Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will reportedly start their promotional tour ahead of their August fight in Wembley Stadium at the end of this month.

The unbeaten boxer is coming out of retirement to face UFC champion McGregor in Las Vegas on August 26, with their much hyped press tour eagerly anticipated by many fight fans.

The BBC is reporting that Wembley Stadium in London will be the first stop, with the event expected to be free to attend.

An exact date for the press event is yet to be confirmed.

McGregor's previous press tours have got a lot of attention due to the Dubliner's controversial trash talk with opponents, and his verbal sparring with Mayweather is set to create headlines all over the world.

Mayweather is looking to extend his perfect winning record to 50-0 while the Las Vegas bout will be McGregor's first professional boxing encounter.
