A report has broken out from multiple sources stating that retired undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr will be coming out of retirement to fight…..Conor McGregor?
The report states the two sides are in final negotiations and could give out a pay day of $144 million to Mayweather Jr, while McGregor will take a home roughly $10 million. The bout is said to be planned for Las Vegas, which is the home of UFC and the spot for a lot of boxing’s mega fights.
The UFC has yet to comment on this, and neither Mayweather Jr or McGregor have announced anything.
When looking at this report realistically, we don’t believe this is true. While mixed martial arts and boxing are similar in certain aspects, they are still two completely different sports. No one knows for sure what is happening behind the scenes, but let’s pretend it’s true and ask the question: Would this fight make for great entertainment? And, does McGregor stand a chance against boxing legend Floyd Mayweather?
