Another step closer toward McGregor v Mayweather.
Conor McGregor might just be trolling boxing and UFC fans across the world who are hoping to see a McGreor v Mayweather mega fight, but it's worth noting that the Lightweight Champion recently went out and got his boxing license in the state of California.
“He got a license today and a federal ID,” California State Athletic Commission executive officer Andy Foster told MMAFighting.com. “He's a California boxer now.
“He's qualified [as a boxer]. I'd love to see him fight in California. It just needs to be the right opponent. Certainly a high-level opponent. We're happy to license him. We're happy he's a California fighter.”
McGregor and Mayweather have been trading verbal jabs for quite some time, with the UFC champ finally saying he'd step into the boxing ring with Floyd for $100 million cash. As of now, it looks as though he's willing to take the necessary steps to make it come to fruition, because he's reportedly planning to apply for licenses in other states as well.
We recently spoke with Cam'ron about the potential mega fight and he strongly advised McGregor to stick to his UFC roots, but if Conor can get the $100 million purse he's looking for it's certainly worth a shot.
On the other hand, Mayweather hasn't fought since September of 2015 and although he claimed that was his last fight many believe he'd come out of retirement for the right opponent.
