Floyd Mayweather Issues 'The Mayweather Challenge' On Social Media: Here Are The Most Hilarious Responses

After rumors of negotiations between the two sides swirled for months, Floyd Mayweather announced on social media Thursday that the dream fight between Mayweather and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor is officially set for August 26 in Las Vegas.

To help promote the big fight, Mayweather took to Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) to declare what he calls the “Mayweather Challenge.”

In the Twitter video, Mayweather said he wants followers to show off how they are really living. Mayweather did his part by posting footage of himself hanging out with a couple of crew members on a runway beside his private jet.

Mayweather is expected to earn more than $100 million for the McGregor fight. His 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao earned him north of $220 million.

While it seems as though the #mayweatherchallenge was meant for followers to show off their lavish lifestyles, it turns out that a number of Mayweather’s followers aren’t quite living the dream that the millionaire undefeated world champion boxer is. Here’s a look at some of the best replies to the #mayweatherchallenge.

Not all of Mayweather’s followers own private jets, but they all have to get around somehow.

Mayweather’s nickname is “Money,” but lots of Americans don’t necessarily get $220 million for one day of work.

One follower proposed his own unique #mayweatherchallenge.

However, just because not everyone is rolling in cash like Floyd doesn’t mean that some posters couldn’t live up to the true spirit of the challenge.

Finally, for some followers, a picture is worth 1,000 words.
