Floyd Mayweather may be retired but he certainly seems like he’s ready to return to action for a lucrative super fight against UFC superstar Conor McGregor.
On Tuesday, Mayweather and McGregor exchanged a pair of messages over social media after reports surfaced that the two sides had come to a verbal agreement on financial terms for a fight.
McGregor took a trip to Las Vegas this week, which spurred rumors that he was going there to meet with Mayweather regarding their long talked about boxing match. In reality, McGregor was traveling to Nevada to meet with the state commission to ask for a second hearing regarding his punishment for the UFC 202 press conference melee, which resulted in a $75,000 fine, a $75,000 public service announcement and 50 hours of community service.
The good news is McGregor clearing up matters with the commission would then allow him to obtain a boxing license in Nevada, which would then move the fight with Mayweather one step closer to reality.
Following all that news, Mayweather took to Twitter on Wednesday to send another message to McGregor telling the current lightweight champion to handle his business so they can put this mega fight together once and for all.
