Floyd Mayweather has some advice for Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather has some advice for Conor McGregor

Do you think we will see Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor rematch inside of the UFC's octagon? "But as you know, and everybody know, I go into retirement, I come back". Is it possible I come back? Yes. The 41-year-old previously ended his brief retirement to beat Conor McGregor in the boxing ring in a 10-round stoppage in Las Vegas in August to improve his ideal record to 50-0.

Floyd Mayweather says if he fights again, it will be in a mixed martial arts bout, but added he's not focused on getting in the ring again with Conor McGregor. "We could do a multi-fight deal".

"Retirement has been great", Mayweather said. I spoke with [Showtime parent company] CBS. McGregor was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief after a UFC media event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn in which McGregor allegedly threw a metal dolly at a bus window.

Mayweather, who beat McGregor to claim his 50th and final victory inside the boxing ring, condemned his actions but his comments have unsurprisingly caused a stir.

"There's a reason he's even talking about it: because the money is right", White told FOX Sports.




UFC president Dana White has also weighed in on the matter, saying that if it was to happen he was sure Mayweather would be "well compensated" and that he is "pretty confident that this will happen".

One thing Mayweather said was certain was that he is done boxing.

"When I do go to the Octagon I look forward to going to 145 (pounds)".

It would probably take plenty of training with more than just Woodley for Mayweather to gain a firm understanding of fighting in the Octagon, particularly against a seasoned fighter like McGregor.

Mayweather has downplayed the possibility of facing McGregor in the future, but remains open to a new career in UFC.
