Floyd Mayweather Says Conor McGregor Would Be "An Easy $300 Million”

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor met for the first time in August of 2017, where Mayweather scored a 10th round TKO victory in what was dubbed “The Money Fight.”

A victorious Mayweather is open to a rematch with McGregor, mainly because he views the fight as an easy way to get $300 million.

“If I could pick an easy $300 million, absolutely,” Mayweather said on Shannon Sharpe’s podcast (via Damon Martin of MMA Fighting). “Same way, same results.”

McGregor has hinted at returning to boxing, naming another boxing great in Manny Pacquiao as a possible opponent. Mayweather is also willing to fight UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for $300 million.

“Your health is your wealth,” Mayweather said. “So as far as me going out there and competing against a guy like Conor McGregor, or a guy that’s really inexperienced. Absolutely [I’d fight Khabib Nurmagomedov]. Those are $300 million fights. You have to make it make sense. Real sense. Certain type of dollars. I need to have my faculties also. I had my time. I had my era. It’s these young fighters’ era now. It’s OK for me to go fight a Khabib or a Conor – with those two fights alone, I could pick up $600 million. That don’t hurt to fight guys that just entertain. It’s all entertainment.”
