West Coast rap icon Ice Cube has miraculously found himself in the middle of Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor‘s upcoming pay-per-view fight. New reports claim the rapper-turned-actor’s popular BIG3 basketball league has booked the same venue their bout will go down in.
According to new buzz, Cube booked the T-Mobile Arena Las Vegas stadium ahead of the now-confirmed face-off.
Our BIG3 sources tell us they have no plans to move — they still have the venue booked and expect to play there on August 26th. The league even tweeted about it on Friday evening and T-Mobile has game tickets for sale on its site. Sources connected to May-Mac tell us there are plans in motion to move BIG3 to the nearby MGM Grand Garden Arena … it’s just a matter of time before that becomes official. (TMZ)
According to reports, Mayweather is expected to land around $300 million for the August 26 fight.
Floyd Mayweather stepped out in Hollywood Wednesday night … as the RICHEST ATHLETE TO EVER WALK THE EARTH!

Floyd has said he expects to make between $200 and $300 million for the McGregor fight — though he hasn’t confirmed the terms of the deal yet. (TMZ)
R&B singer Tank has already revealed who he believes will easily win the face-off.
