Floyd Mayweather has revealed he will be making more than $300 million from his fight with Conor McGregor, meaning that he will make more than $8 million per minute in the ring.
The boxer said this at Showtime’s “All Access: Mayweather v. McGregor”, “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 4 years, or no contract for no 5 years. I can do it in 36 minutes. $300 (million) or better. In 36 minutes.” He said.
Conor on his part is expecting to rake in around $100 million for the August 26 fight.
