Former boxing world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. and current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor have continued to go at it all week long. While many of the comments made by both men have been deemed “not safe for work,” the tandem of heralded fighters have been meeting with the media after each press conference as well.
Most recently, thanks to an event at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Mayweather noted that his business prowess may be at an all-time high.
“This move I made right here, it’s unbelievable,” Mayweather said on Thursday during a post-press conference question and answer session. “They’re gonna talk about this business move at Harvard. They’re gonna talk about this business move at Harvard. So I want you guys to keep believing what they say. They call me every name in the book. ‘He can’t write, he can’t spell, he can’t read.’ Keep believing in all of that. Obviously I’m doing something right if I made $800 million with no endorsement deal.”
Mayweather will be welcoming “The Notorious” to the world of professional boxing at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on August 26. It is also worth mentioning that the former world champion is a perfect 49-0 as it stands today.
“I’ve talked about this before,” Mayweather added. “I commend and take my hat off to all those young champions. This move that I made right here is not on the chess board — it’s controlling the chess board. I can easily fight any fighter, anybody — I can fight one of you guys — and make $35 million.”
