UFC superstar Conor McGregor is still pushing the idea that a rematch with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather will take place.
Mayweather retired from the sport back in August of 2017, when he stopped McGregor in the tenth round.
Their fight generated a mountain of revenue, with the second highest pay-per-view buy rate in history.
“It was a great contest, just watched it back!,” McGregor stated.
“Early rounds all mine, and even later rounds when legs where gone, I still outlanded him. I received my credit from many notable names in the boxing world, which I was thankful for. None more so than from Mike [Tyson]. Excited for part 2.”
Tyson recently praised McGregor for that performance, in what was the MMA’s fighter’s boxing debut, reminds World Boxing News.
It is the final part of that tweet that has sparked excitement among McGregor’s followers.
“Listen, [McGregor] never really had a boxing match in his life. He went 10 rounds with the greatest fighter in the last hundred years of boxing. He went 10 rounds, scoring punches,” Tyson said.
“Did he accomplish something? Look what he had to fight against, and look at what he did when he fought against him.”
