California issues boxing license to Conor McGregor

California has given Conor McGregor a boxing license, according to MMA pundit Ariel Helwani.

Helwani, a pundit with mmafighting.com, said UFC lightweight champion McGregor was issued with the license and a federal ID by the Cailfornia State Athletic Commission yesterday.

The move was confirmed by McGregor’s manager, Audie Attar.

California's State Athletic Commission executive officer Andy Foster told MMAFighting.com: "He got a license today and a federal ID.

"He's a California boxer now."

"I'd love to see him fight in California. It just needs to be the right opponent. Certainly a high-level opponent. We're happy to license him. We're happy he's a California fighter."

Floyd Mayweather anyone?
