Since then McGregor has said he will look to return to his usual sport of MMA in the UFC for his next fight, but has left the door open to a future return to the sweet science.

In his fight with Mayweather, McGregor did have some success early on in the bout but critics suggest that Mayweather was simply carrying him in the fight at points.

Waiting for the right moment to step up his assault and close the show when he chose to, as it were.

Speaking to the Courier Mail, WBO welterweight world champion Jeff Horn said he welcomes a fight with the UFC fighter:

”It would be the easiest fight of my career. If it’s under boxing rules McGregor has no chance.”

Horn’s promoter want on to say directly to McGregor:

“Tell us how much money you want.”
