Floyd Mayweather Jr. said in an interview with Showtime Boxing that if he does come out of retirement, it will be in the Octagon. He said he could be a one-fight or a multi-fight deal with the UFC.
Mayweather Jr., before he made the statement with Jim Gray, previously hinted that he would dabble in mixed martial arts. He has even shown on Instagram that he was training in the Octagon.
He has not been in a match since he defeated Conor McGregor in Aug. 2017 when the MMA star-crossed over to Boxing. Despite having no previous boxing experience, McGregor held his own early on before suffering the loss in the later rounds.
McGregor made more money from venturing into boxing with Mayweather Jr. in the one-off spectacular than he never made in his MMA career. There was talk after the fight that McGregor would have more boxing bouts, but nothing has materialized yet.
Mayweather Jr. improved to 50-0 with the win. He became the only boxer to go 50-0 on their career.
While Mayweather Jr. hinted at the UFC fight, he also mentioned McGregor’s name. However, according to UFC president Dana White, McGregor May never fight for the company ever again after starting a melee on Thursday at the Barclays Center.
If Mayweather Jr. does fight in the Octagon, he probably will not fight anywhere other than Las Vegas. He resides there — and the majority of the UFC big events are there.
