Bob Arum: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is ridiculous, shouldn't be allowed

Bob Arum gives his take on the rumors of Floyd Mayweather possibly fighting Conor McGregor.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum catches up with Marcos Villegas of FightHub for a few moments to talk about the possibility of a Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch while also touching on all of the hubbub about a Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight. Arum didn't have as much to say as he usually does, but he does drop a few quotes. Check it out.

Arum on whether Top Rank's reported settlement in a lawsuit against Al Haymon could pave the way for a Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch:

"...My guy Manny Pacquiao is a senator from the Philippines."

On Mayweather saying he wants to fight Conor McGregor:

"That's ridiculous. You know, McGregor is a MMA guy and that's a different sport than boxing. And if McGregor fought [Mayweather] as a boxer it's a joke, shouldn't be allowed."

On a fight like that happening before with Muhammad Ali facing Antonio Inoki:

"That wasn't real, believe me, I promoted it...I don't want to talk about it."
