Savannah Marshall signs professional deal with Floyd Mayweather

Savannah Marshall signs professional deal with Floyd Mayweather

"Congratulations to all parties involved". The process for the boxing license is virtually the same as the one to compete in MMA.

It wouldn't be much of a fight if Mayweather and Conor McGregor met in a boxing ring.

McGregor (21-3) was ineligible to receive a boxing license in Nevada as recently as March, due to an outstanding fine for his involvement in a UFC media conference a year ago.

No date has been set for the blockbuster fight between Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) and McGregor.

" The McGregor side is done", White said Wednesday during an interview on "Inside the NBA" on TNT. This one is mostly for the benefit of the UFC, as it will no doubt co-promote the fight and bank away millions of dollars.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants attention more than he wants a fight.

"The McGregor side is done", Ultimate Fighting Champion president White said.

"I'm not saying the fight will happen, but I got one side done, now it's time to work on the other". UFC President Dana White, who has had his issues and a bit of a strained relationship with his top-grossing fighter, confirmed the contract signing on of all places Inside the National Basketball Association on TNT.

He was asked about the latest development regarding a long-discussed fight with McGregor, but responded: "This is Liam Walsh and Gervonta Davis' press conference. We now await Al Haymon and his boxer's signature in the coming days".

Today (May 18, 2017), it appears as if another crucial step has been taken in regards to making the fight, as McGregor has applied for a boxing license in the state of Nevada.

Mayweather is now in London with protege Gervonta Davis, who makes his first defense of his International Boxing Federation (IBF) super featherweight title against Liam Walsh in the British capital on Saturday.
