The undefeated Floyd Mayweather is set to clash with UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor in one of the most highly anticipated fights in recent memory. Both McGregor and Mayweather have been hitting each other with verbal jabs in interviews and online. But next Saturday, they’ll finally do battle and show the world who truly is the better fighter between the two.
Both men signed contracts to not publicly release their earnings for the fight. But the amount of money these two men will receive is nearly astronomical. Mayweather is set to earn at least $100 million for the fight, which may quadruple if the event is able to achieve all its metrics. Meanwhile, McGregor is rumored to receive $75 million for the match. That’s a lot of f*cking money to get your face swollen like a balloon…as if that’s easy to endure.
Mayweather and McGregor have been training like true beasts for their upcoming fight. Just ask Paule Malignaggi how McGregor’s hittin’, better yet just watch…
By the way, Mayweather is an eleven-time five-division boxing world champion. McGregor is in Mayweather’s territory. This one might get ugly…
