While we are still a long way from Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor facing off in a boxing match, Floyd seems to be doing everything he can on his end to make it happen. He told a crowd in England during his tour over there that he is officially coming out of retirement to fight Conor, which is something he didn’t confirm in the past. He seems to be pretty set on making the fight happen and is getting fed up with Conor and all the extra nonsense that involves everything but the actual fight.

“When I faced Arturo Gatti, I went to his turf,” Mayweather said, according to “He was the A side, I was the B side. I beat him, I didn’t cry, I didn’t complain. When I faced Oscar De La Hoya, he was the A side, I was the B side. I didn’t cry, I didn’t complain, I beat him, and I became the A side. For Conor McGregor, I’m coming out of retirement, just to fight Conor McGregor.

“I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC. Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let’s fight in June. You’re the B side, I’m the A side. We’re not here to cry about money. I’m tired of all this crying about money and talking about you want to fight. You blowing smoke up everybody’s ass. If you want to fight, sign the paperwork, let’s do it.”

Floyd has now fully put the ball in Conor’s court, as well as Dana White and the UFC to find a way to get it done, especially considering all the money that will be up for grabs.

Don’t expect a response from Conor too soon however because he is busy taking some time away from the spotlight due to the birth of his first child.

Since it’s already basically mid-March, I’m not sure how realistic of a timeline June is to make the fight happen but Floyd doesn’t sound like he’s playing any games.

“Today, I’m officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor. We don’t need to waste no time. We need to make this shit happen quickly. Let’s get it on in June.”

As mentioned earlier, as long as Conor realizes that in this matchup he is nowhere near the bigger star and should accept being the “B-side” then there is no reason to not do this. Even being the B-side, Conor would still make more money for one fight with Floyd than he has for any previous fight in his career thus far and it won’t even be close.
