Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor is hoping to score a multimillion dollar payday by boxing undefeated pugilist Floyd Mayweather Jr., because combat sports is a joke and we should all laugh.

Longtime “Golden Boy” Oscar de la Hoya thinks it’s a circus that could torpedo the “sweet science” (those comments here) and another ex-champ, “Sugar” Ray Leonard, believes the crossover bout is total trash.

“To boxing purists, it’s garbage,” Leonard told Fight Hub TV. “To fans in general, it’s the fight of a lifetime.”

He should try writing about it 17 times a day.

While McGregor has agreed to terms for a potential showdown, Mayweather is still mulling it over. That means we’re no closer to bout agreements than we were when “Money” was pulling this same shtick with Ronda Rousey.

Sigh … good times.
