Floyd Mayweather Vs Conor Mcgregor Rumored Fight
Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor rumored fight.
Floyd Mayweather is reportedly set for a sensational return to the ring – against UFC star Conor McGregor.
Mayweather, 39, ison the verge of agreeing a deal which will see him step out of retirement and into the richest fight in boxing history against UFC upstart McGregor, reports The Sun.
McGregor told me in an interview in February that he would welcome a fight with Mayweather. “I’m all about the numbers, and I wouldn’t say ‘no’,” he had said at the time.
Mayweather was widely-recognised as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world before walking away from the sport last September, undefeated in 49 fights.
Unnamed sources said in one report that “Floyd went mad after Conor said he would crush him and knock him out in 30 seconds, he’s obsessed with making Conor eat his words.

McGregor has become a box office hit across the Atlantic in the past 18 months, but is currently at loggerheads with UFC chief Dana White, and has been left out of UFC 200, the UFC’s biggest show of the year, in July.
It remains to be seen if the Irishman, 27, and Mayweather are to go ahead with the contest, but its promotion could rival the event a year ago between the American and the Filipino boxing idol Manny Pacquiao.
If the rumors are true, the fight will be officially announced soon.
