Here we go again.
In the latest attempt to try and get legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. into some sort of ring with epic UFC fighter Conor McGregor, the former undefeated fighter told ESPN that the Irishman should stop all the talk and just "sign the papers."
"If Conor McGregor really wants this fight to happen, stop blowing smoke up everybody's ass."
"Sign the paper. Sign the paper. You said you were boss, so just sign the paper and let's make it happen."
Currently on a UK tour, rumors of a superfight between Mayweather and McGregor continue to swirl, especially after a recent Instagram video showed Conor McGregor in the boxing ring following his successful application for a boxing license in California in December.
While there have been plenty of words spoken between the two men—with Floyd mocking Conor's net worth—fans are still waiting in anticipation to see if the bout will ever actually happen.
As recently as mid-February, Anthony Marnell, the Nevada State Athletic Commission chairman, still has his reservations:
"There is a lot of real stuff going on," Marnell said Tuesday. "It still seems like a long shot, but when there is a lot of money involved, people tend to figure it out. There are a lot of cooks in the kitchen, but I'm not sure if we're going to eat."
With Floyd Mayweather's latest attempt for Conor McGregor to put his money where his mouth is, let's all hope it finally leads to some real movement in this thing—because it'd be the fight of the century.
