On his 40th birthday, Mayweather says he is ready and willing to accept the bout.
They keep throwing the Conor McGregor name out there. Conor McGregor, you know like I said before. I’m here, let’s make it happen…Every time Conor McGregor goes out there and compete and win, he do it standing up. When Conor McGregor did lose, he lost on the ground, he didn’t lose standing up. So he’s a hell of a fighter and he’s a very tough competitor, and he has the will to win. The UFC gloves is no different from boxing gloves, they’re just a little bit smaller, but if a guy got power, he got power and Conor McGregor got power…Let’s make the fight happen, let’s give the fans what they want to see. There’s only one fight out there that’s important. That’s Mayweather and Conor McGregor.
