Responding to McGregor’s Manchester interview, Mayweather says a fight with McGregor can happen.
I believe the fight can happen. Conor McGregor, like I said before, he’s a tough competitor. He proved throughout the years in the UFC that he can fight standing up. So we’ll just have to see what the future holds. Can we make this fight happen? Absolutely. That’s what everyone wants to see and of course Showtime is the biggest and the best in the business so hopefully a Showtime pay-per-view, we can make it happen…I truly believe the fans want this fight. The fans have been asking for this fight. It’s all about entertainment. He’s very entertaining. He’s very outspoken, like myself, so let’s give the fans what they want to see.
