Floyd Mayweather is less than a month away from facing boxing newcomer and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.
The boxing great expects to clear at least $300 million, or more, when his bout with McGregor is all over.
“I can do it in 36 minutes — 300 (Million) or better in 36 minutes,” Mayweather said to Showtime: All Access. “We’re just being real. Like I said before, I’m not hurting. I’m far from hurting. … I got paper. They talking about Mayweather this and Mayweather that, I’m not hurting. I got mine.”
Although Mayweather expects to make a lot of money from the fight, the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has yet to release how much each fighter is making for the super fight.
Mayweather also wants it to be made clear that he is the highest paid athlete of all time.
“Before we can speak on Floyd Mayweather and speak on, ‘Oh, Floyd Mayweather, he done this and he done that,’ and what he can and what he can’t do, I mean, am I the highest paid athlete out there?” Mayweather said. “And just coming back.”
Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather takes place on Saturday, August 26 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
