Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather exchanged barbs in separate TMZ street interviews earlier this week, fueling speculation that the gossip site may be pushing the two brash personalities into a mega fight.
While such an intriguing showdown still seems unlikely, McGregor has now expressed willingness to fight Mayweather under boxing rules -- for a price.
"Floyd's not ready for this," McGregor told revelers at 1 OAK in NYC. "Much respect to Floyd. He's a solid businessman on what he's been able to do, he's a fucking animal at what he's been able to do. But as far as real fighting, as far as true pure unarmed combat, Floyd don't want none of this." "He wants a boxing match, he doesn't want a fight," he said. "I want $100 million cash to fight him under boxing rules, because he's afraid of a real fight."Would McGregor stand a chance against Mayweather in a boxing ring?
