Floyd Mayweather and Dana White ‘have a deal’

Boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC President Dana White are back in business together, preparing an event for 2020.

Their first collaboration was an unprecedented crossover when former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor (21-4 MMA, 0-1 boxing) went up against “Money” Mayweather (50-0, 27 KO) in a boxing match in August 2017. The latter won the fight via stoppage in the tenth round and the rest is history.

Floyd Mayweather recently posted a photo on Instagram where he is seen with White at the Boston Clippers vs. LA Celtics basketball game on November 21, 2019.

“Dana White and I working together again to bring the world another spectacular event in 2020,” he wrote in the caption.

Dana White confirmed the above on the Jim Rome Show today, revealing that if all goes their way they “would be doing something in October or November” next year.

“It’s true. We sat at the Clippers game. We started talking and we literally got a deal done right there on the court,” Dana White said.

“[We] shook hands, we have a deal. And if things play out the way things Floyd and I think they will, then I will probably sit down with Al Haymon [manager to Floyd Mayweather] and I would say March, and get a deal on paper.”

When asked if he wanted to share any details, White said “Let’s see how the next few months play out and we could be doing something fun, probably”.

“If everything goes our way, Floyd and I would be doing something in October or November [of 2020].”

White also spoke the return of Conor McGregor who takes on Donald Cerrone at welterweight in the headliner of UFC 246, as well as his plan to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov in the rematch.
