A final date for a Mayweather and McGregor match will depend on how "motivated" the two sides are to reach a deal, according to Espinoza. Floyd hasn't mentioned the fight lately, and many speculate he may not have been serious about fighting the UFC champ. He has also worked with Rolls Royce, which gave him a custom made auto a year ago, as well as appearing in the popular videogame series Call of Duty.
Plenty of observers, pundits and fighters have argued that Conor McGregor doesn't stand much of a chance against Floyd Mayweather, if and when they ever box. "But in boxing, we have to remember Mayweather is the best defensive boxer of all time". It just seems like De La Hoya's anxious about a bigger fight with more mainstream appeal stunting the potential return from the money fight he's involved in. Could I potentially hold my own on one of the second-tier tours? Here's what Tony said via givemesport.com about MMA fighters and Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. McGregor's previously earned a personal record of $3 million in disclosed pay from his appearance in UFC 202 last August, though his final haul was rumored to be several million dollars larger due to PPV revenue and sponsorship money. Mayweather has yet to sign the contract to make their fight a reality. And if Floyd were to come out of retirement to take on someone like Keith "One-time" Thurman, Errol Spence or some other top welterweight, not only would I applaud the fight, I'd be the first one on line for a ticket.
So how big exactly would Mayweather vs. McGregor be, should the event take place later this year? In an interview with Yahoo Sports' Chris Mannix, UFC president Dana White was asked if there was an update on negotiations for the superfight.
