Floyd Mayweather is expecting to make more than $300 Million from his fight with Conor McGregor which would break down to more than $8 Million per minute in the ring. 

According to TMZ, Mayweather spelled it all out for Showtime’s “All Access: Mayweather v. McGregor” explaining why no other professional athlete in the world is more bankable. 

“I mean, am I the highest-paid athlete out there? And just coming back? We not talking about no contract. We not talking about no contract for no 4 years, or no contract for no 5 years. I can do it in 36 minutes. $300 (million) or better. In 36 minutes.”

As for Conor, the UFC fighter is expecting to rake in around $100 Million for the August 26 superfight – but it’ll be largest payday an MMA fighter has ever made so he’s not complaining either.
