Floyd Mayweather: 'I'm coming out of retirement, just to fight Conor McGregor'
The legendary boxer is ready to take on the Irishman in what could be an epic event
Floyd Mayweather is ready to let his fists do the talking, at least we think.
Mayweather, who had feuded with Conor McGregor and teased a potential boxing match with the MMA star for the past eight months, said Saturday he’s ready to come out of retirement to take on the Irishman.
“When I faced Arturo Gatti, I went to his turf,” Mayweather said. “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. For Conor McGregor, I’m coming out of retirement, just to fight Conor McGregor.”
Mayweather (49-0) is apparently tired of the talking and wants to get this fight done as soon as possible, maybe even in June.
“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. You blowing smoke up everybody’s ass. If you want to fight, sign the paperwork, let’s do it.

It’ll be interesting to see how McGregor and his team respond to this, since he tends to troll Mayweather at any given opportunity. Here’s to hoping Mayweather is actually serious this time and not just trying to keep up interest.
