“It does seem like too much. I know Gervonta recently posted a picture holding $9 million cash. I don’t know, it could be!

I am not making anywhere near that!”, he added.

However, he also remained skeptical, recognizing that numbers could be manipulated to create headlines. “But yeah, boxing is just different than UFC. But I’d be curious to know if that is true or not. Because you can say anything”, O’Malley said.
