It’s going to take a truckload of money and then some to make Floyd Mayweather Jr. lace up against UFC superstar Conor McGregor. The retired boxing champion has responded to UFC president Dana White‘s $25 million offer to make the mythical pay-per-view fight happen.
Approached by paparazzi Friday (January 13), Mayweather laughed off the massive proposition.
Floyd Mayweather is shooting down Dana White’s $25 MILLION offer to fight Conor McGregor … saying simply, “You’re a f**king comedian!” Earlier Friday, White appeared on ‘The Herd’ on FS1 and made the official offer for the fight — $25 mil each plus part of the Pay-Per-View profits. Floyd was clearly INSULTED by the offer and told us to look at his watch … a limited edition Hublot Laferrari which usually starts around $220k and can run up to around $350k. (TMZ)
This week, Mayweather’s pal 50 Cent vowed to make the headline-generating potential bout happen.
In mid-December, Mayweather trolled McGregor on his Instagram page.
A few weeks prior, Conor made headlines after landing a California boxing license.
“He got a license today and a federal ID,” California State Athletic Commission executive officer Andy Foster confirmed with MMAFighting.com. “He’s a California boxer now.” This news comes just days after the UFC unceremoniously stripped McGregor of his 145-pound title, which he won less than 12 months ago, and named Jose Aldo the new champion. He remains the UFC lightweight champion. (MMA Fighting)
