The 50- boxer, who re-retired just after he finished McGregor by 10th-round TKO when they achieved in 2017, has flirted with quite a few probable fights that could lure him back to the ring – but absolutely nothing that would tarnish his now impeccable resume.
In late 2018, Mayweather engaged in an exhibition match with RIZIN star Tenshin Nasukawa, which ended in a very first-spherical TKO victory. Considering that that time, he’s primarily focused on business endeavors that really do not include him punching or currently being punched. But that may adjust if yet another provide to combat McGregor arrives across his plate.
“If I could decide on an effortless $300 million, completely,” Mayweather explained to Shannon Sharpe on his podcast when requested about a rematch with McGregor. “Same way, very same success.”
At 43, Mayweather is happy that he engaged in a whole vocation with out absorbing the form of punishment that has resulted in major mind damage to other boxers.
Following preventing that on his way to successful 50 specialist fights, Mayweather isn’t likely to possibility his extensive phrase overall health by squaring off with a younger, up and coming boxer. But he does not see those people similar varieties of issues whilst heading in opposition to somebody like McGregor.
“Your wellbeing is your wealth,” Mayweather mentioned. “So as significantly as me heading out there and competing from a male like Conor McGregor, or a guy that is definitely inexperienced. Absolutely [I’d fight Khabib Nurmagomedov]. Individuals are $300 million fights.
“You have to make it make sense. Authentic sense. Specific sort of bucks. I want to have my colleges also. I had my time. I had my era. It’s these youthful fighters’ period now. It’s Okay for me to go battle a Khabib or a Conor – with individuals two fights alone, I could select up $600 million. That don’t hurt to fight guys that just entertain. It’s all leisure.
According to Mayweather, he’s not far too concerned about everything McGregor would do to him in a rematch soon after now paying practically 30 minutes in the ring with him earlier.
While McGregor surely landed his shots throughout that struggle — like an uppercut that seemingly caught Mayweather off guard — the former winner suggests nothing at all at any time had him hurt or rattled, which is why he wouldn’t anticipate a rematch to go any in different ways.
“Conor McGregor can’t punch,” Mayweather reported. “He can’t punch. I do not even bear in mind [the uppercut]. I’m possessing enjoyable. I was like this dude punch so delicate.”
For his part, McGregor has promised that he is familiar with the blunders created in the to start with combat with Mayweather and he would right training course for any potential rematch.
Mayweather doesn’t feel all that involved.
“He understands what he did erroneous, but he also is aware of what he did suitable,” Mayweather described. “What he did mistaken was get in the ring with me. What he did ideal was get in the ring with me so he could get a big payday.”
One matter is sure, Mayweather is undoubtedly open up to the concept since merely put, he’s not a supporter of McGregor in any way, form or sort.
“I really do not like him at all,” Mayweather explained about McGregor. “At all.”
