Vegas Star Floyd Mayweather May Be Planning The Biggest UFC Crossover Fight In History
He wrote, "Coming out of retirement in 2020."
Less than a month ago, it was announced that Dana White made a huge deal with a boxing legend during a Laker's game. Now, there is talk that the Las Vegas star Floyd Mayweather may be planning a UFC crossover fight sometime next year. If this were to happen, it'd be the biggest brawl in history.
Rewind to Wednesday, November 20 when the UFC Chairman and boxing champion made headlines for their "business talk" during the Clipper's game.
TMZ reported that both men made a , right then and there. Dana didn't spill the beans during his interview with ESPN but he did say, "Some things have to play out, and then I'm going to start talking to [Mayweather's promoter Al] Hayman maybe this summer and then I'll have something for Floyd in the fall."
We're hopeful that means an upcoming fight is set in the future, but only time will tell.
White also made it apparent that Floyd would be a competitor, not a partner if any fights were to take place. The last crossover fight occurred on August 26, 2017, when he went up against Conor McGregor and won.
Dana was asked what it would take for him to make another fight like that happen. He responded with, "It will be interesting to see if we start to see that kind of demand again with any kind of crossover fight."
It seems that there must be a lot of money involved for a match like that to transpire.
After Floyd shook hands with White on the court in November, he took to his Instagram to post the above photo.
His caption read, "Coming out of retirement in 2020." If that's not a hint that he'll be back in the ring, then we don't know what is.
Mayweather has yet to respond to White's recent interview but if he does, we're hoping it's to announce an epic 2020 fight.
