Conor McGregor closes door on Mayweather fight: I’m not interested

Floyd Mayweather surprised fans with the announcement that he and Conor McGregor will fight next year.

He even said that there were already talks between the two sides to determine if it would be a professional fight or an exhibition fight. But it looks like the Irishman has other plans for his second fight with Floyd.

The Notorious posted a picture of their 2017 fight on Instagram with a direct message: “not interested”.

Confusion over McGregor-Mayweather

It is unknown to what extent this is an official stance or is the Irishman’s show to generate more interest in a rematch against Mayweather.

Mayweather won the first meeting between the two in 2017 by TKO in the 10th round. It was McGregorfirst professional boxing match since winning the UFC featherweight and lightweight championships.

Since then, the Irishman has not been doing very well. He has a 1-3 record in the UFC, including a leg injury that kept him out of the ring or the octagon for over a year.

Mayweather will hold an exhibition fight against a Japanese mixed martial arts fighter Mikuru Asakura. It will take place on Sunday, September 25th in Japan.
