Mayweather Breaks His Silence — ‘I’m out of retirement for the fight the fans want, Conor McGregor’

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor “Notorious” McGregor has been attempting to schedule the payday of his career. The champion wants to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. inside a boxing ring.

UFC President Dana White recently revealed that he has squared things away with Conor McGregor, but has yet to nail down the details with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Since then, Mayweather Jr. has gone media silent. Now, the boxing phenom has come forward.

In a recent interview with Behind the Gloves, Floyd Mayweather Jr. explained that he removed himself from retirement because he considers himself a businessman. “I want to give the world what they want to see. McGregor’s a fighter. I’m a fighter. That’s what the people want to see.” He said.

An official announcement of Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. has yet to be made. Still, many believe the cross-promotional matchup to simply be a matter of time.
