Mayweather, a former multi-weight world champion who retired in 2015 with a 49-0 record, is coming back to face McGregor on August 26, three weeks before Golovkin's middleweight showdown with Mexican Saul "Canelo" Alvarez at the same Las Vegas venue.
That way, BIG3 fans get to see what they came for - slightly unimpressive, out-of-practice basketball being played, and Mayweather and McGregor get to see who's better (at something, anyway).
As good as Conor McGregor can fight, many would argue that he can talk even better.
"Maybe a amusing show, or circus show: everybody knows".
McGregor responded with a grin: "If you're asking would I like to fight Floyd Mayweather, I mean, who would not like to dance around the ring for $180 million?"
Since the match will adopt the rules in boxing, McGregor is imagined to be at a disadvantage as he will not be able to use kicks, which were proven vital in some of his biggest victories in the UFC.
Now, he is out of retirement to take on the UFC lightweight champion in an historic boxing match.More news: Champions Trophy 2017: Pakistan stun England to reach final
Mayweather promotes Davis and has often tipped him to be the next big thing in boxing.
Only one world title ― the WBO ― will not be on the line when the pair collide, but the victor on Monday was offered the chance to fight for it later this year. Who knows how much of that figure has to be distributed around to various parties, venue managers and other people, but know that there was a heap of it that went straight to Floyd's pocket. I don't think he dances around anyway.
"I really don't want to comment about that fight".
"Floyd will stop him".
Saunders was linked to fighting Golovkin in his homeland of Kazakhstan on June 10, but the fight never happened.
"This is the fight the fans wanted, demanded", Alvarez told reporters in London. "Hell, if I don't take any punishment after my fight, I would like to fight the next UFC star on the undercard". But that price did not last long at all, as bettors wasted no time in backing their opinion up with their money. "Throughout my career I made 800 and it's possible I can make another 300", Mayweather is reported to have said since the announcement.
