McGregor: After I Win - Showtime Will Offer Me Deal, Dump Floyd

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. will earn perhaps nine-figure paydays while fight fans will be charged $100 to watch on TV in high def and can’t get into the arena for anything less than a $500 face-value ticket —if they’re lucky.

Their four city tour ended Friday with its fourth stop in London for the fight, which many experts believe will be lopsided for the undefeated Mayweather.

The hype could go down as a more entertaining time than the 154-pound fight Aug. 26 in Las Vegas. The fighters can entertain as much as anything on Broadway.

Mutual respect between the fighters has suffered a resounding KO.

“I don’t think these guys necessarily hated each other before we started this thing,” White said at the start of the tour. “But by the time we leave London, they might not necessarily like each other very much.”

Mayweather, now 40-years-old, returns to the ring from a two-year retirement. He last saw action in September 2015, after dominating Andre Berto over twelve rounds.

McGregor, the UFC's biggest star, has never had a professional boxing match.

He believes in his ability to pull off what might be the biggest upset in boxing history. And McGregor also expects Showtime - who have worked exclusively with Mayweather since 2013 - to offer him contract to continue boxing. He predicts the network will have their checkbook wide open, as a win would make him the biggest name in both combat sports.

“Look, it’s all business here. And eventually, I’m going to run Showtime, too, if they want me back in the boxing game once I spank Floyd – because Floyd’s gone. Floyd doesn’t have much left. Then who has Showtime got? They’re going to look to dump him and come after me. So they just better get used to it and get their act together and be very careful with how they treat me," McGregor said.

What really hurts me about all of this is that a man, who has never boxed in his life, is getting a shot that any boxer, who has spent his life earning that shot, would dream of. I, for one,…

Wait what about the UFC? Wonder what Dana white has to say about this. LMAO Win or lose I doubt he ever fights in the UFC again. Man was crying about money and threatening to retire long before anyone talked…
