The two fighters both announced the fight Wednesday, after months of speculation about whether Mayweather would be lured back to the ring at the age of 40 to face a mixed martial arts fighter who has never had a pro boxing fight.

Oddsmakers immediately made Mayweather vs Mcgregor Live Stream a big 11-1 favorite in a fight that will take place in a boxing ring and be governed by boxing rules. It will take place at 154 pounds.

"It's official," Mayweather said on Instagram next to a video poster of both fighters.

"THE FIGHT IS ON," McGregor tweeted several minutes earlier, posting a picture of himself next to one of Mayweather's father, Floyd Sr.Mayweather, who retired in September 2015 after winning all 49 of his pro fights, will face the Irish UFC superstar at the T-Mobile arena on the Las Vegas Strip.

A recent report from the Los Angeles Times stated that WME-IMG would take over negotiations for the much-talked about boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor after Dana White was allegedly pushed to the side. That’s not the case, though, according to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president, who told TMZ that the only man running the show is him.

"Let me tell you, when the L.A. Times, we live in a world right now where you can't believe anything that you read. The L.A. Times is putting out that, who else would be running the Mayweather, McGregor deal than me?,” asked Dana. “Who?”

When asked to confirm if new UFC owners WME-IMG were indeed running the show, White was quick to dismiss that notion.

“What does WME know about making big fights? I’ve had a couple of back-to-back days with bad ‘legitimate’ news stories with the Las Vegas review Journal and now the L.A. Times. Trust me, I'm running the Mayweather, McGregor deal. I’m the only one in on it.”

"This is really an unprecedented event," said Stephen Espinoza, who heads Showtime Sports, which will handle the pay-per-view. "Really we haven't seen anything in modern history that resembles it, it's impossible to predict how many sales this will do."McGregor, the wildly popular UFC star, is 21-3 in UFC fights, and is coming off a win in November against Eddie Alvarez in which he became the promotion's first two-division champion. Though he hasn't boxed professionally, McGregor did box while growing up and is known for his striking expertise in UFC.

"The impossible deal is now happening," UFC chief Dana White said on ESPN.

The two fighters are expected to do a press tour shortly before going into final training for the fight. The cost of tickets and the price of the pay-per-view has not been decided, though the pay-per-view is expected to be at or near the $99.95 charged for Mayweather's 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao that drew a record 4.4 million pay-per-view buys.

Mayweather will come off a two-year retirement in a bout that McGregor has been pushing for nearly that long. It finally came together and Nevada boxing officials on Wednesday approved the date for a Mayweather Promotions bout.
