Conor McGregor's potential super-fight with Floyd Mayweather has moved a step closer with reports a venue has already been booked.

Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena has been provisionally booked for June 10th, even though no agreement has been made between the duo.

The venue only opened last year, with McGregor beating Nate Diaz there last August. Mayweather has yet to fight in the arena.

T-Mobile Arena's booking was first reported on Sunday night. While there is no confirmation of the fight going ahead, reports only stated the arena was provisionally booked.

Holding such a high-profile date shows that talks are at an advanced stage for the fight to go ahead. With just under three months to go until the June 10th date, there is a slim chance of getting everything signed off in time to allow for the pre-fight promotion.

Despite that, both men continue to tease the fight. Last weekend, Mayweather confirmed that he was coming out of retirement to fight the Dubliner.
