June 19, 2017 Wrestling Observer Newsletter: Conor McGregor/Floyd Mayweather on, Okada/Omega classic, more

What is likely to be one of the biggest PPV events of all-time appears to be a reality.

Kevin Iole of Yahoo! reported on 6/14 that the negotiations for the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor fight have been completed.

Dana White on Sports Center said the fight would take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 8/26, and the fight would be at 154 pounds, which is a concession to McGregor, who would have the harder time making 147. Both men have agreed to 10-ounce gloves.

Mayweather Promotions was approved for a boxing event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for that date earlier that day, but Iole reported it could be moved to the larger T-Mobile Arena.
