Conor McGregor tells Floyd Mayweather 'we can go again' in rematch as UFC star reveals 'for sure I will box again'

CONOR McGREGOR told Floyd Mayweather 'we can go again' in a rematch as he revealed: 'For sure I will box again'.

The former two-weight UFC champion made his boxing debut in 2017 to Mayweather, losing in round ten.

He was then in talks to fight Manny Pacquiao, 42, before making his UFC comeback in January with a rematch against Dustin Poirier, 32, who he beat in 2014.

But after Poirier knocked the Irishman out, his return to the boxing ring was shelved.

McGregor, 32, admitted to putting too much emphasis on boxing before the defeat, as he faces Poirier in a trilogy decider on Saturday.

Ahead of the UFC 264 headliner, he has vowed to focus solely on MMA, but did not close the door on another venture into the ring.

McGregor told ESPN's Stephen A Smith:"For sure I'll box again.

"Like I'm back on the sites, the boxing is not even on the radar at the minute. But I will do of course."

Mayweather, 44, officially retired after beating McGregor, in a lucrative fight which grossed close to £600MILLION.

But the UFC legend insisted he was the draw behind the crossover bout and his rival should be the grateful one.

McGregor explained: "Stephen, Floyd didn't make me anything. I was on the Forbes list before Floyd. I brought Floyd out the gutter with it.

"Because Floyd had the Andre Berto fight before that and it was like 300,000 buys.

"It was me that made Floyd."

Mayweather has returned twice since his win against McGregor, but both in exhibition bouts.

The first was with featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan, which ended in round one.

But more recently he gave away TWO STONE against YouTuber Logan Paul, 26, which went the full eight round distance.

McGregor blasted Mayweather for the bizarre fight, which ended without a winner as there was no knockout scored, and opened the door to a rematch.

He said: "I have no problem with Floyd, it wasn't a good look for him to face against that man (Logan Paul) in his last one.

"It didn't feel right, even he didn't feel right, you could see it in him. We can go again if he wants.

"I feel that's going to happen at some stage down the line."
