Floyd Mayweather wanted to make it clear that he has retired from professional boxing but will not become an entertainer.This is the method he took to fight for his exhibition Sunday with YouTube star Logan Paul, This is the direction he plans for the next few years, including a potential rematch with UFC superstar Connor McGregor.
Mayweather blocked McGregor in the 10th round in August 2017, the last professional match of Mayweather’s career, and this victory increased his career score to 50-0. McGregor is very competitive, although Mayweather apparently controlled the game before the suspension. After a long media tour, seeing the men insulting each other, especially in McGregor, the fighters seemed to reconcile in the ring after the game, hug each other, and seemed to be burying the axe.
Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe told Brian Campbell and Luke Thomas of Showtime Sports at Mayweather and Paul’s Media Day event, Greg (McGregor) recently mentioned trash again, which could easily lead to a rematch.
“He kept talking about a mess of things,” Eleb said. “Listen, what I said to Connor is that if you’re listening, you can get it too. Absolutely. Because it’s very personal. . I think they left the ring and hugged together after everything, but now everything is a little different.”
After the game, Campbell and Thomas also asked Mayweather about the possibility of a rematch.
“Of course,” Mayweather said. “He is easy.”
Mayweather broke his current outlook on life and said: “Boxing is mashed potatoes. I guess these guys are gravy now. It’s funny.”
This means an exhibition match with a social media star and a rematch with a UFC star, playing in a game where he is expected to dominate, but still making a lot of money.
Mayweather said: “Even if I made $50 million, it’s not bad for a retired person.”
Many people expect Mayweather to fight Logan’s brother Jack Paul after the fight with Logan Paul. Many people think he is the better boxer in the Paul family.Jack defeated a former social media star 3-0 as a professional player NBA Player and former MMA champion. After signing with Showtime, he will next play against former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (Tyron Woodley), Showtime is also the home of Mayweather’s most recent game.
According to Eleb, the fight has not yet been launched against the boxing leaders.
“Anything is possible,” Eleb said. “However, we haven’t discussed Jack Paul. I’m just telling the truth. We haven’t discussed him yet.”
