Collection of Mayweather and McGregor’s trash-talk about their possible fight
With pound for pound boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr recently announcing he was officially coming out of retirement to fight UFC superstar Conor McGregor, the likelihood of this MMA versus Boxing super fight surprisingly moves that bit closer to reality.
“I’m coming out of retirement, just to fight Conor McGregor. I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC. Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let’s fight in June.”
Whether a fight materializes in June is anyone’s guess, but this statement just adds to the months upon months of trash talk that has taken place between Mayweather and McGregor.
“Floyd does not want a fight, Floyd wants a match under a specific set of rules.”
Whether we get an mixed martial arts fight, a Boxing match or some kind of hybrid set of rules remains to be seen.
Check out the rest of the trash talk below.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. (February 24, 1977) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1996 to 2015, and currently works as a boxing promoter.
