They're getting ready to back up the Brinks truck. FLOYD MAYWEATHER is boxing MMA star CONOR MCGREGOR to pad his bank account, his kids, grandchildren and great grandchildren's bank accounts too.
The once-retired all-time great boxer Mayweather will take on the UFC's biggest star McGregor on Sunday evening, August 27th at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mayweather with a 49-0 record will be facing a man who has never taken part in a professional boxing fight.
Mayweather said, "I mean, am I the highest-paid athlete out there? . . . We not talking about no contract. We not talking about no contract for no four years, or no contract for no five years. I can do it in 36 minutes.
"$300 [MILLION] or better. In 36 minutes." That's more than $8 million per MINUTE. A nice pay day.
Conor is not concerned about his financial future. He'll earn $100 million, the largest payday for an MMA fighter.
