Floyd Mayweather rules out the possibility of a fight with Conor McGregor
It's not going to happen.
Floyd Mayweather says that a potential $100m fight with Conor McGregor is now off the table.
"I tried to make the fight happen but we [weren't] able to, so we must move on." Mayweather told FightHype.com.
"I feel honoured to be the biggest name in MMA and in boxing, and I don't even compete no more."
McGregor had said he wanted the fight but only if Mayweather could come up with the necessary purse to make it happen.
He is running around the Showtime offices, begging those executives to come up with the $100m cash he needs to fight me," the Irishman said last month. "As soon as he gets my money, we can fight."
With McGregor contracted to the UFC, any fight would have been subject to approval by the group.
