McGregor offered $15M by Mayweather to bout

 

Five-division world champion and the greatest boxer of all time Floyd  Mayweather Jr. has offered $15-Million to the UFC Champion Conor McGregor and mixed martial arts star to enter the boxing ring with him.

Mayweather, who retired unbeaten at 49-0 after defeating Andre Berto during September 2015, cited that McGregor fight, was the only thing that could entice him to end his exile from the ring.

The 39-year-old answered the question about where he is interested for a rematch with Filipino Star Manny Pacquiao following the duo’s much-heralded “Fight of the Century” before two years.

Mayweather said –

“Only thing I’m probably interested in is the Conor McGregor fight,”

“I’m a businessman and it makes business sense. I believe in what me and (business adviser) Al Haymon talk about every day — I believe in working smarter, not harder.”

In November 2016, McGregor, 28, challenged Mayweather for a fight under mixed martial arts rules on a condition of paying him $100-Million to fight.

Mayweather revealed initial talks with McGregor’s representatives had taken place, but stalled.

However, the initial talks between Mayweather and McGregor’s representatives did took place, but stalled later –

“We tried to make the Conor McGregor fight,” Mayweather said. “They know what my number is. My number is a guaranteed $100 million. That was my number.

“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.”
