Floyd Mayweather seems to be at his last bit of patience with all the Conor McGregor talk. He has now laid out a definitive plan for McGregor to take him on this summer. A simple one.
Floyd Mayweather has always been a man who knows how to sell fights. Just look at his pay per view record for proof of that.
Love him or hate him, he seems to have been able to make that rare leap that few boxers do, in terms of crossing over to fans outside of boxing into mainstream media.
But he’s 40 years old now and time waits for no man.
He’s always selected opponents tactically and for the life of me, I can’t see him bothering to take on a legitimate boxing challenge with all that he’s achieved at this point in the sport.
Outside of going for the all elusive 50-0 record.
He’s an entertainer and businessman nowadays more than anything, and the Conor McGregor spectacle is something that he only seems interested in at this point.
Speaking to Johnny Nelson and a large group of fans at an event in the UK, Floyd Mayweather issued McGregor with the following plan to make the fight finally happen:
“For Conor McGregor, I’m coming out of retirement just to fight Conor McGregor. I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, the UFC, sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Lets fight in June. You’re the B side and I’m the A side. We’re not here to cry about money. I’m tired of all this crying about money and talking that you want to fight. You’re blowing smoke up everyone’s a**. If you want to fight sign the paper work. Lets do it.”
He went on to say:
“Today I’m officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor. Today”
It doesn’t get more definitive than that, does it? He must be exhausted from the verbal battering he’s getting about McGregor everywhere he goes by now.
No doubt this will happen at some point in 2017. It seems like the ball is in the UFC’s court now.
