Dana: Mayweather Has To Compete In Co-Branded Card
Towards the end of this year, Floyd Mayweather took to social media to not only reverse his stance on retirement but also claim that he and UFC President Dana White were working together.
“Dana White and I are working together again to bring the world another spectacular event in 2020,” Mayweather said on social media in November.
The news came after Mayweather announced he’d be fighting again in 2020, which would be his first pro fight since his 2017 win over Conor McGregor, while he fought a haphazard exhibition against kickboxer Tenshin Nasakawa for RIZIN one year ago.
“[Me and Floyd] both started talking. The easiest way to explain it to you is Floyd and I both feel that we add value to each other,” White said to ESPN of their new partnership.
“We’re going to figure something out. Some things have to play out and then I’m going to start talking to [Al] Haymon. Maybe this summer and then I’ll have something for Floyd in the fall.”
“Compete. The money is in Floyd competing,” White said of this deal. “We’ll see [about fighting Floyd in the UFC]. We’ll see where. We can do crossover stuff here or we could do something in boxing.”
