The former MMA artist was speaking about the exhibition match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Japanese kick boxer Tenshin Nasukawa before he revealed the news.

Speaking to the True Geordie Podcast, the Irishman said:“I’ll give you a funny one.

“I had a guy message me just a few days ago – a Chinese kickboxer who wanted to do three rounds with Conor for $5million."

“And he was going to put it in escrow. It wasn’t like he was just joking.

“I get a million messages like that a day, but you just don’t pay attention to them.

Kavanagh admitted the approach was unorthodox, but insisted it was a “genuine offer."

He said: “This guy was connected and it was a legitimate offer. But I know he wouldn’t do it.

“You get the odd funny message like that. And like I said, it was a genuine offer.

“I know the boxing promoter well and he’s very well known. So he wasn’t going to come with an offer that wasn’t legitimate.”
