Mayweather vs. McGregor
Venue Standoff With Big3
6/17/2017 12:50 AM PDT
There’s a fight of the century over the fight of the century … with two major sporting events vying for the T-Mobile Arena on August 26th.
In one corner … Mayweather vs. McGregor. When the fight was announced, Dana White and Floyd Mayweather stated it will take place at the Vegas venue.
Problem is … Ice Cube‘s BIG3 basketball league already booked the location for the league championship game on the same night.
Our BIG3 sources tell us they have no plans to move — they still have the venue booked and expect to play there on August 26th. The league even tweeted about it on Friday evening and T-Mobile has game tickets for sale on its site.
Sources connected to May-Mac tell us there are plans in motion to move BIG3 to the nearby MGM Grand Garden Arena … it’s just a matter of time before that becomes official.
For now, both sides have dug in … it’s a standoff.
