It’s happening. Retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather has officially called out UFC superstar Conor McGregor in what could be the start of a journey towards one of the greatest pay-per-view events in history.
Mayweather – who was undefeated as a professional – made these comments during an interview in Liverpool as part of a UK press tour. Earlier in the year, he told interviewers that squaring up with McGregor was the “only fight I want”.
His recent comments therefore serve as confirmation that that he would come out of retirement to fight the UFC champion.
He appeared to take jibes at McGregor by constantly referencing “excuses” and “crying”.
“When I faced Arturo Gatti, I went to his turf. He was the A side, I was the B side. I beat him, I didn’t cry, I didn’t complain. When I faced Oscar De La Hoya, he was the A side, I was the B side. I didn’t cry, I didn’t complain, I beat him and I became the A side.”
