Mayweather has driven speculation with a series of social media posts that went to Instagram to promote “Mayweather McGregor 2, 2020”.
The undefeated boxing legend provided more clarity and recently spoke as a guest on the Drink Champs podcast.
“I was even talking about the fight against Khabib and Conor on the same day,” Mayweather revealed.
‘Khabib during the day and Conor at night. You pay a fee, probably $ 250 (£ 190), and you get both fights. “

“We will see what happens. The discussions are always ongoing. They never stop, “he said.
“You know that Floyd goes through money quickly. He is far from retired and that rematch will happen at some point. “
