Currently on a tour of the United Kingdom, Floyd Mayweather had a short, succinct message for Conor McGregor.

“Sign the paper,” Mayweather said, according to ESPN’s Ben Dirs. “Sign the paper. You said you were boss, so just sign the paper and let’s make it happen.”

Mayweather is referring to the ongoing negotiations between himself and the UFC lightweight champion for a potential boxing match that has been the subject of rampant speculation. Both men have made varying degrees of commitment to the superfight, with disputes over pay and how much autonomy McGregor has as an employee of the UFC.

McGregor has boasted that he calls the shots in his career, much to the chagrin of UFC president Dana White. The 28-year-old Irishman has been on hiatus since knocking out Eddie Alvarez last November to capture the 155-pound strap and has prioritized a meeting with Mayweather over any future Octagon adversaries.

The magnitude of the crossover fight is one thing the two superstars agree on, with Mayweather going as far as to say it was the most important fight in the sport. Mayweather recently turned 40 and has not fought since defeating Andre Berto in a supposed retirement bout in September 2015 which improved his record to a spotless 49-0.
