A mega-fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one step closer.
According to ESPN, McGregor applied for a boxing license in Nevada yesterday that comes on the heels of Dana White’s announcement that he and the UFC’s biggest star had worked out a deal putting the ball in Mayweather’s camp to get the deal done.
There are those that claim to be close to the Mayweather camp that say the deal will never get done simply because Floyd wants another $100 million dollar payday.
Bottom line is the only way this fight happens is if Floyd wants it to happen and I don’t believe money is the motivating factor. In his last professional fight versus Andre Berto he walked away with $32 million dollars.
Not chump change by any means but it’s definitely not the $200 million he earned versus Pacquiao.
This is shaping up to be one of those situations where the anticipation is far greater than the realization.
