Floyd Mayweather Says Fight with McGregor will not Happen




Despite the rumors flying about within the past few months concerning a potential boxing bout between the undefeated Floyd Mayweather and the phenomenal mixed martial artist Conor McGregor, who was the first fighter in the history of the UFC to simultaneously hold two championship belts in different weight classes, Mayweather has admitted that the much anticipated fight will not occur. According to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, Mayweather told Stephen A. Smith during last Saturday’s game between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder that “we’re getting very, very close” with regard to an agreement on a bout with McGregor. However, Mayweather has since posted on his Instagram account stating that he intends to remain retired and is happy enjoying life at the moment. He also stated that if that were to change, he’d be the first to inform the public of his plans to return to competitive boxing.

This potential fight was broadcasted to the public as though it were an all-but sure thing, but as of now, it looks like the fight has been postponed, if not for a while, then forever. Although it seems like a long shot at this point, when it comes to boxing matches of this magnitude, as well as the popularity of both fighters involved throughout the world, the money that would be made by the both of them may be cause for reconsideration in the near future.
