“Everything is already closed by McGregor and now I can start negotiations with the Mayweather junior team,” said White. “This step allows us to have a better chance that the fight can take place, but there are no guarantees that we will reach an agreement,” he added.
White said he hopes to negotiate with Mayweather junior’s team as soon as possible and that he feels there is a possibility of reaching an agreement.
