Floyd Mayweather is not taking anything for granted demanding $600million for his comeback 2020 fight with Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The Money Man earning a whopping £300m when he fought with the Notorious Irish fighter back in 2017.
Now the undefeated boxing king is working closely with UFC President Dana King to arrange a rematch with McGregor and Khabib on the same day.
But if that must happen, Mayweather is looking at making the highest pay-per-view event in boxing's history.
"Like we talked about on social media, there’s two names right now.
"We talked about the Conor McGregor fight, we talked about the Khabib fight.
"For myself, the number is $600m. If I’m going to go out there and risk it, it’d have to be worth it," Mayweather said at an event at London's York Hall, promoted by DKM Promotions.
Reflecting on his bout with McGregor in 2017, Mayweather also discussed how his career earning have continued to rise since taking charge of his own career.
"Last time we went from $250m to $300m and hopefully we can break that this year," he declared.
Mayweather won by fight via a tenth round knockout, and he branded his win as a "business move" and explained how potential opponents must have a "whole country" behind them.
"That was a business move," he said of his first fight with McGregor.
"In the boxing world as of right now, it doesn’t make sense for me to fight any ordinary fighter. I’m a business man. The Conor McGregor fight made sense. If it makes money, it makes sense.
"I don’t fight fighters or compete against competitors that only have cities behind them. If I’m going to fight you, you have to have a whole country behind you.
"The first fight was entertaining. It’s an entertainment business."
