Will the blockbuster fight of all time go ahead?

Promoter Eddie Hearn believes a fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor would be a "complete disaster" - but he would still promote it.

The two fighters are in talks about a mega-fight in Las Vegas that could be worth up to $1billion.

But Hearn does not believe it would be good for the sport, according to Sky Sports.

"It makes such little sense on one side, but so much sense on the other side," he said. "To the man on the street, the non-educated boxing fan, it's the best fighter in the world against the best mixed martial arts guy in the world.

"To the educated boxing fan, it's a complete disaster. It's terrible, just terrible. But if they need a promoter, I'm here to do it."

According to The Sun, a deal is imminent. McGregor will be traveling to LA shortly to finalise details as the blockbuster fight inches closer.

"I have my eyes on one thing right now, and that's Floyd Mayweather," McGregor told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani during a pay-per-view interview in Manchester, England.

"That fight is more than just being explored. There's a lot of steps, but it's the fight to make. It's the fight I want."

Mayweather echoed those sentiments in a Sky Sports 1 interview before the Carl Frampton-Leo Santa Cruz fight in Las Vegas.

"That's the only fight that will get me back in the ring," the retired boxer said. According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, he has applied for a handful of trademarks related to a potential 50th professional victory.

Veteran reporter Josh Gross has the final word in The Bleacher Report: "Is there any quibbling with the notion that nothing is impossible in the fight game when enough money is involved?

"Acknowledging the various contractual and regulatory differences between the way boxers and mixed martial artists go about their business, and the problems that oil-water mix could present, the answer is no—this spectacle can really happen because many millions of dollars are at stake."
