Make the fight happen, Dana. . .
With Skip Bayless removing himself from ESPN, Floyd Mayweather finally made his first ever appearance on ESPN’s First Take. In the conversation with Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman, Floyd opened up on how he’s been one of the few fighters to live healthy after his boxing career is over – in comparison to other legends that saw their life deteriorate after the sport.
As Stephen brought up numerous occasions where different outlets believed he wouldn’t defeat Manny Pacquiao two years ago, Mayweather soon transitioned his focus to sharing first details on how he and Al Haymon tried to make a fight happen with Conor McGregor.
While UFC and Dana White opted to not agree on the fight, which would’ve been McGregor’s highest pay to date, Money cited how he’s sticking to the $100 million number, if he does decide to step back in the ring. Regarding a rematch with Manny, Floyd said he only has interest in a boxing bout with McGregor – and officially called out the MMA promotion.
