Hollywood actor Ice Cube is ready to cash-in on the upcoming Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor fight well ahead of their scheduled August 26 fight. The Big3 professional basketball organization creator has revealed his interest in negotiating a deal to get his company out of a major Las Vegas venue.
In a new interview, Cube said the right price could motivate him to have his three-on-three league moved to another spot.
“Of course,” Cube said when asked if he would move his Big3 from the T-Mobile Arena for money-related reasons. “If they do what they supposed to do and make us happy, yeah, we’ll move. We talking about it. I think we can get there.” (“Undisputed”)
Last week, reports surfaced about Ice Cube’s Big3 having an event scheduled at T-Mobile Arena on the same date as the fight.
Our BIG3 sources tell us they have no plans to move — they still have the venue booked and expect to play there on August 26th. The league even tweeted about it on Friday evening and T-Mobile has game tickets for sale on its site. Sources connected to May-Mac tell us there are plans in motion to move BIG3 to the nearby MGM Grand Garden Arena … it’s just a matter of time before that becomes official. (TMZ)
According to reports, Mayweather is expected to land around $300 million for the August 26 fight.
