Conor McGregor has suggested Floyd Mayweather is afraid to face him in the octagon, but will accept a boxing match if he gets $100 million for the fight.
The Irishman became a two-weight UFC champion in New York and has been linked with a possible move to boxing to take on the undefeated Mayweather.

Mayweather retired at 49 fights unbeaten, but McGregor has hinted the American is too scared to face him in a real fight.
‘Floyd’s not ready for this. Much respect to Floyd, he’s a solid businessman.
‘What he has been able to do, he’s a fu***** animal at what he’s been able to do but as far as real fighting, as far as true, pure unarmed combat — Floyd don’t want none of this,’ McGregor said.

‘He does not want none of this.’
McGregor was speaking to the crowd at 1 Oak in New York as he continues to tear through the Big Apple celebrating his historic achievement in the UFC.
Mayweather was not happy with suggestions McGregor was the MMA version of himself and said he was an ‘elephant’ while the Irishman was an ‘ant’.
McGregor, however, is happy to fight Mayweather whether it is in the ring or in the cage and has named his price.
‘He wants it under boxing rules. He wants a boxing match. He doesn’t want a fight,’ McGregor shouted to the crowd.
‘Tell Floyd and Showtime, I’m coming.
‘Tell him to go to them Showtime offices.
‘I want $100 million cash to fight you under boxing rules cause he’s afraid of a real fight.’
