Conor Mcgregor tweeted out to Iron Mike Tyson last night after Tyson had some strong words to say about the former two-weight division champion. The former heavyweight king praised the Irishman for his performance against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in August 2017, claiming McGregor’s ability to not only last ten rounds with the best boxer in the world but also to make the fight competitive, proved the fact that he indeed did belong in the same ring with him.

Mcgregor responded on Twitter to the Tyson interview clip, “Thank you Mike, and just know that for the inevitable rematch, with the knowledge I now hold of Floyd’s style, plus under the tutelage of my old school boxing coach, I will crack the puzzle, and I will beat Floyd. I promise my life on it. It is great to see you back Iron Mike”

It remains to be seen whether or not we will see Mcgregor and Mayweather will duke it out inside the squared circle again, but it certainly seems like the Irishman is planting the seeds for a future massive pay day. Mike Tyson recently talked about a return to the ring for a charity exhibition matchup, while also posting a clip on his Instagram of him hitting the pads.

The Irishman meanwhile was last seen defeating Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in January and has been rumored for a return on Fight Island in July, but nothing has come to fruition quite yet. It’s certainly an interesting scenario for Conor, he has a lot of options on the table. Perhaps, we’ll see ‘Notorious’ in a boxing ring once again sooner rather than later after these latest comments.

So what do you think? Is Conor Mcgregor serious about promising his life that he will defeat Floyd Mayweather Jr in a rematch?

Floyd Mayweather welcomed Conor McGregor to the boxing world back in 2017 in a mega-money fight.

Although the Irishman made the fight competitive in the opening rounds, Mayweather ultimately finished the UFC star in the 10th round via TKO. It remains to this day one of the biggest combat sporting events of all time, and after McGregor’s successful return to the Octagon last month, Mayweather is teasing a rematch with “Notorious.”

Speaking on the “Drink Champs podcast,” Mayweather detailed that he did extremely minimal training for his first fight with McGregor. “Money” said he only really did situps and pushups in training for the fight. (H/T Bloody Elbow)

“For the Conor McGregor [fight], I didn’t really train,” Mayweather said. “All I did was do pushups and sit-ups. That’s all I did. Pushups and sit-ups, box a few times, hit the bag a few times, because, actually, training camp was in different places.

“I would do training camp in Vegas a few days, [but] sometimes I wouldn’t go to the gym for a week. I took it serious, like I said before, I wanted to have some fun in the fight and I wanted to entertain the people.”

McGregor has been very adamant that he believes he could beat Mayweather in a rematch. One of the UFC star’s biggest downfalls in the fight was his cardio burning out in the latter rounds. This allowed Mayweather to then abandon his usual defensive style and open up, eventually putting McGregor away with a barrage of unanswered shots. The victory gave Mayweather his 50th consecutive win in his perfect boxing career.

While Mayweather said he was retired after fighting McGregor, “Money” is now looking to box a UFC star again when he comes out of retirement later this year. UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor are the favorites for the job. Also, it’s speculated Mayweather could rematch Manny Pacquiao this year as well. It will be interesting to see how things play out for Mayweather this year.

It looks like a fan is accusing Floyd Mayweather of assault.

TMZ is reporting that 32-year-old Ricco Kimborough recognized Mayweather standing around with his security team at the valet stand at the Fontainebleau Hilton this past weekend (Sat. February 1, 2020) in Miami around 8:30 a.m. Ricco claims he asked for a picture with Mayweather, but “Money” turned him down by saying “I can’t even get a good morning first?”

According to the police report, Kimborough suggests Mayweather’s security team “pushed him away from Mayweather” and Mayweather yelled at him “I’ll beat your ass.” TMZ caught video of the incident, where you can see Ricco and Mayweather shouting at each other. Meanwhile, Mayweather’s security team is trying to defuse the situation. At one point in the video, Ricco can be heard saying, if he’s beat up by Mayweather, “I’ll get all your money too!”

Mayweather responded by saying, “You can get this ass-whooping for free.” With that being said, Mayweather remains relatively calm throughout the video, physically, and showed no signs of an altercation or even getting near Ricco. It was nothing more than trash-talk before getting into his SUV. Miami Beach PD is currently investigating the assault allegations. Check out the video of the incident below.

Conor McGregor is back, and Floyd Mayweather has taken notice.

Last night (Sat. January 18, 2020) McGregor returned to the Octagon to headline UFC 246 on pay-per-view (PPV) against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at welterweight. After over a year away from MMA competition, McGregor only needed 40 seconds to put Cerrone away. Now, potential fights against Jorge Masvidal, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and more loom.

However, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has also thrown his name in the hat, taking to his Instagram page to tease a rematch with the Irishman in 2020. Here’s the post.

McGregor and Mayweather boxed each other back in 2017, where the Irishman made his professional boxing debut. “The Notorious” started off strong, but faded in the latter rounds where he was TKO’d in the 10th round. Since, he has gone 1-1 in MMA, losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October of 2018, and now defeating Cerrone to kick-off 2020. It will be interesting to see if the rematch comes to fruition this year.

Top-ranked UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal likely has a big 2020 ahead of him.

Masvidal has laid out several possibilities for what’s next for him. One of the more appealing options seems to be a boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mayweather has teased he will end his retirement in 2020. Initial reports suggest he’ll rematch Manny Pacquiao before fighting a UFC fighter in a crossover boxing fight.

“Gamebred” has teased he could cut down to 154 pounds to fight “Money” if he’s open to it. Now, in an interview with Sports Illustrated, Masvidal claims he has heard Mayweather is coming over to Zuffa Boxing, and he wants to fight a UFC star. The Floridian claims he’s the frontrunner to be Mayweather’s opponent, and he’s trying to seal the deal.

“Mayweather is coming over to Zuffa Boxing (which is owned by the UFC). [The promotion is] going to be looking for [a mixed martial artist] to fight him [in a boxing match] and it appears as if I’m the top candidate. That’s the fight we’re all looking to close,” Masvidal said.

Masvidal had a tremendous 2019 and is up for Fighter Of The Year. He started off with a second-round hellacious knockout win over Darren Till in England. Then, he pulled off the fastest knockout in UFC history, flattening Ben Askren in five seconds with a flying knee. Finally, he ended the year with a TKO win over Nate Diaz at UFC 244 due to a Doctor’s Stoppage.

It remains to be seen what’s next for Masvidal, but one thing is for sure, it will bank him some major cash.

Do you think Masvidal could actually box Mayweather in Zuffa Boxing?
