Mayweather Doesn't Shoot Down Possibility Of Fight With McGregor

Conor McGregor

"We haven't talked about it. Conor McGregor's under contract with the UFC", White said.

Yahoo Sports reports UFC president, Dana White, quickly shot down reports of the fight.

Mayweather made his comments to FightHype.com in Las Vegas before the Canelo Alvarez-Amir Khan fight. "The rumors that you have all been hearing are rumors that I started". "It may not be a rumor". It may not be a rumor, so keep your fingers crossed. With that said and if the fight does become serious, it may all boil down to Mayweather's decision.

"You just never know, but right now I'm happy being on side...."

All this comes on the back of Floyd Mayweather Sr. telling ES News on Saturday that his son was considering a fight against McGregor when speaking to Helen Yee on the red carpet at the Nevada State Hall of Fame Awards.

CONOR McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have won. For every guy like Bernard Hopkins, there's a bunch of guys who the wheels just fall off and all of a sudden they can't take a punch anymore and they can't fight anymore, they don't move good anymore.

Roach also was asked if he believed he could get McGregor ready for a boxing bout with 'Money; however he claimed to not have enough tape on the Irishman's boxing as of that moment.

McGregor's immediate future has not been decided as of late, and his next fight has yet to be booked.

The 27-year-old McGregor, perhaps responding to Mayweather's comments, on Sunday tweeted a mock promotional poster for a fight between him and Mayweather.

You have a better chance of winning last week's $429 million Powerball than seeing Mayweather vs. McGregor. But Mayweather is known for not being able to stay away from the ring, retiring briefly twice in 2007 and then coming out of retirement after a 21-month break in 2009.

The first round is the best of the fight. Waiting for a boxing event that would be tangled up in negotiations, McGregor could be forced to drop his featherweight title and damage his UFC options. "One day, the whole world will finally get over the whole boxing versus MMA thing". If Mayweather fights again, it would be the 50th fight of his career.
