Floyd Mayweather hints at rematch with Conor McGregor


Floyd Mayweather

American boxer Floyd Mayweather has hinted at the possibility of a rematch with Irish kickboxer Conor McGregor.

The two had a resounding clash three years ago which saw Conor McGregor being knocked out during the fight.

Conor McGregor after his defeat has since been calling for a rematch and it seems his call has been warmly received by the ‘The Money Team’ boss.

This came after Mayweather announced he is ready to take him on if the money involved is settled.

Now 43-year-old has called out the Irishman. “Man if they pay I’m there to play,” he told TMZ Sports.

“If they’re paying cash Conor I’ll whip your ass… again

“I do what I do everywhere, I pick up the money I get paid to tell my story.”

McGregor switched from MMA to boxing for his first-ever professional fight in the sport to take on one of the best of his generation and for much of the fight, Mayweather’s superiority shone through.

Floyd Mayweather who has a 50-0 record, finally ended the fight in the 10th round but speaking to Revolt TV earlier this month the 43-year-old claimed he could have finished it earlier, saying, “I took it seriously, but as I said before, I wanted to have some fun in the fight.

“I wanted to entertain people. So you know, just lead with that style that I had which was entertaining, it was fun, so that the people enjoyed it. So you have to give people a show, so I gave people a show. If I wanted to go out and f**k him up and blaze him right out the gate, I could have done that. But you know, my thing is if I would have done that, there probably wouldn’t be a part two.”

The Notorious has one win and one loss in his UFC career since returning from boxing. He lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov, who has also been linked with a fight against Mayweather, in October 2018 before another 15-month absence.

According to reports, McGregor’s next fight is expected to be against Justin Gaethje in the summer, with preliminary talks having already begun.
