If you're wondering why FLOYD MAYWEATHER is boxing MMA star CONOR MCGREGOR later this month, he broke it down quick and simple on the first episode of Showtime's "All Access: Mayweather v. McGregor".
He said, quote, "I mean, am I the highest-paid athlete out there? . . . 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."
That's more than $8 million per MINUTE. So, easy call.
Conor will make $100 million, but he isn't complaining, because that will be the largest payday for an MMA fighter.
