Boxing great Floyd Mayweather, former five-weight world champion, has agreed to a mega-fight with MMA master Colin McGregor in Las Vegas on August 26.
The self proclaimed “best ever” will be looking to extend his record in the sport to 50-0, against a man in McGregor that is merely making his boxing debut (keep in mind that it has been McGregor who has chased and challenged Mayweather for almost a year for this fight).

WILL HEAVYWEIGHTS UNIFY?
WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman says his world governing body will support a world heavyweight title unification fight between Deontay Wilder and the winner of Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko.
WBC champion Wilder last fought in February -- a fifth-round stoppage of Gerald Washington -- and Sulaiman says he is next due to make a mandatory and sixth defense against Bermane Stiverne, who he won the belt off in Jan 2015 and has avoided ever since.

The brother of legendary boxer Julio Cesar Chavez was killed in his home in western Mexico, state authorities said Monday.
Sinaloa state prosecutor Juan Jose Rios said in a news conference that two men entered the rear of Rafael Chavez Gonzalez's house in Culiacan on Sunday night. One was armed and demanded money.
Some amount of money was handed over, but they demanded more, Rios said. When Chavez resisted he was shot.
Another brother, Roberto Chavez Gonzalez, confirmed that account Monday and said his brother was shot in front of his family.
Murders are up significantly in Mexico this year. During the first five months of 2017, there were 9,916 killings nationwide — an increase of about 30 percent over the 7,638 slain during the same period last year.
