As the verbal scuffles resume, Floyd Mayweather says he would ‘definitely’ rematch Conor McGregor.
Floyd Mayweather has refused to rule out a rematch with Conor McGregor, whom he defeated in their first fight in 2017.
As the two continue to trade angry comments on social media, Floyd Mayweather is open to the notion of a rematch with Conor McGregor. Mayweather defeated McGregor in a four-round fight four years ago in 2017, with Mayweather winning by TKO in the tenth round.
This was a bout that drew attention from all over the world, with an estimated 4.3 million pay-per-view purchases.
Since his loss, McGregor has constantly demanded a rematch and publicly urged Mayweather to accept his offer of a rematch.
“Let’s see what happens if [Mayweather] has the stomach to come over and deal with this, as he has stated. I’d also like to box him once more. In 2018, he told ESPN that “everything is being discussed.”
“Every rule has been established. I don’t want to know if it’s not an MMA match. Either a direct MMA fight or a straight boxing match. I’d rather just box the child again if they come looking for amended rules.”
Tensions between the two have increased in recent weeks, following McGregor’s criticism of the undefeated fighter for his impending battle with YouTuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul.
Paul and Mayweather will fight tomorrow in Miami in a ‘embarrassing’ bout, according to McGregor.
The Notorious’ barbs at Mayweather have not gone missed, and could lead to a rematch between the two in the future.
Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe told Showtime Sports that the Irishman must be careful with his remarks or risk having his bluff called.
“He’s been saying a lot of nonsense,” Ellerbe said. “Listen, what I tell Conor is that if you’re paying attention, you can get that as well.” Without a doubt. Because that particular right is quite personal. I believe that after everything, when they left the ring and hugged and everything, things were a bit different, but now things are a little different.”
Ellerbe stated, “Everything is conceivable.” “However, we haven’t had a single conversation regarding Jake Paul. I’m simply telling it like it is. We haven’t had a single conversation about him.”
Mayweather also joked about people challenging him who don’t have a respectable professional boxing experience, admitting that he’s willing to fighting McGregor again.
“Absolutely. “He’s simple,” the 44-year-old stated.
