Will land in London before the end of next week

Are you busy next Friday?

Well you might want to cancel your plans because reports suggest that the two men involved in the biggest sporting event of 2017 will take centre stage in London for the final leg of their promotional world tour.

We hasten to point out that nothing official has come from either Conor McGregor or Floyd Mayweather just yet but a leaked poster on Thursday suggested that the tour will take in five cities in as many days.

Dale Jordan of MMA Mad reports that the tour will kick off next Monday in Los Angeles before stopping off in Houston, Texas 24 hours later.

Wednesday will see the pair travel north to the Air Canada Centre in Toronto before an appearance in New York City.

London will act as the final stop and while the above poster does not have a specific venue listed, it’s understood that Wembley Stadium will host the press conference.

Neutral cities were selected, meaning there will be no visit to Dublin or Grand Rapids, but given McGregor’s hardcore Irish fanbase, one wouldn’t be surprised to see a few thousand travel over to the English capital to get next weekend off to a thrilling start.

It was reported earlier this week that around 10,000 fight fans will be expected in London for the presser, with free entry promising an incredible turnout.
