Mayweather-McGregor is ‘Absolutely’ Getting Closer

By ()
Floyd Mayweather 'absolutely' wants to fight Conor McGregor.

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.
