Floyd Mayweather has said he would be willing to fight in the UK if the ‘price was right’ but warned his going rate for an exhibition bout is ‘millions per minute’.

Mayweather retired from professional boxing after extending his unbeaten record to 50 fights against MMA star Conor McGregor in 2017.

However, Mayweather has refrained from hanging up his gloves for good and has been taking part in lucrative exhibition bouts ever since.

Mayweather fought every one of his professional fights in the US but has began to travel around the world for his exhibition bouts.

Mayweather fought Deji Olatunji in in Dubai, Don Moore in Abu Dhabi and Mikuru Asakura in Japan. He is also set to take on Tenshin Nasukawa in Tokyo this weekend.

Sportsmail decided to ask whether Mayweather would be open to fighting in the United Kingdom – to which he said yes, if the price is right.

Speaking exclusively to Sportsmail, Mayweather said: ‘We don’t know [where the rest of my bouts will take place] but of course, if the price is right then I am on my way [to the UK].

When asked about how lucrative his exhibition bouts are, Mayweather said: ‘It’s always a few million a minute.

‘From this exhibition [against Mikuru Asakura] alone I will making somewhere upwards of $15-20million. That’s just from this exhibition. So, it’s cool. Nine minutes, 20 million, not bad.’

Mayweather finished his career with a perfect 50-0 record  beating the likes of Ricky Hatton, Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor to become a household name in boxing.
