Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor may face each other again, following their lucrative 2017 bout as per Leonard Ellerbe (Mayweather’s advisor).
The battle took place in 2017 between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor when the former came on top during a ten round fierce bout. The fight was the culmination of a lengthy feud between the two stars and generated huge interest around the world.
CEO of Mayweather Promotions, Ellerbe claimed that McGregor’s always ready for the fight and hinted the duo could reignite their rivalry in the ring. Responding to comments from the Irishman in a recent interview, he claimed he would win a rematch if given a second chance.
“That’s interesting. I hadn’t heard that but Conor McGregor knows he’s always welcome to that ass-whooping.“
“I have the utmost respect for Conor, Dana, and those guys. If Conor McGregor wants some of that smoke again, he knows what he’s got to do.“
“All he’s got to do is call Dana. That’s all he has to do.”
“I can’t speak for Floyd but I’ll tell you what, Conor McGregor, if he wants that ass-whooping again, I’m sure Floyd would oblige to that.”
McGregor recently claimed that Floyd Mayweather Jr failed to keep his promise of a rematch.
“Originally the promise was that I fought him on his terms, and he then fought me on my terms.”
“I haven’t heard from him since. We’ll see what happens. I would love another go in the boxing ring, to see what happens.“
“I know he’s not going to come into my game. But I would love to rematch him under boxing rules again. I have that knowledge and my sparring partners coming forward with that style and see where we go.“
“I believe I would win. Actually, there I go again with that fake humbleness. I know I would win.”
McGregor announced his retirement from UFC in March but, in light of his recent comments, is believed to have plans to fight again.
