Looks like that boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor may happen after all. The latest from the Floyd Mayweather camp has him officially declaring his retirement over in a video posted via FightHype on the weekend so he can fight Conor McGregor. Not only did he announce that he was coming out of retirement, but he proposed a date for their fight.
In the video released Friday by FightHype, Mayweather says, “I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC. Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let’s fight in June. You’re the B side, I’m the A side. We’re not here to cry about money. I’m tired of all this crying about money and talking about you want to fight.”
Mayweather, McGregor, and the UFC have been going back and forth over the past few months trying to negotiate who gets more money from the fight. Both sides are making it look like the other is the reason the fight’s being delayed. This video is a pretty blatant shot from Mayweather, so all we have to do now is wait for McGregor’s reply.
Apparently there’s a hold on the T-Mobile Arena for June 10 in Vegas. That doesn’t mean the fight is confirmed…but it’s a good sign!
