Dana White and Floyd Mayweather were famously photographed sitting courtside at an LA Clippers vs. Boston Celtics NBA game in Los Angeles.  But that was back in December 2019, well before COVID-19 caused a global pandemic. White had said at the time of the meeting that he had an agreement with Mayweather to work together in 2020, but that never happened. White said last summer that he had some talks going on with Mayweather, but so far, those talks have gone nowhere.

Speaking to ESPN, White was asked about Floyd, suggesting that there have been no further talks with the boxing legend because of COVID-19’s global impact.

The world imploded after we were talking about doing some things together. I’m just focused on running my business right now,” White said.

During an interview with TMZ, Dana White said that he was having some talks with Mayweather.
