Mayweather Promotions to seek August date for Mayweather-McGregor

12:49 AM ET

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have a date in mind for their megafight in Las Vegas: Aug. 26.

Mayweather Promotions plans to request the date from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the much-anticipated boxing match between Mayweather, the former longtime pound-for-pound king and heavy favorite who plans to exit a 23-month retirement for the bout, and UFC superstar Conor McGregor, a source with knowledge of the plan told ESPN on Monday.

At the Nevada commission meeting scheduled for Wednesday in Las Vegas, Mayweather Promotions was scheduled to formally request Aug. 26 as a date to promote an unspecified boxing event, with Showtime — Mayweather’s broadcast home — as the television entity, but that agenda item has been removed and won’t be brought up at the meeting.

However, it is not because the fight won’t happen. More likely it is simply because the deal for the Showtime PPV bout has not been finalized yet.

The source said the date is still the one Mayweather and McGregor plan to have their welterweight
