Floyd Mayweather Jr. Talks Counter Offer To Conor McGregor, McGregor Responds

Although Mayweather downplayed (and likely undersold) McGregor’s MMA earnings, the undefeated boxer is willing to let have McGregor take home a small chunk of the revenue gained. He then said he wants $100 million to fight Mayweather in a boxing match. McGregor’s manager Audie Attar told ESPN last month that he doesn’t know if Mayweather is truly serious about a fight.McGregor is claiming that he plans to pursue some notable fights in the sport of boxing, although UFC President Dana White makes it clear that his company has an exclusive contractual hold on McGregor that prevents him from becoming an active boxer. That was my number.”But of course, we’re the A-side, how can a guy talk about $20m or $30m if he’s never even made $8m or $9m”. “Money” and “The Notorious” are superstars, who have transcended the ring and the octagon, yet to see a crossover fight happen in either discipline is beyond logic.Mayweather will no doubt catch wind of McGregor’s very personal taunt shortly.Per Dave Meltzer of MMA Fighting, the Irishman has broken the UFC’s PPV record several times in the last few years, but a bout against Mayweather would likely come with far bigger earnings.”We tried to make the Conor McGregor fight”.Mayweather, 39, is now enjoying retirement, while McGregor, 28, isn’t expected back inside the cage until mid- to late-2017 (depending upon who you ask).Mayweather, however, spoke on the matter recently saying that he’d be willing to pay McGregor $15 million for the possible mega fight, which “Money” said is the only bout that he’s interested in.His boxing licence has been granted by the California State Athletic Commission, allowing him to box in the USA state. But no way would the fight, the boxing match, be close to competitive. Tell him to go to them Showtime offices. “Floyd Mayweather don’t have a boss”. It’s not going to happen. “I’m not taking anything away from Floyd”. But Floyd has been flawless fighting the right guys at the right time.
