Floyd Mayweather close to fighting this UFC legend

Manny Pacquiao

Stepping into the boxing ring in a bid to secure lucrative paydays has become a common move for UFC fighters of late.

For example, Conor McGregor faced Floyd Mayweather in a clash that earned both parties a colossal one-off pay packet.

Yet, one UFC legend has snubbed the opportunity to fight Mayweather, one of boxing’s most infamous names.

Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre revealed in an interview with TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter that he has been presented the chance to fight Floyd Mayweather on multiple occasions.

He explained that he turned down the offers due to the fact that they wouldn’t agree to let him either kick or take Mayweather down.

St-Pierre enjoyed a long stretch of his career when he was one of the leading wrestlers in mixed martial arts, yet this supposedly distracted him from his kickboxing career.

Floyd Mayweather vs Georges St-Pierre: Will it ever happen?

A fight between St-Pierre and Mayweather could prove interesting as the Canadian could be the mixed martial artist that finally persuades a boxer to accept the offer of a kickboxing tie.

Floyd Mayweather is now 46 and St-Pierre has not entered the ring in six years, yet fans are excited by the prospect of seeing the pair agree to take one another on.
