Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor offered $25m each to fight

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor offered $25m each to fight

Mayweather is technically retired with a record of 49 fights unbeaten and now spends most of his time promoting bouts like tonight's unification clash between James DeGale and Badou Jack. Mayweather said his minimum is $100 million.

During an earlier interview with TMZ, Mayweather had seemed more interested in showing off his expensive new watch rather than seriously discussing White's offer, but the UFC boss thinks that's exactly why the boxing legend needs this paycheque.

"Floyd said that he made an offer ... he never made an offer".

Boxing icon, Floyd Mayweather Jr., has revealed that he offered $15 million in a bid to clinch an unprecedented fight with mixed martial artist and Ultimate Fighting Championship kingpin, Conor McGregor.

During an appearance on FOX Sports' The Herd, he said: "I tell you what Floyd, here's a real offer".

White said that he will offer both Mayweather and McGregor $25 million each and then they can negotiate the pay-per-view split. "Here's a real offer, and I'm the guy that can actually make the offer, and I'm actually making a real offer".

Trevor Sinclair shares his strong opinion on Dimitri Payet
Payet went on to more than just justify that price-tag, sizzling in the league as West Ham finished in a respectable 7 place. Manager Slaven Bilic says against Palace he saw "a great example that it's always about the team - not about an individual".

"Then we can talk about splitting the percentage on PPV but of course we are the A-side".

McGregor became the first man to simultaneously hold UFC titles in two weight divisions when he beat Eddie Alvarez in NY on November 12.

So far, only Nate Diaz has been able to out-strike and out-grapple Conor McGregor so, flawed as he may be, it won't likely be easy for future opponents to make use of Silva's keen observations.

White reiterated to Cowherd that the UFC would have to be the promoter for any contest between the fighters.

"How (is he) the "A" side?" Conor's last two fights did 1.3 million and 1.5 million. If it's Conor McGregor it makes sense to me. "There's a reason you want this Conor fight so bad, because you know that's your money fight".

Another potential snag is finding a location.
