For the latest in the ongoing will they or won’t they saga between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, it appears that Floyd is all in to fight the UFC legend. News arrives days after McGregor was issued a boxing license in the state of California.
The most recent word from the Money Mayweather camp comes from Floyd’s on-again, off-again pal 50 Cent, who revealed to UFC President Dana White that Mayweather is “dead serious” about fighting McGregor. This revelation comes less than a month after Conor openly challenged the boxing champ to a $100 million fight.
White reportedly ran into 50 Cent last month while out to eat in New York City. When questioned by 50 if McGregor really wants to square up against Floyd, White dismissed the talk, saying “Floyd don’t want to fight Conor.” The rapper then immediately responded by insisting that Mayweather is “dead serious” about fighting McGregor and wants to make it happen sooner or later.
We still feel like a Mayweather versus McGregor matchup is too good to be true, but hey, crazier things have happened, right?
Nonetheless, check back with us for more on the possible fight between the two legends.
