Report: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor set for September, official announcement coming in two weeks



FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd, no stranger to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White or the mechanics of mixed martial arts (MMA). Cowherd apparently has “intel” suggesting Floyd Mayweather will come out of retirement to box UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor.
 

Transcribed by MMA Fighting:

“News I believe is gonna break here in about two weeks… I have already booked two rooms, September 17th and 18th in Las Vegas. My intel is Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather is going to happen. It changed late last week. I got a call then somebody else sent me something [Sunday] and Saturday. We’ve booked rooms in Vegas. [It’s happening] this September. Mayweather did have a very bad last pay per view gate: 550,000 people, he tries to get two-to-three million. So I think this is the most profitable fight for CBS and Mayweather. CBS has been working with Mayweather for years. That’s why his fights are on Showtime, because CBS owns Showtime. So Les Moonves [President and CEO of CBS] and the CBS peeps have decided, ‘let’s talk to the Fox – UFC peeps’ and you’ve got Fox and CBS, you’ve got UFC, you’ve got boxing, you’ve got Floyd, you’ve got Conor. It’s gonna make a lot of money for people.”

Time will tell of course, in two weeks!
