MMA icon Conor McGregor is set to fight Floyd Mayweather in a boxing showdown of epic proportions.
Former boxing world champion Floyd Mayweather confirmed the fight via Twitter last night, uploading a video giving details of the upcoming boxing match.
The fight is scheduled for August 26 this year, and will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It will be a standard, 12-round boxing match with 10-ounce gloves
Conor McGregor also took to Twitter to confirm the fight, but in typical cheeky McGregor fashion.
The national treasure uploaded a side-by-side snap of himself and Mayweather's father, with the caption 'THE FIGHT IS ON,' which fans are speculation is a dig at Mayweather's age.

This dig comes two years after McGregor told Esquire that he would 'kill' Mayweather in 'less than 30 seconds.'
It is reported that both fighters stand to earn $100 million from the fight.
To be fair, for 100 million dollars, even we would try to fight McGregor…
