Floyd Mayweather has just confirmed he is happy and willing to end his retirement – or at least come out of it temporarily… But only to fight the UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. It’s the fight everyone wants. And Money’s just said it’s happening.
“I’m coming out of retirement, just to fight Conor McGregor,” Mayweather said on Saturday night. “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 sh*t happen quickly. Let’s get it on in June.”
McGregor, for his part, has already expressed a heavy interest in the match-up. The Irishman said this:
“Me and Floyd have got to get together and talk to figure it out, the same way him and Manny Pacquiao figured it out. Once we come to a set number that I’m happy with and he’s happy with, then we go to the customers, then we go to the promoters, the buyers, then we get it done.”
