    You dont need to be short on cash to fight for 500$ millions. I bet you can get bill gates to fight for 500$ millions.

    They're following in AJ/Ruiz footsteps if it happens in Saudi Arabia, they've got big money to offer

    That is not going to happen, the fight will take place in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand. There is no chance that Floyd will fight anywhere other than Las Vegas unless it's against a 109 lb kickboxer who can't use kicks.

    For half of billion dollars, sure he would.
    His name is Money, remember.

    You'd be wrong. The only thing Bill Gates values now is time.

    I would be willing to place a bet that Floyd will not fight a legitimate boxer out side of Las Vegas. He isn't going to get $500 million.

    Al Haymon: They're stealing the limelight away from us by holding AJ vs Ruiz in Saudi Arabia! That means only one thing..

    *Calls up Floyd for the 1000th time ever*

    Al Haymon: How about it then Floyd? We'll throw some money at you to face another old bloke with a walking stick and we can stink the place out in an arena full of rich people who don't know what they're watching.

    Floyd: Sounds good. Seems like the best way to ruin AJ vs Ruiz' party and make it all about US!

    *Ends call*

    It feels like nearly every year Floyd gets this call now, it's becoming a joke. We don't need a rematch because the reason the first one was boring was because they were both old men who had nothing left to give. ENOUGH OF THIS GARBAGE. Will..you...just...retire?

    Tell him that he wil be able to donate the money for more charity and you will have him with the gloves on in less than a minute. Specially if his wife tells him so. 500$ millions is no joke, not for me, not for floyd, not for bill gates, not for anyone no matter how much money he has.

    I think you're still wrong. 500m is nothing to him. He wouldn't risk his health for it and if he wants to give 50bn to a project he can without a second thought as to whether or not he could actually afford to.

    Comparing Floyd to Bill Gates is absurd.

    He's worth 100 billion. Half a billion is still meaningfull. Tough, I think you are right, he wouldnt risk his health for 0.5% of his fortune.

    It's about perspective. Mayweather's idea of money is very different to anyone posting on this forum and Gate's is probably even more far removed from Mayweather's than his is alien to us.

    Anyway there's a chance of Mayweather ending up broke and he knows it which is why he's still interested in these farce match ups.

    500, lmao. The first fight didn't make that and the 2nd fight won't come near what the first one made.

    Not even the Saudi are that stupid with their money.
