Floyd Mayweather Talking with Showtime Exec About MMA Fight
Thu, 01 Feb 2018
TMZ SPORTS -- Floyd Mayweather is heading to Minnesota where he's set to meet with Showtime honcho Stephen Espinoza ... and the two will DEFINITELY be talking about a possible MMA fight.
"It will be a topic of conversation," Stephen told TMZ Sports ... acknowledging Floyd's recent videos from inside an MMA cage are VERY interesting.
"There's a chance ... whatever he puts his mind to, he sort of wills into happening. [Floyd] willed the McGregor fight into happening. So, if he sets his mind to it, it'll happen."
And how much money would it take to lure Floyd back?
"He's not an 8-figure guy anymore. He's a 9-figure guy," says Espinoza, the president of Showtime Sports and event programming.
Bottom line -- if Floyd wants an MMA fight, sounds like Showtime is 100% behind him.
Stay tuned ...
