40, was in London on Saturday to watch his protege Gervonta Davis, whom he promotes, defend his IBF world super featherweight title at the Copper Box Arena.
Following months of speculation, McGregor released a statement this week to TheMacLife.com, saying that he has signed a contract for the fight against Mayweather. "With McGregor's deal now officially in place, the focus now rests on Mayweather and his adviser Al Haymon to conclude the final part of what is expected to be one of the most lucrative events in sporting history".
"The McGregor side is done, I'm starting to work on the Mayweather side now", White said.
"Conor is one of the best boxers I've ever seen - ever".
"I believe so, with the Ali act I believe I can", he said, referring to a federal U.S. law put in place to stop promoters from restricting boxers from competing. "Conor McGregor is a professional and I'm a professional". The young boxing star earned her ring name due to her innate shyness, but inside the ring she possesses the complete package accompanied with a long list of honors representing her home country of Great Britain. I think we're all about good business. Earlier last month, Mayweather declared he has made a decision to get out of retirement to face McGregor in a boxing match.
Watson believes that McGregor vs. Mayweather should be a one-off, but top UFC light heavyweight contender Jimi Manuwa is reportedly angling for a boxing match against David Haye.
"When I get back to the US I will call Al [Haymon] and see what our next move is, there's no rush". White will now head to Mayweather's team to try and put the final pieces together so the fight can go through.
However, the closer we get to these two warriors facing each other inside the ring, the more the odds are going to change.
American Mayweather, 40, broke his silence on ending his retirement and trying to extend his flawless record to 50-0 against McGregor, who has a UFC record of 21 wins and 3 defeats. The only thing that I'm chasing now is my own records because we all know in the sport of boxing, I broke every record.
