Finally, it has happened people, after months and months of poorly scripted drama, trash talk and social media chutzpah American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has confirmed that he is officially coming out of retirement, especially to fight UFC superstar Conor McGregor.
Mayweather, who was ranked as the greatest boxer in the pound for pound category of the last 25 years in 2016 by ESPN, took retirement in 2015 with an undefeated 49-0 record, which saw 26 knockouts.
The five-division world champion told fans he was tired of hearing complaints from McGregor when he showed up at Liverpool’s Auditorium on his latest leg of his UK Undefeated Tour.
On Saturday, in an interview to FightHype, the champion reminded that when he faced Arturo Gatti [in 2005 for the WBC super lightweight championship], he went to Gatti’s turf and Gatti was the A-side he was the B-side. He beat Gatti and didn’t cry or didn’t complain.
Then, against Oscar De La Hoya [ in 2007 for WBC light middleweight title], Hoya was the A-side, he was the B-side. He didn’t cry; he didn’t complain. He beat Hoya, and he became the A-side.
Mayweather said that now for Conor McGregor, he is officially coming out of retirement just to fight Conor McGregor. He doesn’t wanna hear any more excuses about the money, about the UFC.
The American requested Mcgregor to Sign the paper with the UFC so he can fight Mayweather in June.
Calling it Simple and plain Mayweather said that let’s fight in June and you’re[McGregor] the B-side and he is the A-side.
The 40-year-old who is nicknamed as “Pretty Boy Money” pondered that they are not here to cry about money and he is tired of all this crying about money and talking about McGregor want to fight.
Mayweather made it clear:
You[McGregor] blowing smoke up everybody’s ass. If you want to fight, just 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 s**t happen quickly. Let’s get it done in June.
