Earlier this week Dana White estimated that Conor McGregor will earn $75 million for his boxing mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr, but ‘The Notorious’ has now claimed he’ll bank considerably more than that.

According to the Irish star in an Instagram post, White’s projection was based on a conservative number of how many pay-per-view buys the event will muster, but if it seels as many PPV’s as McGregor believes it will then he has estimated that he’ll be looking at a payday north of $100 million.

Meanwhile, McGregor has also posted footage of himself giving one of his protege’s some boxing tips, while also revealing that he also plans to train his soon-to-be-born son to become a future champion.

“When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also,”
McGregor wrote. “Just like his old man. I look forward to it.

Here is a reply video I sent one of my protégés who was seeking advice on some boxing only pad work footage they sent me. I believe you will like it. The focus has been solely boxing lately but make no mistakes, the kicking and grappling aspects, and everything else got to do with unlimited free fighting, is still very much present in my thoughts. Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something. But whatever that’s another conversation. I like to build fighters and watch their progression. I have built many to this date, and all unintentionally. One is fighting in the UFC main event this weekend. When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.
