We’re just over three weeks away from one of the most hyped, anticipated and frankly, bizarre sporting events many of us will see in our lifetime.
Love it or loathe it, you will likely tune into Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena on August 26 and for the unexpected and reasonable pay-per-view price, it’s difficult to find too many reasons not watch the events that will unfold.
With Sky Sports securing the broadcasting rights in this part of the world, fully expect the hype-machine to go into overdrive (as if the four city press tour wasn’t bad enough) – you might want to put your head in the sand for the next three weeks until the fight actually takes place.
Both fighters are fully immersed in their training camps ahead of the fight and most of the soundbites we receive from either Mayweather or McGregor are generally from their social media accounts. However, Mayweather has recently provided an interview to Showtime’s “All Access: Mayweather v. McGregor” where he speaks about, you guessed it, money.
It’s no secret that Mayweather is to receive a sizeable chunk more of cash for the fight than his Irish rival and the 40-year-old had no problem reiterating this to the world, for the umpteenth time.
“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 four years or no contract for no five years. I can do it in 36 minutes. $300 (million) or better. In 36 minutes.”
In fact, when Mayweather is explaining the amount of money he is to receive for one night’s work, for some unexplained reason he actually starts to take out cash from a conveniently located backpack, why? Who knows what goes on in the mind of Mr Mayweather. But just look at how happy it makes him.
