Jose Aldo confirmed negotiations with Floyd Mayweather Jr

The Brazilian retired MMA fighter recently dropped a massive hint at a big fight. He confirmed that he had negotiations with Floyd Mayweather over a boxing match. People have been speculating about this fight for quite a while now.

Up until this point, there was no substantial base to the rumors as well. Moving forward, Aldo is actively working to make this fight happen as he said, “We’ve been in negotiations for a long time, And that fight could go down in Saudi Arabia.”

Fans, however, had a mixed reaction to the news. Some fans thought of this to be another cash grab. Nevertheless, it would be an imbalanced fight as Floyd has a massive advantage, as one claimed. While another reached the conclusion that Floyd is “broke” because he is even considering this fight.

On the other hand, some fans were excited about the fight. Some claimed that they would pay to watch this fight. In anticipation of this fight, some brought up the Connor McGregor bout against ‘Money’, claiming Aldo can perform better.

Aldo, on the other hand, has a fight to focus on, for now. He is set to face his former UFC opponent Jeremy Stephens in the Gamebred Boxing 4. Stephens will have his very first boxing match in Wisconsin while Aldo will look to extend his win streak to two.

How do you think Aldo will fare against Floyd if the fight indeed goes through?
