Are MMA fans willing to pay money to watch another high-profile fighter from our sport venture into boxing to challenge Floyd Mayweather? Not so much.Earlier this week, Tristar Gym head coach Firas Zahabi said he’s been actively trying to get former UFC two-division champion Georges St-Pierre to pursue a fight with Mayweather.I want Georges to fight Mayweather, Zahabi, who’s trained St-Pierre out of Montreal for many years, said during the “JRE MMA Show” podcast. I keep bothering Georges, You fight Mayweather. You fight him. Hes like, Its crazy. I know its crazy.Of course, we’ve been down this road once before. After months of speculation, former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor finally talked his way into a showdown with Mayweather, which took place last August. The build-up to the fight was insane and the outcome predictable, with Mayweather schooling McGregor before a 10th-round TKO finish. Perhaps that explains the results of our latest Daily Debate in which we asked MMAjunkie readers and MMAjunkie Radio listeners: Does a potential boxing pay-per-view fight between Mayweather and St-Pierre interest you at all?The results (via Twitter):
