There’s been a lot of speculation on Floyd Mayweather’s potential move to the UFC, and now the boxing legend has added to it, stating to Forbes Magazine that there is indeed ongoing talks about a potential Octagon debut.
Floyd Mayweather retired from the sport of Boxing after a 10th round stoppage of UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
In the lead up to the super-fight, Floyd promised McGregor a rematch in the UFC, and that’s something UFC President Dana White reminded the world during a stint on FOX last week.
The UFC boss stated, “Floyd said leading up to the fight with Conor that he would do both. So we’ll see what happens. Obviously, the only way making that fight again makes any sense is if he comes into the Octagon. We went over and boxed him, the UFC and Conor McGregor, and now it’s time for him to reciprocate and come and fight in the Octagon.”
Now, for what it’s worth, Floyd revealed that he may wind up returning to the boxing ring, but the Octagon is on the table to.
In his new talk with Forbes, Mayweather stated, “I don’t know. We don’t know if it’s a boxing ring — or maybe an Octagon. We just don’t know. But there’s been talks.”
This is the first time that Mayweather has confirmed such news.
