Floyd Mayweather Boxing News

A rematch in the works?

Floyd “Money” Mayweather is dropping hints that he is not done with Connor McGregor. In a match for the ages, Floyd beat the MMA champion in a boxing match held in August, 2017 at the T-Mobile Arena. Now he wants to beat McGregor once more in an MMA match. If he does so, Floyd could be the absolute king of both sports. In a highly publicized, highly profitable fight, Floyd and Connor exchanged punches and both men gave their all. Floyd won and maintained his perfect professional streak of 50 wins and no losses. Not long after, hints of a rematch were in the air and Floyd confirmed them when he recently registered for an MMA fighting license. Moreover, the UFC president Dana White indicated that they are in talks to create a deal with both fighters concerning a rematch. Boxing and UFC fans are on the edge of their seats waiting to see if it will materialize.

The 51st one

Having retired from professional boxing after winning his match against UFC champion Connor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather is now speaking of a comeback. The 40 year old boxer has indicated that indeed, he’s interested in getting back into the square circle. There are various reports about who his opponent could be. Many are of the opinion that Amir Khan is the opponent that Floyd will face. However, the five-weight champ has confirmed that Amir is not going to be his opponent.

When asked for an opinion, Floyd Mayweather indicated that every fighter thinks that they deserve a chance to box with him. Many are motivated by the big payday that happens whether they win or lose. However, he has declared that he only fights with boxers that deserve it because he is not going to be anyone’s meal ticket. Sources in his camp are positive that the boxer will return to the ring in 2018. He has been working out in the gym consistently and is still in fighting shape. So which boxer is Floyd “Money” Mayweather going to fight next?

Strange responses from the King of the Ring

In a recent interview, Floyd Mayweather seemed not to be aware of the #MeToo movement. While speaking to Men’s Health, the boxer not only did not know about the women’s rights movement but actually turned it into an ego trip. The movement is about women opening up about sexual assault by influential men in the society. Seeing as Floyd has been charged multiple times with domestic violence, his opinion was going to be a real eye-opener about the contents of his heart. However, the undefeated champion had other plans. Instead of chiming in on the subject matter of the #MeToo campaign, he indicated that he does not know anything about the phrase being associated with women. Instead, he uses it as a personal bragging phrase. When he meets someone who has a private jet, he says “Me Too”. The boxer went on an endless rant about his possessions and his enjoyment of using the phrase. The interview ended up being about his wealth and not the movement at all.
