A would-be bout between the two fighters has been teased since the two fought in the ring last year, with Mayweather coming out victorious thanks to a 10th-round TKO.
McGregor actually opened as much larger underdog for his pro boxing debut, as he geared up to do battle with Mayweather, who had just come out of retirement.
If Mayweather is serious about jumping into the Octagon, he’s saying all the right things to get people excited for a potential match. He just recently revealed his desire to obtain his MMA license once he’s put in six-to-eight months’ worth of MMA training.
