Floyd Mayweather Offers $15 Million To Fight Conor McGregor

Never mind the battle that Soulja Boy and Chris Brown are set to have this spring, today we get some news from some real fighters. Today the word comes down that Floyd Mayweather has offered Conor McGregor $15 Million to make their fabled fight a reality. Rumors have been swirling for months and could actually go through. The boxer recently sat down with ESPN for a chat stating: “We are willing to give him $15 million and then we can talk about splitting the percentage — the back end — on the pay-per-view.

However, of course, we’re the ‘A side.’ How can a guy talk about making 20 or 30 million if he has never made 8 or 9 million in a fight.” He added that “Only thing I’m probably interested in is the Conor McGregor fight.” Floyd finished up his interview by stating “I’m a businessman, and it makes business sense. I believe in what me and [advisor] Al Haymon talk about every day — I believe in working smarter, not harder.” Speak your thoughts on the possible fight in the comments and stay tuned for much more from both fellas coming very soon!
