Dana White blasts boxing legend over Mayweather-McGregor stance

You're gonna put on a fight like that and then call McGregor-Mayweather a money grab when you were trying to make that fight four months ago!

"To me, it would be disrespectful for boxing if a UFC fighter who has zero experience in boxing came and fought Floyd Mayweather", De La Hoya said.

"We haven't even got there yet", White said of discussing financial parameters with Mayweather's camp, per MMAFighting.com's Marc Raimondi. It's not happening. Even in a Marvel superhero universe where there are alternate realities and diverging timelines, Mayweather doesn't lose a boxing match to McGregor.

We doubt the war of words is over.

McGregor also confirmed he had signed a "record breaking deal" to allow him to make the move to boxing.

Oil trades below US$50 as market pessimism over OPEC deal lingers
West Texas intermediate crude futures ended 4.8 percent lower at $48.90 a barrel, breaking below $50 for the first time all week. Brent for July settlement was 11 cents lower at US$52.04 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange.

The biggest ongoing story in combat sports today surrounds a possible boxing mega fight between undefeated great Floyd Mayweather and UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor.

'He would like me to be part of his camp for the fight if it happens.

The planned McGregor-Mayweather bout drew criticism from boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya, saying boxing will not recover from it once the fight pushes through. And I'm not just being arrogant. "We have the tools to do that", he said in his first-ever appearance at the weekly Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum at the Golden Phoenix Hotel near Mall of Asia.

How do you think a fight between Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao would go? McGregor is nearly certainly the best pound-for-pound MMA fighter. UFC President Dana White is apparently now working diligently to reach an agreement with the boxer and his team. "And talk about two-faced and contradicting, and the list goes on-and-on, and hating, and like he has no confidence in his fight". I like the fight, I'll watch the fight. The 40-year-old Mayweather last fought in September 2015 with a close win over Andre Berto.

"I'd pay to see the press conference", Alonso said. White thought De La Hoya's criticism showed insecurity about the Canelo-GGG fight. If he had the last fighter on Earth and I had the last fighter on Earth, I wouldn't do a deal with that guy.
