Jhe boxing world watches with anticipation as Floyd Mayweather continues to be linked with a return to the sport after his retirement.
Both Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor suggested they would step into the ring with mayweather if The Money were to come out of retirement.
Pacquiao has made it clear that he doesn’t think that will happen because he thinks Mayweather is too scared to fight him again.
“I don’t think that will happen because he’s scared to death to face me in the ring again,” Pacquiao said. The two faced off in 2015 in the “fight of the century”, in what was the biggest money-maker in history.
For his part, McGregor is confident in his chances if he faces ‘Money’ again, “I’ll finish him.” In this fight in 2017, the Irishman started well.
However, mayweatherThe experiment was decisive in eventually defeating Conor. For Mayweather, it was his last fight as a professional, with an unblemished record of 50 wins and zero losses or draws.
In this fight, the American would have won around 280 million dollars. While McGregor won $130 million in what was his first and only boxing fight. Since then, the Irishman has suffered three defeats in his last four UFC fights.
Mayweather is torn between making big-money exhibition fights or putting his prestige on the line with next-level fights like Pacquiao, something that seems unlikely, or McGregor that could happen.
