Fresh off his latest triumph, UFC champion Conor McGregor continues to call out boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and attempt to lure him into a bout.
McGregor called Mayweather “afraid” and demanded $100 million for a showdown between the two during an appearance in a New York nightclub on Tuesday.
“As far as real fighting — true, pure unarmed combat — Floyd don’t want none of this,” McGregor said, in a video published by TMZ. “I want the $100 million cash to fight him in boxing rules because he’s afraid of a real fight.”
Talk of a possible fight between the two headliners of their sport picked up steam in the spring with both stoking the idea.
But in more recent days, Mayweather has dismissed the notion.
