On Wednesday, former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor alluded to a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr., claiming that a second bout with the undefeated boxing star would be ‘interesting, no doubt.’
I spoiled it with the rush right hook here. The angle was made. He was in the dirt. I just had to set correctly into my feet and fire. Rushing the right hook I lost balance on my back hand.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) March 6, 2019
Great boxing fight!
A rematch will be interesting no doubt. https://t.co/bYVWhOjKO4
“I spoiled it with the rush right hook here,” McGregor posted on Twitter. “The angle was made. He was in the dirt. I just had to set correctly into my feet and fire. Rushing the right hook I lost balance on my back hand. Great boxing fight! A rematch will be interesting no doubt.”
Well, it takes two to tango, and it doesn’t seem Floyd is interested in running things back with the Irishman.
In a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Mayweather flashed his $18 million diamond watch when asked about a rematch with ‘The Notorious’, hinting that he doesn’t need the money.
“Everybody wants a rematch with me. “Don’t worry about that,” Floyd said while pointing to his diamond watch.
Mayweather, who earned a 10th-round TKO stoppage over McGregor, doesn’t seem particularly enthused about a second fight vs. Canelo Alvarez, either. ‘The Best Ever’ beat Alvarez via majority decision back in 2013.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah ... everybody’s saying something. I don’t worry about that. I already made over a billion! You already know that!”
“I’m not worried about all that my man. Floyd is undefeated. Nobody can beat me. You already know that, man!”
Mayweather’s last bout came against Japanese MMA and kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa at RIZIN’s New Year’s event. Mayweather won the bout via first-round TKO, but the result will not affect his record due to it being an exhibition boxing match.
