Money Mayweather and McGregor Fight Purse
One of the main reasons this epic fight took so long to arrange, was reportedly due to disagreements about sharing the fight purse. Although McGregor appears to have backed down a little on his demands, he is still due to make a very tidy sum.
According to various news sources, the MMA superstar stands to make at least $75m. That figure represents a fivefold increase on his usual fight earnings. As for Floyd Mayweather Jr, he is set to make a measly $100m from the bout.
Some sources expect both fighters to make way in excess of early estimates, as much as $400m and $127m for Mayweather and McGregor respectively.

Who Will Win – Mayweather or McGregor?
The man considered the best pound-for-pound boxer, before his retirement, takes on a star of MMA; so this will be a difficult one to judge. The two styles of fighting are vastly different, and also bring with them a difference of opinion.
People in boxing circles believe Mayweather will easily come out on top, possibly toying with Conor for a few rounds before putting him out of his misery. As for MMA an UFC fighters, they have nothing but respect for McGregor as an all-round fighter.
What do Fighters Think!
Ricky Hatton – Fought Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2007
The only British boxer to face the might of Mayweather in the ring, feel the fight may be a little one-sided. During an interview with BBC Radio 5 he said;
“The mixed martial arts people tell me he is fantastic because he is fearless, reckless and that makes him entertaining, but he is a hopeless boxer.
“He is a raw novice. Peter McDonagh, who has lost more times than he has won, is the Irish champion at Conor McGregor’s weight, and he would beat McGregor in a 10 or 12-round fight. This will be an absolute mismatch.”
Kevin Lee – UFC Lightweight Fighter.
Although most pundits and experts appear to favour a Mayweather whitewash, Kevin believes McGregor shouldn’t be written off so easily.
“Floyd isn’t going to knock out Conor. Conor’s a much bigger man.”
“Conor is the much better fighter overall and I think even Floyd would admit that. If we’re talking about pure martial arts fighting skill, I mean, Conor’s way… you can’t even hold a candle to it.”
Since his initial statements, Lee does think that although Conor can stand his ground, he may have met his match.
McGregor is a whole 12 years younger than his opponent, and also has an unrivalled tenacity. Mayweather has always had problems with southpaws, Conor McGregor is a southpaw who packs a punch. Whenever he hits people, they fall!
He’s won 21 of his 24 MMA fights, including 18 knockouts, but were not convinced that will be enough.
Mayweather may be 40 but that may just work in his favour. With decades of fighting experience and maintaining a peak physical condition, Floyd is an expert in dictating fights. We think despite maybe getting caught off guard on a few occasions, he will keep his composure and stick to a well strategized fight.
Our money has to go on Mayweather.
