Floyd Mayweather addresses UFC rumors, Conor McGregor incident in Brooklyn
09 April, 2018, 00:34
Doubt Floyd Mayweather all you want, but the former boxing world champion continues to fuel the fire around a fight inside the Octagon.
During Saturday's Showtime broadcast of Lara vs. Hurd, Mayweather stated that he's considering one more fight and that it would only be in the UFC. It is possible I do come back. I can do whatever I want to do.
Mayweather did not specifically name Conor McGregor but he would be the presumed opponent. "We could do a multi-fight deal".
In the same interview, the retired 41-year old said that he's done boxing and would only consider a switch to the Octagon if the money was right. I spoke with [Showtime parent company] CBS.
McGregor was freed by a NY judge on $US50,000 ($A65,000) bail on Friday after being charged with assault for his role in a violent attack at a media event to promote UFC 223.
Many would insist that Mayweather, who has not been shy about boasting his ideal boxing record, would be risking not only his unblemished resume but also his health if he rushed into a UFC career.
Mayweather added people should know he is not serious when he says this will be his last time in the ring. Bail was set at $50,000 with a court date for June 14.
If Mayweather was to make his debut in MMA he would most likely fight at featherweight (145 pounds).
It would probably take plenty of training with more than just Woodley for Mayweather to gain a firm understanding of fighting in the Octagon, particularly against a seasoned fighter like McGregor.
It was a very long and frustrating process to get McGregor into a boxing ring to face Mayweather, so we'll have to wait and see if the case is the same with Mayweather's potential transition to the UFC.
