Although insiders don’t believe it, both Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are both hyping the rumored fight.
Following initial reports, the fighters are now fanning the flames of the rumor mill.
Mayweather, when asked about the rumors recently, told FightHype.com: “It’s possible. It was a name that was shot at me. The rumors that y’all been hearing is the rumors that I started. It may not be a rumor, keep y’all fingers crossed, it may be a boxer versus an MMA fighter.”
He followed by saying it’d take “$100 million or better” to get real conversations started.
Over the weekend, McGregor posted faux fight poster to both his Instagram page and Twitter account, captioned, “MMA vs. Boxing.”
