Floyd Mayweather Sends Conor McGregor A Stark Warning!

Once again, the Notorious shock the world (or not) with his decision to retire from professional fighting. If you didn’t remember, this is not the first time that the Irishman has pulled such a stun. He has announced his retirement twice, only to come back after. As a result, many are questioning that this will be another case of the boy who cried wolf. On one side, we have Ben Askren describing this as a negotiating tactic of McGregor to deal with UFC. 

Furthermore, other big names like Khabib Nurmagamedov and Justin Gaetjhe also recently commented on the situation. Now, the next person to speak out is Floyd Mayweather. The unbeaten champion sent a warning to the Notorious. Mayweather was quick to leave a response when the Irishman shared a picture of a cake with the words ‘Happy Retirement Daddy’ on social media. “If I’m not mistaken, didn’t you tell Mike Tyson you could beat me if we fought a second time?

Now you’re quitting! I thought you wanted to beat the best? Well, if you decide to come back, I will be waiting to punish you again”. They fought back in 2017, with Mayweather gaining victory by 10th round TKO. Could this be a suggestion for a rematch? 

The pair fought in 2017 in Madison Square Garden. Mayweather won by 10th round TKO, but both men made a fortune. Check out ‘Money’s’ comments below. Is he angling for a rematch? Moreover, Mayweather has also retired from fighting. However, he could be tempted for a comeback if the paycheck is good. “If I see an opportunity to entertain and have a little fun and make $600 million, why not? If I were to come back, why come back and fight a fighter who can only sell out little cities? I like to face guys that got countries behind them. If I am going to do something, it’s got to be worth it”, he shared with the press. 

Faking it?

On the other hand, former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping also thinks that the Irishman is faking it. The current ESPN analyst and commentator talked about the issue during his new podcast. “He’s bigger than all the other stars put together, to be honest. He’s the cash cow, simple as that. There’s money to be made, and I don’t think he’s going to leave that. He has achieved a lot; he has a huge brand name, and he doesn’t really need to fight again. So maybe there is [truth], but I doubt it is a real retirement.”
