Floyd Mayweather thinks he'll break the bank with his fight against Conor McGregor on Aug. 26.

"I mean, am I the highest-paid athlete out there? And just coming back? We not talking about no contract. We not talking about no contract for no four years, or no contract for no five years. I can do it in 36 minutes. $300 (million) or better. In 36 minutes," Mayweather said during an appearance on Showtime's "All Access: Mayweather v. McGregor."
