It’s been nearly a year now Floyd Mayweather has been continuously spreading rumor on a potential match up with Conor McGregor inside the four cornered ring. Following tons of back-and-forth exchanges with McGregor via social media, Mayweather has now confirmed that he is coming out of retirement exclusively for the Irish sensation.
During Meaweather’s United Kingdon tour, the former undefeated five-division world champion announced the news and even suggesting to fight McGregor in June.
When I faced Arturo Gatti, I went to his turf. 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, 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. 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.
Today, I’m officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor. We don’t need to waste no time. We need to make this s**t happen quickly. Let’s get it on in June.

After the birth the UFC lightweight champ is expected to make a return in the UFC, or perhaps challenge Mayweather in a super-fight under the unified rules of boxing.
