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