Floyd Mayweather Really Wants to Fight Conor McGregor

Retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather initially teased a fight between himself and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor with a mock-up poster in May 2016. In an interview with ESPN, Mayweather invited the mixed martial artist to a boxing match.

“Everybody keeps talking about Conor McGregor,” Mayweather said. “He’s blowing smoke up everybody’s a–. Dana White, the UFC — let’s make it happen. Bring him over to the boxing world and I’ll show him what it’s like.”
