Mayweather: McGregor fight ‘absolutely’ will happen

14 May, 2016

In an interview with Showtime, Mayweather says that a fight with McGregor is going to happen.

It’s really not a rumor. The fight may happen. We really don’t know, as of right now. As of right now. But do I think the fight will happen? Absolutely…We’re the A-side, of course. It has to be a boxing match, because most fights that Conor McGregor won inside the Octagon, he was a stand-up guy. So I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be a tough fight for me. We really don’t know as of right now, but there’s been a lot of talk, and hopefully we can make the fight happen…One thing about Conor McGregor, he’s no pushover. He fell short in his last bout, but a true champion can always bounce back. So that’s a guy that I can’t overlook. But no numbers — we haven’t picked a venue, we haven’t talked about money yet…I’m gonna get $100 milion of course.
