If I could pick an easy $300 million, absolutely”, he said. “Same way, same results.”
Mayweather explains his demand for such a high price!
Mayweather justified the whooping price saying he will need that kind of money to fight a young and hungry McGregor or someone “less experienced” like Khabib Nurmagomedov! He even said that he will fight both of them as well.
“Your health is your wealth,” he said. “So as far as me going out there and competing against a guy like Conor McGregor, or a guy that’s really inexperienced— absolutely [I’d fight Khabib Nurmagomedov]. Those are $300 million fights.“You have to make it make sense,” he added. “Real sense. Certain types of dollars. I need to have my faculties also. I had my time. I had my era. It’s these young fighters’ era now. It’s OK for me to go fight a Khabib or a Conor – with those two fights alone, I could pick up $600 million. That doesn’t hurt to fight guys that just entertain. It’s all entertainment.”
“Conor McGregor can’t punch,” he said. “He can’t punch. I don’t even remember [the uppercut]. I’m having fun. I was like this dude punch so soft.”
“He knows what he did wrong, but he also knows what he did right,” Mayweather added. “What he did wrong was get in the ring with me. What he did right was get in the ring with me so he could get a big payday.”
