has never boxed professionally, became the UFC’s first dual-division champion in November 2016 and has previously challenged Mayweather to a fight under mixed martial arts rules.

His boxing licence was granted by the California State Athletic Commission in December, allowing him to box in the US state.
