If I’m going to go out there and risk it, it’d have to be worth it.”Mayweather branded his fight against McGregor as a “business move”, with their blockbuster bout falling just 300,000 viewers short of breaking the pay-per-view world record.Addressing their encounter, he added: “That was a business move.
