FLOYD MAYWEAHTER AND CONOR MCGREGOR
The talk about a possible fight between championship boxer Floyd Mayweather and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is making headlines again. Mayweather told ESPN on Wednesday that he offered McGregor $15 million and a cut of the pay-per-view to take part in a boxing match. The rumors of a fight began in 2016 when Mayweather posted a mock-up of a poster on social media. McGregor added fuel to the fire when he obtained a license to box in December.
However, McGregor has supposedly demanded $100 million to fight Mayweather, who retired after his fight September 2015 win over Andre Berto. Mayweather pointed out that McGregor has probably never even made $10 million for a fight. McGregor made $3 million (not counting pay-per-view bonuses) for his victory in August over Nate Diaz.
