- Not everyone would be excited to see a Mayweather-McGregor boxing match.
- Promoter Oscar De La Hoya has said a bout between the two would be an "embarrassment" for the sport of boxing.

White said they still have a long way to go. But his plan now is to try to lure Mayweather out retirement for a superfight with McGregor.
