Conor McGregor And Floyd Mayweather Close To Squaring Off In A Billion-Dollar Boxing Match


While Conor McGregor might be in the dog house after bailing from UFC 200 this July, he may have just found his way into the richest fight in the history of boxing. The Irish UFC star was on Twitter, antagonizing none other than recently-retired boxer Floyd Mayweather, and now the boxer is set on making McGregor eat his words in the ring, but the face-off won’t come cheap.

The fight, which is reportedly close to being finalized with no date announced yet, would see Mayweather taking home $144 million for his troubles, and McGregor a significantly smaller $7.9 million. It’s been estimated that this could be the first billion-dollar fight when tickets sales, promotion, and PPV revenues are all taken into account.
