On August 26, 2017 a superfight took place in the boxing world. Floyd Mayweather came out of retirement to fight the Notorious Conor McGregor in one of the highest grossing boxing matches of all time. A lot of people including analyst was skeptical of if this fight could live up to all the hype but on that day it did much more than that. Fans were upset with the Floyd and Manny fight and felt cheated but this match was at least better than that fight. Floyd went on to win his 50th fight by TKO in the 10th round. Conor put up a good fight for the first 3 rounds after that he looked gassed and Floyd basically carried the fight out to make a statement. Floyd is now retired and news has come out that another top Boxer has reached out to Conor for a boxing match and that man is Manny Paquiao.
Paquiao confirmed that he is in talks with Connor for a potential fight in April. Connor is coming of the biggest pay day he has ever received fighting and I’m sure he will pick up the phone for another super fight with Manny which will probably be a very entertaining fight. They have not had a follow up conversation just yet but I’m sure that Conor will pick up the phone and listen. Conor hasn’t fought in the UFC for a while now and no one knows if he will ever again. The man is just holding the titles hostage at this point and it’s up to Dana to do something about it. If this picks up and some serious talks get going then UFC fans mine as well forget about him coming back to the octagon.
Also we cannot forget that Oscar Dela Hoya has even thrown his name in the hat for a potential match with Conor stating that all he needs is 2 rounds to put him away and claiming that the Mayweather vs McGregor fight was a big fraud and disrespectful to the sport.
Conor brings a lot of money to anything he touches right now in the boxing and MMA world so everyone is throwing their name in the hat. Some just want to embarrass him but they all know if they can just get a contract signed to fight him then there is a big payday that’s coming. I will follow this story and keep you guys updated.
What do you guys think of a potential Pacquiao vs McGregor fight? Do you think it will be better than the Floyd Mayweather
