**Update at bottom**

The rumor mill is churning out some gold today. Numerous media outlets (including us) are hearing murmurs that Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are close to signing and agreement for a billion dollar BOXING mega-fight! What this would do for the sport of boxing is immeasurable. Conor Mcgregor is without a doubt one of the most popular mixed martial arts fighters in the world. Floyd is boxing’s reigning king and would be aiming to break Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record. This would be a huge fight that the world would tune in for.

The rumor was first reported by The Sun , they reported that a boxing match between the pair is close to being finalized:

Floyd went mad after Conor said he would crush him and knock him out in 30 seconds, he’s obsessed with making Conor eat his words.

Floyd is calling the shots. It’s strictly boxing and Conor will have to lose roughly 25lbs.

It was agreed in principle on May 2, but Floyd wouldn’t reveal the identity of his opponent until last night when he told friends he’ll be fighting Conor.

This could all be bulls*it  BUT how do you explain this weird tweet by McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh:

When questioned about the tweet being a joke and just poking fun at the rumors. This was his response:

It would be an extremely risky, yet lucrative move for McGregor. I guess we will have to wait and see how this plays out.
