Floyd Mayweather starts $10k caption competition provoking Conor McGregor

Read the latest development in the potential Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor fight

There has been lots of hype around a potential Mayweather v McGregor match up. Both men know a thing or two about how to promote themselves and drum up interest in their fights.

The latest installment in this on going saga comes as Floyd Mayweather has gone to Instagram in order to troll the Dublin born UFC star.

McGregor’s future in the UFC is somewhat uncertain after he obtained a boxing licence in the state of California earlier this month. This move sent speculation of a potential fight into over drive, match that with Mayweather’s trolling today and you’d have every reason to believe a potential fight could take place between the two.

We have priced up a potential fight and make Floyd overwhelming 1/7 favourite with McGregor 4/1 to cause an upset.

Whether this Instagram post is just a case of Floyd having a laugh or a geninue attepmt to kick start the promnotional efforts for a potential fight remains to be seen. We await McGregor’s response with baited breath that is for sure.

CAPTION THIS! Best caption wins $10,000.00. The winner will be announced on Monday, Dec 19. Stay tuned ! #TMT
