Floyd Mayweather shuts down rumors of fight deal with Conor McGregor

By Jesse Reed

Well, that pretty much settles it. Floyd Mayweather, responding to the recent flood of rumors that he will fight Conor McGregor, emphatically shot them all down.

This message was sent just a while after UFC top man Dana White also said “there is no deal” for a fight between Mayweather and McGregor.

What’s interesting is that Mayweather had previously been quite involved in the build-up to what is now looking like a complete fabrication. He previously talked about how much money he would demand and how much he’d let McGregor haul in, so it’s not like the rumors were just conjured out of thin air.

But perhaps now we can all talk about real life, rather than fantasy from now on. Because let’s be real, a fight between an MMA man and a pure boxer, especially one that involved Mayweather, was just a pipe dream all along.
