Floyd Mayweather told Sky Sports that he would love for the Badou Jack vs James Degale fight to be hosted in the UK in September.
When asked about the options for the fight, the great fighter who is now retired told SSN “It has to be in the UK. It has to” but then hinted that it all depends on the money it makes by stating “If it makes money then it makes sense”.
Mayweather said that Jack and Degale are both great fighters and great gentlemen as well as “We look forward to coming over there and having a great relationship with everyone over in the UK and bringing championship boxing to the highest heights”
The retired champ (49-0) has reportedly had a few meeting with Al Haymon and Eddie Hearn concerning Mayweather Promotions hosting shows with Matchroom in the UK and James Degale is promoted by Matchroom so this would make perfect sense to me. The winner of Jack vs Degale will have to face Callum Smith due to him being the mandatory challenger for the WBC title.
