Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are reportedly in talks over a stunning boxing rematch.
McGregor, who has not fought in almost a year since suffering a horrific broken leg in his defeat to Dustin Poirier. Shared a picture of his clash with Mayweather on Instagram on Thursday evening. Alongside the picture, he hinted at the pair facing off one more time as he wrote: ‘I accept.’ Mayweather’s victory against The Notorious proved to be his last ever pro fight. Taking his record to 50 wins and zero losses or draws. It’s uncertain as to whether a rematch between the pair would be another exhibition bout. Whether Mayweather would make it one more professional fight.
From their original fight, Mayweather reportedly earned a massive purse worth around $280million, with McGregor taking $130million. The fight was McGregor’s first and only boxing fight. Has since suffered three defeats in his last four UFC bouts. Speaking to Sky Sports, while attending the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix. McGregor confirmed that he intends to step back into the boxing ring in the future. McGregor said: ‘Boxing is my first love in combat sports. I had such a great time the last time I was out there.
Obviously, my return will be in the octagon for UFC – that story is far from over, in fact it’s just being written, it is just the beginning. ‘But, boxing, for sure I will grace the squared circle again in the future.’ Mayweather’s last exhibition bout was against old sparring partner Don Moore on a helipad in Dubai. The American will travel to Japan for another exhibition in September, this time against MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura.
