At the age of 44, Floyd Mayweather is coming out of retirement to take on Logan Paul on June 6th. Mayweather’s last pro fight was against Conor McGregor, which he won by TKO in the later rounds.
Though Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul is intriguing fight fans are already speculating who Mayweather will fight next. There were speculations that Mayweather would take on Jake Paul after the whole “Gotcha Hat” incident but Floyd’s manager, Leonard Ellerbe confirmed that there have been no discussions about a fight with Jake Paul so far.
During the media day when asked about a potential rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, Leonard Ellerbe gave exciting news to the fans. He stated that there is a huge possibility that the fans will see a second installment of Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather. Leonard Ellerbe stated:
“He(Conor) has been talking a lot. Listen Conor if you are listening, you can get that too. Most definitely(when asked whether a rematch is on the table). That’s right there is very personal. Well, I think after everything they left the ring they hugged. but things are a little different now. Things are a little different now.”
How did the Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather rivalry start again?
Conor McGregor has been taking shots at Floyd Mayweather in recent times. But things got serious after the whole “Gotcha Hat” incident. After the Floyd Mayweather vs Jake Paul brawl, Conor McGregor ridiculed Mayweather and his manager by stating:
“Hey Leonard Ellerbe, what the f**k is Floyd at? The kid curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy. The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation. Floyd is in out of the drain for him. he should thank him. It’s embarrassing. Pro to pro it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch 10m for this fight and he knows it. it was canceled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter He’d fight a half-decent pro and command 20m upwards, yet it’s this shit. Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or fuck off mate. Slap head.”
Both Jake Paul and Logan Paul have called out Conor McGregor on multiple occasions. However, McGregor has shown no interest in fighting them as he is focused to get the UFC lightweight gold at the moment. And this is not a good look for Floyd who is fighting a YouTuber with 0 wins and one loss in an exhibition fight.
Though Conor and Floyd left the boxing ring with a lot of respect for each other there is no doubt that McGregor would love to get his revenge sooner or later. And if opportunity presents then it’s not unlikely to see these megastars face each other for millions and millions of dollars.
