Conor McGregor has downplayed Floyd Mayweather’s call for a second meeting next year by claiming he’s “not interested”.
Mayweather and McGregor went toe-to-toe in 2017, which expanded Mayweathers’s record to (50-0), before closing the curtains on his career. Despite being retired, Mayweather has been participating in exhibition bouts furthering his extensive bank balance. The 45-year-old returns between the ropes this weekend against Mikuru Asakura.
Earlier today, Mayweather revealed he would face McGregor again next year, undecided on an exhibition or professional contest.
“I want to go out there this weekend and have fun. Then I have another exhibition in Dubai in November and me and Conor McGregor in 2023. We don’t know if it’s going to be an exhibition of a real fight. But there’s been talks of both. I would prefer an exhibition,” Mayweather told the Daily Mail.
“I am not into fights where I am going to take any real punishment. So, guys like Conor McGregor and guys that don’t really hit hard, such as YouTubers or UFC guys, I don’t really mind colliding with those kinds of individuals, but nothing where I am going to put myself in a position where I am going to harm myself or hurt myself.”
McGregor has now taken to social media to share an image of his first meeting with Mayweather, along with declining the bout.
