The ‘Retired’ Pay Per View king, Floyd Mayweather Jr, 42 and once again active UFC star Conor McGregor, 31 shared a boxing ring back in August 2017 where Mayweather walked away with a not to strenuous TKO victory.
Since the fight with Mayweather, McGregor has returned to the Octagon on 2 occasions, one fight was with Khabib Nurmagomedov which resulted in a dramatic loss for McGregor and the most recent fight after a 15 month break from the UFC on Saturday with Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone with McGregor easily overcoming Cowboy inside 40 seconds at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, this will surely place him back in contention for some huge fights in 2020 whether that will be in the Ring or the Octagon.
McGregor’s recent activity in the media has seen his name being mentioned for fights between him and the likes of Jorge Masvidal or Nate Diaz in the Octagon but has also been the centre of rumors to fight Manny Pacquiao in Boxing, but it doesn’t stop there–
There have also been heavy rumors of ongoing talks between Mayweather, McGregor and their teams to make a rematch between the 2 fighters and shortly after McGregor’s fight on Saturday night, Mayweather was quick to post what appeared to be a promotional poster on to his Instagram teasing about the rematch!
Does this mean Mayweather v McGregor 2 is on following McGregor’s victory in the Octagon?
Maybe not, as Mayweather also posted a very similar image shortly after the one with McGregor to his Instagram containing him and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Maybe the undefeated Boxing champ is just checking out the public’s interest before he commits to coming out of retirement.
Mayweather is known to teasing the public around the time of other big fights with potential fights involving him that never materialize
It’s safe to say that If either Mayweather or McGregor did decide to make a return to Boxing that neither would be short of high profile offers to fight from their fellow sportsmen.
Do you want to see a second fight? Should McGregor make a return to Boxing? Or should they both go their separate ways and find different opponents?
