UK businessman Oliver Hickey who is behind the social media website UnicornHunterz.com told FightBookMMA that Floyd “Money” Mayweather has been offered a sponsorship deal of $2,000,000 (USD).
Hickey told us that Mayweather will get KO’d by Conor McGregor and that’s why he’s so confident that he offered Mayweather $1,000,000 per boot and they want the logo to be placed on the bottom of Mayweather’s boots.
