Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather has been making significant media rounds on television and elsewhere this week ahead of his fighter Badou Jack’s super-middleweight world title unification with James DeGale this weekend in New York.
But although the former pound for pound number one boxer’s fighter that he promotes is the one competing this weekend, as always, most of the questions have surrounded Mayweather, and in particular, a potential showdown with UFC star Conor McGregor.
