Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor Aug. 26 MGM Grand Fight Reportedly Official

According to Dan Rafael, from ESPN, the date is yet to be approved by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Both men took to social media to confirm the fight.

The potential match between Mayweather and McGregor is expected to be one of the richest prize fights in boxing history.

Mayweather will reportedly earn more than US$100 million (NZ$138m) from the fight. McGregor is contractually obligated to the UFC and had to reach an agreement that would allow him to participate in a boxing match.

The only problem with that date is that all signs have pointed towards McGregor and Mayweather facing off at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and that date is now occupied by the BIG3 Championship Finals. However, it has been reported by the LA Times that he retracted that request not long after making it.

Metroid Prime 4 announced during Nintendo's E3 Spotlight
The Texan developer's last game, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, launched in 2014 and the team has been silent ever since. Nintendo's E3 2017 Spotlight featured quite a few surprises and more in-depth looks on games announced earlier this year.

Theresa May's leadership on the line as Conservative Party recriminations continue
Over 200 female MPs have been elected-that's a record high for the United Kingdom parliament, which has a total of 650 members. Prime Minister Theresa May's gamble in calling a snap election to strengthen her grip on power has ended in failure.

May to form government with DUP backing
But the results are: Conservatives, 316; Labour , 261; SNP, 35; Lib Dems, 12; DUP , 10; other parties, 13. It's nothing new for Mr Davis, who served as Europe minister in the Foreign Office between 1994 and 1997.

That will undoubtedly revive talks of a Conor McGregor super fight, after the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight titleholder began negotiating with the undefeated pugilist earlier this year.

In mid-February, when hype about the fight intensified, the Westgate SuperBook made Mayweather a giant -2,500 favorite, with McGregor paying back 1,100.

The SuperBook has already taken more than $10,000 on the fight, which is by no means official.

The fight is expected to be worth around half a billion dollars when it goes live on Showtime and could see Mayweather overtake Rocky Marciano's record of 49-0, which he now shares with the heavyweight legend. Perhaps it's even McGregor's way of trying to bait Mayweather into finalizing a deal, as it's sounding more and more like the much-hyped superfight might soon become a reality. But the reason Conor McGregor's as big as he is is he'll fight anybody, anywhere, anytime.
