The astronomical bags of money from the Mayweather-McGregor fight

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor made their fight official, which will take place on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Whatever the outcome, both fighters will secure an exorbitant sum of money.
The American will return from retirement only to fight the UFC’s top star, who will earn a figure twice less than what the undefeated boxing world champion hopes to achieve.
“Throughout my career I made 800 million dollars and it is possible that I can make another $ 300 million,” said the 40-year-old fighter with a smile, referring to what he intends to win from the fight with Conor McGregor.
Hours after the announcement of the fight, “Money” appeared at the premiere of the film All Eyez on Me and acknowledged that he hopes to win between 200 and 300 million dollars. “I think I am one of the highest paid athletes in history,” he declared on IFL TV, comparing himself to Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and LeBron James.
The imposing figure that the Irishman will raise will undoubtedly change his life, but the 100 million dollars he will collect are minimized by the numbers of his rival.
Dana White, president of the UFC, confirmed that the fight will be 12 rounds and that McGregor “is very excited. He believes with all his heart that he will bring down Mayweather. ” (Infobae)
