The farce…er…fight of the century is on.
Boxing star Floyd Mayweather is coming out of a nearly two-year long retirement to face UFC star Conor McGregor on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas.
Yahoo’s Kevin Iole first reported the story, which evolved fairly quickly — unlike the negotiations in boxing’s last megafight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
Both fighters confirmed the news on social media. McGregor went first with a Tweet.
