Conor McGregor calls out Floyd Mayweather, challenges him to sign deal
Conor McGregor has signed his end of a deal for a potential fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr, and he is now challenging the undefeated boxer to do the same.
On Sunday, McGregor shared a photo from one of his workouts and told Mayweather to sign his side of the contract to prove he is more than “just a mouth.”
Solid work today.

While McGregor working out a deal with UFC president Dana White eliminates one huge obstacle, it does not mean the fight is on the verge of happening. We all saw how long it took the bout between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao to come together, and there will be as much money — if not more — at stake for Mayweather vs. McGregor.
Mayweather is 49-0 in his career, and there is a growing belief that he wants to make it 50-0 before officially retiring. Even though another boxing legend is challenging him to forget about the McGregor fight in favor of a different match, it’s tough to imagine Mayweather walking away from the potential payday he would get from the McGregor fight. He should be able to win the fight with ease and pocket a record amount of money. Not many people could say no to that.
