Floyd Mayweather Jr. is retired from boxing with a 49-0 record but he’s jonesing to get back into the ring. Not that ring. A ring in the octagon shape and he’s not being shy about pushing the issue.
Mixed martial arts expert, Conor McGregor (21-3, 18 KO), is the reigning UFC lightweight champion and Mayweather is aggressively going after his belt.
In a recent interview with Sky SPORTS Mayweather went off on another one of his patented rants, challenging McGregor.
“The difference between me and him is. He has to fight,” said Mayweather. “If I was him and I was smart, before I lose again in the UFC I’d let Floyd Mayweather kick my ass for a lot of money. It makes business sense.”
Mayweather went on to say he’s typing up a contract and faxing it over to McGregor to sign.
That’s a shocker…people still actually use fax machines?
McGregor and Mayweather have been at it for about eight months but with Mayweather getting more aggressive as of late, we may be seeing some activity on the negotiations for the fight.
While Mayweather said the fight is definitely a possibility, he just couldn’t end it there without throwing another offensive shot at the Irishman, saying:
“Conor McGregor, you a bitch.” – Mayweather Jr.
McGregor is experienced enough to know mindless trash talk when he hears it so we doubt if that is gonna rile up the Irishman. With Mayweather notorious for dancing his way through many championship fights, we wish Mayweather would ‘ve thrown as many shots in the ring as he has on this trek to coax McGregor into the ring.
