Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor barely had time to exit the ring before there were whispers of a rematch.
A year later, Floyd Mayweather Sr himself is adding fuel to the fire. The elder Mayweather gave an interview to Helen Yee Sports during which he seemingly confirmed a that rematch between his son and UFC fighter McGregor is in the works.
“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.”
Sr. went on to say that if there is a second fight, it would take place in the boxing ring again and that McGregor would be knocked out of the sport for good.
“I’m just saying I think they are going to fight the same way [boxing rules].“I think that Conor McGregor want to get that win back that he had, which is never coming back to him anyway.
“It’s being talked about and it sounds like there is a lot of interest in it right now.”
Mayweather Jr. and McGregor have kept the beef alive long after the fight, which could be a marketing tactic. We will see sooner or later; but in the meantime, flip the page to watch the Mayweather Sr. interview.
