While we might not see Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather soon, we can enjoy this parody of the fight in the meantime!
To kick off 2017, undefeated Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather made UFC superstar Conor McGregor an offer to fight him in the boxing ring for $15 million dollars. The offer was a rather low one as Mayweather reiterated that he wouldn’t fight for less than $100 million.
While Conor McGregor didn’t fire back at Maywather over the situation, UFC President Dana White was quick to respond as he made Mayweather a counter-offer. White stated that Mayweather and McGregor could both earn $25 million, and the pair could discuss the inevitable pay-per view split.
Mayweather of course was quick to respond to White, stating that the UFC President was a comedian as he shot down the $25 million dollar offer, once again reiterating that his number was $100 million. This led to White firing back, saying:
“First of all, Floyd thinks he’s so much bigger than Conor, he’s wrong. Listen, Floyd’s gone undefeated for 20 years, I give him all the credit in the world for doing that. Conor’s been around for 3 or 4 years, for him to think that he’s a much bigger star than Conor isn’t true. I’m not gonna pay him way more money than I’m gonna pay my guy.”
“Let me tell you what, we all know $25 million dollars isn’t peanuts, and so does he. He’s hanging his watch out the window, his watch is the problem. When you’re wearing a watch that’s $250,000, you’re gonna need $25 million real quick pal. Real quick. Hey Floyd, taxes are coming up too buddy.”
“Floyd said that he made an offer. He never made an offer. It’s not true. I made an offer, okay. So if you’re serious, there’s a real offer. Where do we go from here Floyd?”
Now, the potential boxing match has received the ‘Mike Tyson Punch-Out’ treatment, which you can see above!
