‘Money’ talks

TWO OF A KIND: Floyd Mayweather and Connor McGregor

FLOYD MAYWEATHER announced he was ‘un-retiring’ last week so that he could fight UFC mixed martial artist Connor McGregor in a boxing match reportedly worth in an around the one billion dollar mark.

Talking to Mayweather, 40, who last fought on September 12, 2015 against Andre Berto, said: “I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, the UFC... sign the paperwork with the UFC so we can fight in June”.


McGregor, 28, has been calling Mayweather out over the last year and although the Irish fighter is currently taking a break from the octagon due to his girlfriend’s pregnancy, fans of both have been ramping up their calls for the two to get it on.
