From Mayweather's point of view, the fight should be an uncomplicated negotiation as he is his own boss, runs his own promotional firm Mayweather Promotions, and can effectively guarantee McGregor a career-high payday.
"My bet is that the fight will happen".
Bisping did not suggest Mayweather needs the cash, but instead wanted to use the fight purse to replace the colossal figure he was swindled out of.
White acknowledged what Mayweather had long since repeatedly noted: that a fight with McGregor would generate huge public interest and therefore massive revenue.
"The number was very, very big".
If the fight is finalized, McGregor would undoubtedly walk into his first professional boxing match as a massive underdog to Mayweather, who retired in 2015 with a ideal 49-0 record and was regarded as one of the best boxers in his generation.
"It's a disrespect for boxing, for the public and for [Mayweather], but I do not blame him. if there is money, if they chose the fighter that's fine, but that fighter cannot even beat me". TMZ caught up with White and questioned whether a bout with Mayweather is still a possibility for the charismatic Irishman. If it does happen, Mayweather vs. McGregor is likely to eclipse every PPV in buys with the exception of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.
White said that he and McGregor, 28, haven't talked about fighting during the UFC lightweight champion's current break from the octagon as he and longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin await the birth of their first child in April.
Bisping continued that Mayweather lost a big amount of money. Or would the potential win against McGregor just be another boost to his oversized ego and bank accounts.
He seems more committed to it than ever before, and there have even been rumors about Mayweather and McGregor putting a hold on T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for June 10 for a fight.
