Get the details on the flip on Floyd Mayweather willing to step out of retirement to fight Conor McGregor…
On Saturday, Floyd made the official announcement:
This is only “for Conor McGregor, I’m coming out of retirement … just to fight Conor McGregor.”
The boxing champion is tired of all the excuses coming from the UFC and the delays. He is now putting the ball in Conor McGregor’s court. He is tired of Conor blowing smoke up everyone’s @ss about fighting Floyd Mayweather.
“I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC. 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.”

Meanwhile UFC president Dana White is “claiming” that the Mayweather vs McGregor fight isn’t likely to happen because negotiations are falling apart.
As of, February there is still no deal, but this is March. It’s time to step up and put your money where your mouth is per Floyd.
He seems to be taking a firm position now. After all the back-and-fourth between these two, Floyd Mayweather is willing, if a deal can be struck.
Floyd is now calling him out to fight in June. Now we can see if Conor will step up to the plate or is he BS!
Here is what he said on March 9th:
Well Dana, it’s on you now?
