ESPN’s Brett Okamoto has been all over the news that Floyd Mayweather is requesting a date for August.

While nothing has been mentioned about the August 26 card featuring Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor, it would give them a captive audience coming a week before the college football season heats up.

According to Okamoto, after hearing the request would be removed, the promotion is now planning to apply for it during Wednesday’s Nevada Athletic Commission meeting.
