No surprise here, but Floyd Mayweather isn’t interested in Dana White’s offer to box Conor McGregor in the UFC.
In a brief interview with TMZ Sports on Friday, the retired boxing champion laughed off White’s proposal that he and McGregor receive $25 million each and a share of the pay-per-view cut for a boxing match under the UFC banner.
“He’s a f---ing comedian,” Mayweather said.
Earlier, the UFC boss appeared on “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd to make a public offer to Mayweather to face McGregor in a boxing match in response. White was responding to Mayweather’s claim that he offered McGregor a fight in which “Money” would have received $100 million and McGregor would earn $15 million.
“I’ll tell you what Floyd, here’s a real offer, and I’m the guy who can actually make the offer, and I’m actually making a real offer,” White said. “We’ll pay you $25 million, we’ll pay Conor $25 million, and then we’ll talk pay-per-view and a certain number. There is a real offer.”
Mayweather didn’t have much else to say on the subject and when asked if his response meant “no deal,” simply told TMZ to “look at my watch. You know how much that cost?” “Money” was wearing a Hublot Laferrari watch, which can cost in the neighborhood of $300,000.
Mayweather hasn’t fought since defeating Andre Berto via unanimous decision on Sept. 12, 2015. He earned a disclosed $32 million purse for that fight and retired from boxing with a career 49-0 mark.
