Showtime: Mayweather v McGregor Fight NOT the Richest in Boxing History

Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor made it clear where he stands regarding speculation about a possible boxing match with Manny Pacquiao.

When Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather competed against each other in August of this year, people were really interested in seeing it.

According to a new report from Brian Campbell of CBS Sports, Showtime Sports confirmed that there were 4.3 million pay-per-views for the fight.

In a chance interview with entertainment website TMZ, McGregor said he wants to be in a "real fight". Mayweather vs. McGregor fell approximately 300k buys short of breaking the record set by 2015's contest between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

Floyd Mayweather's money-spinning clash with Conor McGregor generated 4.3 million pay-per-view buys - making it the second biggest fight in PPV history.

Showtime added that the Mayweather and McGregor fight had exceeded $600 million when global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and worldwide distribution were considered. Last week he teased of a rematch with Mayweather.

The UFC Lightweight Champion has also been linked to pro wrestling in the past, but the fighter gave a pretty simple answer when asked if there may be a future in sports entertainment.

"He's 50-0 and getting on, I'm not calling him out".

He said: "They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back".

Last month, Jesse Holland of MMA Mania reported the UFC expected McGregor to return for a matchup against Tony Ferguson at UFC 219 on December 30. I can come right back to the UFC. "Style over to my side and earn our respect now".
