It seems we are approaching the will they or won’t they stage of a potential Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather superfight.
Rumors of the possible fight first sparked back in early May and since then both fighters have confirmed interest in fighting one another. Mayweather, widely regarded as the best boxer of his generation, recently hung up the gloves but said he’ll come out of retirement to fight McGregor, the disgruntled MMA champ who pulled out of his most recent card thanks to issues with the pre-fight obligations.
Nothing has been confirmed or announced regarding the superfight (though there is mere speculation that something could happen in Vegas this September) but that hasn’t stopped the preliminary trash talk between the two fighters. McGregor has been dishing out most of the smack thus far — already saying that he runs boxing and that Mayweather “needs” him as an opponent — and he recently took to Instagram to throw his latest.
