After months of anticipation it’s finally happening!
Floyd Mayweather has come out of retirement. His next opponent will be a historic fight in the sport of both boxing and MMA.
He announced that his next opponent is hopeful to be UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor in a one of a kind cross-promotion fight.
Here’s what he said to FightHype:
For Conor McGregor, I’m coming out of retirement, just to fight Conor McGregor:
I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC. Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let’s fight in June. You’re the B side, I’m the A side. We’re not here to cry about money. I’m tired of all this crying about money and talking about you want to fight. You blowing smoke up everybody’s ass. If you want to fight, sign the paperwork, let’s do it.
Today, I’m officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor. We don’t need to waste no time. We need to make this s*** happen quickly. Let’s get it on in June.
His last fight was against Andre Berto in September of 2015.
The ball is now in UFC and McGregor’s court as they try to come to deal on the money of the fight.
