Mayweather is willing to share the wealth for potential boxing bout.

It seems like Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor is a fight that just won’t go away. Mayweather said in his most recent appearance on ESPN’s First Take, that his team offered McGregor a guaranteed $15 million purse for the bout.

“We are willing to give him $15 million and then we can talk about splitting the percentage, the back end percentage on pay-per-view. But of course, we’re the ‘A’ side,” said Mayweather. “How can a guy talk about $20 or $30 million if he’s never made $8 or $9 million?”
