It’s well over a year and months since Conor McGregor “The Notorious” stepped into the boxing world and into the ring with undefeated 11-time five-division boxing world champions Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The fight between the two legends went on for longer than anticipated, where McGregor, the former UFC Champions, lost the fight in the 10th round via technical knockout.
Following a recent tweet from the Irishman, he feels he would have more success if a rematch with Floyd were to happen.
McGregor posted on Twitter:
I spoiled it with the rush right hook here. The angle was made. He was in the dirt. I just had to set correctly into my feet and fire. Rushing the right hook I lost balance on my back hand.
Great boxing fight!
A rematch will be interesting no doubt. https://t.co/bYVWhOjKO4

The fight was one of the highest grossing fights in combat sport history, and a rematch between the two would probably by another box office smash.
Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. was held at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, back in summer of 2017.
Mayweather, 42, emerged victorious in Vegas, where he recorded his 50th win in the process which surpassed the 49-0 record of Hall of Famer Rocky Marciano.
That said, the UFC Fight Night 147 takes place in London, where Jorge Masvidal looking to completely detail Darren Tills hype train.
Although, there has been rumours as cited by Flaming Hairdryer that McGreor is currently in negotiations for a UFC showdown against Donald Cowboy Cerrone, but the Irishman will jump at the opportunity of fighting Mayweather again and says a rematch with the American boxer “will be interesting, no doubt”.
Mayweather, on the other hand, is planning to have more exhibition matches after he had just emerged victory over Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve.
It’s estimated that McGregor made roughly $100 million from the Mayweather fight, and the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champ would undoubtedly make another big payday in a rematch.
McGregor will see it as a healthy pay-check, but for sake of MMA and boxing fans, after watching the first bout back in 2017, let’s hope ‘The Notorious’ next fight is in the UFC.
