Nothing says "official" like an official poster.
Ever since the rumblings began, many people doubted that the potential superfight between unbeaten multi-time world champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather and two-division MMA champion Conor "The Notorious" McGregor would ever come to fruition.
"Money Mayweather" and "Mystic Mac" are arguably the combat sports world's two largest draws and biggest personalities, so while there would definitely be a lot of talk, there was always that doubt that the two sides would come to an agreement.
Then, Thursday morning in Manila, the official announcement came.
The fight was on. It's scheduled for August 26th at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Still, many are hesistant to believe, especially in this age of fake news and alternative facts.
This however, should put all those doubts to rest.
Showtime Boxing, who appears to have PPV rights to the superfight, tweeted what appears to be the event's official poster, calling it "the fight that no one believed was possible."
If you're looking forward to this monumental clash, the poster should make you excited right?
With just over two months to go before fight night, it's safe to assume that the leadup to this historic bout should be no less than exciting.
