There’s been much debate about who took round one of the trash talk between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor yesterday in Los Angeles. The two renew pleasantries this afternoon at the second stop of their international press tour. Check back here throughout the week for continued stream of the press tour as it hits New York (Thursday) and wraps up in London (Friday). The fights airs on Showtime pay-per-view on Saturday August 26.

Floyd Mayweather was in rare form during an appearance today on ESPN’s First Take. Mayweather addressed a myriad on topics on Conor McGregor, a Manny Pacquiao rematch and Gennady Golovkin.

On McGregor, Mayweather says he tried to make the fight but requires $100 million. As the A-side, he’s willing to give McGregor up to $15 million and negotiate a percentage on the pay-per-view numbers. The Pacquiao rematch and possibly facing Golovkin didn’t elicit much interest from Mayweather, who dismissed Pacquiao for having a boss and GGG for struggling with Kell Brook.

You may not like his demeanor, but not many lies were told. Mayweather is all about the business side of the sport and he’s mastered it better than any fighter in history. For that reason, he gets to call the shots in any potential matchup.

Idle time is the devil’s playground. Not even a full year into his “retirement,” Floyd Mayweather is apparently entertaining another nine-figure payday. But instead of looking to boxing, Mayweather is flirting with the idea of facing UFC star Conor McGregor.

The news was shot down a few days back by Dana White, but Floyd was right back to fanning the flames last night during a Mayweather Promotions card on ShoBox. According to Mayweather, the fight will eventually happen and take place in a boxing ring.

Do you believe him, or this a bait and switch before he announces a comeback against Danny Garcia or Manny Pacquiao rematch (cringe)?
