A rematch between the pair has remained a distinct possibility, with SunSport revealing talks between both parties on multiple occasions.

Mayweather recently claimed a second showdown with the southpaw was on the cards, telling The Daily Mail: “I want to go out there this weekend and have fun.

“Then I have another exhibition [in] Dubai in November and me and Conor McGregor in 2023.

“We don’t know if it’s going to be an exhibition or a real fight.

“But there’s been talks of both. I would prefer an exhibition.

“I am not into fights where I am going to take any real punishment.

“So, guys like Conor McGregor and guys that don’t really hit hard such as YouTubers or UFC guys.

“I don’t really mind colliding with those kinds of individuals but nothing where I am going to put myself in a position where I am going to harm myself or hurt myself.”

McGregor responded by tweeting a picture of himself uppercutting Mayweather with the accompanying caption: “#notinterested.”

Boxing legend Mayweather was last in action in November in an exhibition bout with YouTuber Deji.

McGregor, meanwhile, hasn’t fought since breaking his leg in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier last July.
