Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor look set to go one-on-one in what could be one of the biggest and richest fights in boxing history.
According to The Sun, the 39-year-old will come out of retirement to fight and put his joint-best boxing record in history of 49 wins and zero losses on the line against the UFC fighter in a boxing match, which is expected to take place in Las Vegas at the new arena inside the MGM Grand.
McGregor is only expected to make $7 million from this bout, while Money Mayweather, on the other hand, could earn a staggering $100 million. According to the paper, the only thing left to do for the fighters is to agree upon the purse and sign the documents.
The Sun states that it won’t be long before all of this happens, and an announcement will probably be made at some point over the next few weeks. On the face of it, this could be the final stand for each fighter in their verbal rivalry that has taken place over the past few months.
Via a source from the paper: “Floyd went mad after Conor said he would crush him and knock him out in 30 seconds, he’s obsessed with making Conor eat his words.
