West Ham United already have arguably the toughest set of famous fans going but can now count on the support of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.
Four years ago, Andre Ward was poised to succeed Floyd Mayweather’s spot as the best prizefighter in the world, regardless of weight.
Floyd "Money" Mayweather posted a mock-up poster on Instagram on Monday teasing a fight between himself and Conor McGregor on pay-per-view.
Conor McGregor has spoken at length about his “publicized civil war” with UFC in a lengthy interview with ESPN.
On Saturday, Floyd Mayweather called a fight with Conor McGregor “possible”. As far as fights go it would be the ultimate made-for-TV sideshow, almost like a Fear Factor meets the Kardashians. It would offer little in athletic value, even less in benefit to society as well as hurting the legitimacy of the fighters’ chosen disciplines. But it would make millions. And a huge number of people would watch.
Floyd Mayweather has hinted that he may consider a return to the ring despite retiring from boxing last September.
The first weekend of May and the second weekend of September represent the most important dates on the boxing calendar, the traditional stomping grounds of the sport’s biggest star.
It is fair to say that Ronda Rousey and Floyd Mayweather have rarely seen eye to eye.
