Mayweather Could Be Just Testing The Waters With Fans By Releasing McGregor Fight Poster

Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather’s latest social media shenanigans have come in the form of this post today:
He’s even gone to the trouble of sticking the various branding adverts on the end of the image, which if we are all being honest, looks like a very rushed job done in Microsoft paint, as opposed to a professional one via Photoshop.
No official announcement came with the post surrounding a date, venue or under what exact rules a fight between the two men would happen under, nor has anything come from McGregor following the above (yet).
Time will tell if this Mayweather-McGregor poster is legit or just another one of Floyd’s testing the water strategies with fight fans.
