"I have my time, I have my age, and this is the age of these young fighters. But for me, it is enough to play a Habib or McGregor. I made 600 million in these two games. U.S. dollars, and it won’t be hurt.” Mayweather said, McGregor or Habib each took out 300 million U.S. dollars, and he agreed to come back to the showdown.
When asked what mistake McGregor made in the first crossover battle, Mayweather said: “He knows what he did wrong, he knows what he did right, and his mistake is I played against each other. Of course, what he did right was to participate in the game with me because he got a lot of money.” Regarding whether to communicate and communicate with McGregor, Mayweather said: “No, I’m not at all I like him."
