Floyd Mayweather says talks for a McGregor Vs. Mayweather rematch are ongoing
There is a reason boxing is often referred to as prizefighting. Competitors and promoters are always looking for the best way to increase revenue and make the biggest fights possible. So when you have one of the most lucrative fights of all time, a rematch is always right around the corner.
Sources appear to be indicating that just over a year since their first encounter, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are going to once again meet again in the boxing ring. Mayweather Jr’s father Floyd Mayweather Sr, has revealed in an interview that talks are ongoing for a rematch of ‘the money fight’.
“They are talking like him and Conor McGregor are going to fight. That’s what it sounds like. I don’t know for sure but I’m just saying the way things are sounding to me. Sounds like he (my son) wants to fight again,” Mayweather Sr Told Helen of Yee Sports.
“He’ll (McGregor) fight again and show people what he can do, which is nothing. I’m going to make sure this time he is stretched out. All the way out of the game. I’m going to make sure he don’t come back no more.”
While the quotes may be solely to try and goad McGregor back into the boxing ring, the animosity between both men clearly still exists. After Mayweather Jr. recently told TMZ that McGregor would be welcome to come train at his gym for his upcoming UFC title fight, McGregor replied in characteristic notorious fashion.
Fuck the Mayweathers, except Senior and Roger.
There is no peace here kid.
Step up or step down.

While McGregor would likely still need to get past Khabib Nurmagomedov and reclaim the UFC Lightweight Championship on October 6th, the possibility of a rematch between ‘Money’ and Mystic Mac is certainly not out of the question. After all, the first bout was one of the biggest pay per view draws in the history of combat sports, drawing 4.3 million buys in the USA alone.
