The crossover superfight between undefeated boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is getting ever closer to becoming a reality, according to MMAFighting.
“[September] is what I’m thinking. That’s what the word is. That’s what we’re close to doing.
“I’ve tried to talk to Floyd. I flew to Las Vegas to have talks with Floyd and then he retired. He just doesn’t want to see me. He’s petrified. Wouldn’t you be? No one knows what to expect with me, and they shouldn’t.
“Because I don’t know what to expect either.”
“I’m ready to box. I’ve been ready for a long time. The game’s going to be in shock when I step in the ring. Trust me on that.”
