Whether Floyd is broke or not, fighting Conor is the easiest money he can possibly make so why not? Floyd is just doing what he does best which is marketing himself, at least he backs it up, unlike Askren.

Exactly. Theres a reason he wore a ski mask the first fight and hes lookin for another easy bank rob.

Well I'll fight Conor for $100m+ too.
Im much braver than Floyd. I'll fight him under MMA rules.

Dana, make it happen.

Easy work when you are getting 100 million to slap around a guy that has no business being in there.

Floyds spending habits and his habitual tax liens are prettty legendary by now. He takes fights/exhibitons because he needs money.

He would be diving for a take down so fast you would've thought he was an Olympian wrestler

Askren's predictions have been way off lately. Nothing to see here.

I would probably agree with that prediction if Conor didn't already stand with him for several rounds in boxing.

Why not?  Be like Jordan getting paid 10 million to win a pick up game against some college star

Pacquiao was also reputed to have some major tax issues in the Phillipines, not sure where he stands now

He played with Conor. Those rabbit punches were a thing of beauty

Any legit sources or references to Floyd (or Pacquiao) for that matter being broke? Pac's tax issues were in the news years ago, not sure about now though. Also Pac was reputed to be too loose with his money and having too big an entouage, etc. Is he vying for big fights in boxing still?

You mean you don't want Conor to carry Floyd for 90% of the fight before deciding it was time to KO him?

It's fairly well known in Las Vegas that Floyd flies through money.  At the McGregor fight there were 3 lawyers ringside waiting for checks.
