Floyd Mayweather is going to get seriously paid when he steps into the ring against Conor McGregor.
According to Floyd, he will make $300 million for the fight -- which is $200 million more than Conor will take in.
He explained the situation on the All Access: Mayweather v. McGregor preview.
I mean, am I the highest-paid athlete out there? And just coming back? We not talking about no contract. We not talking about no contract for no 4 years or no contract for no 5 years. I can do it in 36 minutes. $300 (million) or better. In 36 minutes."Mayweather doesn't calculate how much money he will make per minute. (We're thinking math is not his strong suit.) But we did, and it comes to $8,333,333 a minute, assuming the fight goes the distance.

If Mayweather really makes $300 million it will be far the biggest payday in boxing history.
Floyd made between $140 -$180 million for his 2015 Fight of the Century vs. Manny Pacquiao, with Pacquiao taking in at least $96 million.
