Mayweather-McGregor is ‘Absolutely’ Getting Closer
Floyd Mayweather was ringside for the Leo Santa Cruz versus Carl Frampton in Las Vegas over the weekend when he was grabbed by a Showtime announcer who asked him what chances are that the undefeated champ and Conor McGregor fight. His answer was the first real legitment response that this mega-fight may actually happen.
“I believe the fight can happen,” Floyd said with a serious look on his face. “Conor McGregor, he’s a tough competitor. He’s proved throughout the years in the UFC that he can fight standing up. So we’ll just have to see what the future holds. … Can we make this fight happen? Absolutely. That’s what everyone wants to see. And of course Showtime is the biggest and the best in the business, so hopefully Showtime pay-per-view, we can make it happen.”
Floyd even went into more details, saying that would want the fight to be at 147 or 150 pounds.
