Over the past few months, there's literally be no shortage of drama surrounding Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. At all. The two are consistently throwing metaphorical jabs at each other, both calling one another out for back and forth. The potential of this superfight happening still sounds like it's a bit unlikely, but at least now we're getting some idea that maybe Mayweather is actually on board.
Originally, Mayweather seemed to have little interest in it, even turning down massive paydays. But in an interview with FightHype on Friday, the boxer doubled down on some comments he made earlier in the week about the potential fight.
Mayweather had some words directed right at McGregor, and they were pretty simple: Sign the contract.
“So just letting the world know that he’s full of s**t and he don’t really want to fight. ‘Oh, I want to fight, I want to fight, I want to fight. Mayweather’s scared of me.’ Listen, I’m my own boss, so let’s make the fight happen. You talking all that s**t, you acting like you want to fight, I don’t think you really want to fight. Sign the contract, let’s make it happen.”
Mayweather not only sounds ready to fight, but he seems incredibly tired of the ever-swirling rumors of a potential superfight. For him, at this point, it seems like it either needs to be on, or everyone just needs to stop talking about it.
To top it all off, the boxer made it known that whether or not the two fight doesn't really matter all that much to him. Pointing out that he doesn't need the money (which would be massive) and that he's just fine either way.
“With or without Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather is still going to get seven figures every month for the rest of his life and still live a lavish life,” said Mayweather.
There are a whole lot of fans out there who are hoping to see Mayweather and McGregor square off, but first, we need to see pen put to paper, just like the boxer said. There's still not a major reason to believe that this fight happens, but until there's a clear-cut "no" from one of the sides, we can all still hold out hope on the potential of things working out.
