Everyone seems to have an opinion on the potential super fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, even though no official announcement has been made regarding the two meeting inside of a boxing ring.
It does seem inevitable, though, as there’s simply too much money involved for everyone for it to not go ahead.
POTENTIAL SUPER FIGHT
Even UFC president Dana White didn’t see it happening at first, and now he’s actively trying to hammer out a deal with Team Mayweather as he claimed that the 49-0 American could receive north of $100 million, while the Notorious could be in line to receive $75 million.

So, this week there was perhaps a little more excitement than usual as weekly updates on this fight usually don’t result in anything becoming concrete.
However, not everyone is a fan of it, especially from the sport of boxing.

Fans are split on this, some want it to happen as they believe not only could be it be highly entertaining, but there’s always the chance that somehow, the Irishman could get the job done.
On the flip side, we have those that think it’s a joke, mainly because somebody with no professional boxing experience is potentially getting the ultimate fight in Mayweather; an opportunity others perhaps deserve more.
Saul Alvarez falls into the latter group, as he’s already been vocal about the whole thing, and he’s not a big fan of it.
Canelo is currently preparing to battle Julio Cesar Chavez Jr on Cinco de Mayo, so all eyes are understandable on him as he aims to do the business but despite his clash being in the limelight, talk of McGregor and Mayweather continues to crop up.
Highsnobiety recently caught up with the dangerous, red-haired Mexican and brought the topic up, and he made his feelings crystal clear.
He thinks it’s a big joke.
He said: “I think it’s hurting the sport of boxing. I see it as a joke.
“It’s a big circus and a joke because when a fighter from boxing gets in MMA or a fighter from MMA gets into boxing, it’s just a big joke.
“People don’t take it serious.”
Canelo has a point, as it’s all still talk at this point and it’s more of a “we’ll believe it when we see it” mentality when it comes to this fight actually happening.
However, despite his thoughts on it being a circus there’s no denying that the interest is still there.
Even if fans don’t agree with what could happen, you can bet they’d tune in, even if it would be simply out of curiosity.
