Will Floyd Maywather go for a 50-0 record? Well, the legendary boxer announced that he is out of retirement and willing to pursue another fight.
He only has one opponent in mind, though.
Mayweather announced to MMAFighting.com that he is officially out of retirement in order to try and fight UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
“Today, I’m officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor,” Mayweather said to MMAFighting. “We don’t need to waste no time. We need to make this s**t happen quickly. Let’s get it on in June.”
It still seems unlikely that the fight will actually happening, but there is incentive for both fighters to book it. At the end of the day, this is a business, and a boxing match between Mayweather and McGregor would likely be one of the highest-drawing pay-per-views of all time.
Money talks, and it looks like these two are going to keep talking at each other until something happens.
