While rumours of a rematch between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have been doing the rounds since the second the bell sounded, Notorious just confirmed he won’t rest until it happens.
Quick recap: Back in August 2017, the MMA fighter went ten rounds with Mayweather in what was dubbed “the biggest fight in Combat Sports History.” Despite starting off strong, he was technically outboxed. Still, he won plenty of fans against arguably, the best pound-for-pound boxer to ever step foot in the ring.
“It’s a spectacle, but listen, this is where it’s not a spectacle. He never really had a boxing match in his life, right?” Mike Tyson said of the contest on a recent episode of his podcast.
“He went 10 rounds with the greatest fighter of the last 100 years of boxing…He went 10 rounds, scored punches on the greatest fighter in the last 100 years. Did he accomplish something? …Look at what he had to fight against and look what he did when he fought against him.”
McGregor responded via Twitter, vowing to come out on top the next time the opportunity arises.
“Thank you Mike,” he wrote. “Just know that for the inevitable rematch, with the knowledge I now hold of Floyd’s style, plus under the tutelage of my old school boxing coach, I will crack the puzzle, and I will beat Floyd. I promise my life on it.”
We’re ready when you are, Floyd.
