A tabloid had the Internet buzzing on Tuesday that Mayweather-McGregor could actually happen
Speculation and unfounded reports that the long-promoted Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor boxing match was on its way to really happen met with some cold water on Tuesday.
The denials began with UFC president Dana White, who told ESPN, clearly, "There is no agreement even close to being made," when he arrived Tuesday.
Mayweather posted on Instagram soon after, sharing a similar sentiment.
"It seems that there are several rumors floating around the media recently, however, left the record to show, there has been no agreement regarding a fight between me and any other fighter," he said. "I am happily retired and enjoy life right now. If any change is to come, make sure I will be the first to inform the world."
A British tabloid wrote Tuesday that McGregor had traveled to the United States to film a public service bulletin against intimidation and was scheduled to accept terms with Mayweather, warning that a third party was stopping the fight being finalized.
Although there have been a lot of braggart of Mayweather and McGregor, there have been no substantiated reports of actual negotiations. For now, it will remain a point of conversation for both men and fans. If it ever develops into something more than it certainly remains to be seen.
