Floyd Mayweather wants two more fights and eyes Saul Alvarez after Conor McGregor

FLOYD MAYWEATHER is eyeing Conor McGregor and Saul Alvarez in two more money-spinning fights.

The retired American boxer wants one more bout to break Rocky Marciano's 49-0 record - and then another to pocket around half a billion dollars.

Reliable sources revealed how a fight between the five-division world champ and the Irish UFC star is on the verge of being completed.

But another mega-money bout could take place with WBC world middleweight champ Mexican Alvarez.

And Mayweather and Alvarez have previous, with the former getting a majority points decison over "Canelo" in September 2013.

Now a rematch could be in the works, especially is Alvarez sees off Khan.

A source said: "Floyd has done the math and he'll be looking at making half a billion dollars for a couple of fights, it's a no brainier.

"He's also going to be doing some self-PR with a reality show that'll appear on MTV.”

Mayweather can expect to pocket £100m from a blockbuster fight with McGregor, who will net £7m.

Both sides just have to agree on the purse and sign the paperwork — which sources say is imminent — and an announcement is likely to be made in the coming weeks.

A source told The Sun: “Floyd went mad after Conor said he would crush him and knock him out in 30 seconds, he’s obsessed with making Conor eat his words.

“Floyd is calling the shots. It’s strictly boxing and Conor will have to lose roughly 25lbs.

“It was agreed in principle on May 2, but Floyd wouldn’t reveal the identity of his opponent until last night when he told friends he’ll be fighting Conor.”

And Mayweather hinted at the clash as recently as last week when he said he would only come out of retirement for a nine-figure payday.

His company, Mayweather Productions, also filed trademarks for "TMT 50" and "TBE 50".

TMT stands for The Money Team, a fashion brand created by the boxer and also the name of the entourage that follows him around.

Mayweather, whose unbeaten record is tied with that of the legendary Rocky Marciano, calls himself The Best Ever, accounting for the "TBE" trademark listed on the US Patent & Trademark website.
