UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 27, and Floyd Mayweather, 39, can be see looking into the whites of each other’s eyes in a poster circulating online that’s sure to wet the appetite of the biggest MMA and boxing fans in the world. Does this mean the fight will happen?
While it’s not been officially confirmed, a report from UK newspaper The Sun claimed that talks had taken place for a fight between Conor and Floyd and that a ridiculous 9-figure sum was being drawn up. Whether that’s an MMA fight or a boxing one, that’s all up in the air.
But a poster, uploaded by Conor himself on his official Instagram, does have fight fans licking their lips that the impossible might just become a reality. Can you imagine that? It wouldn’t just be the fight of the year, it would be the fight of the century!
Conor simply captioned the image as it is, “MMA Vs. Boxing” but that doesn’t exactly help us out here… is the fight on, guys? If so, when can we expect it?
Intriguingly, Floyd also added fuel to the fire during an appearance in Las Vegas on May 7 before the Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez Vs. Amir Khan fight when he was asked about the fight happening. “It’s possible,” he said. “He was one of the names thrown at me, but the rumors you’ve been hearing are the rumors I’ve been starting. But they might not be a rumor.” This is such a riddle!
Why can’t these fellas just come out and say it’s on, instead of teasing us? And if it happens, where,when and how? Whatever it would be we’d watch!
