McGregror, the UFC’s lightweight champion, has already signed his part of the multi-million dollar fight agreement. The hold up has thus far thought to have been the fault of Mayweather, who has yet to have signed his side of the contract.
Despite Mcgregor signing the contract, there remain a multitude of hurdles to be overcome before the bout can ever become a reality.
First and foremost of these hurdles is the fact that McGregor has never fought a professional boxing match and thus will struggle to be sanctioned by boxing’s regulatory governing bodies for a high profile bout against Mayweather, the man regarded as one of the greatest boxers ever.
That said, UFC president Dana White has gone from dismissing the chances of the contest happening outright to know taking a leading role in the fight negotiations.
