If you are waiting to see the super fight between the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, then you dream will never convert into reality. All the speculations and rumors about this much awaited fight came to an end when Floyd Mayweather conceded that this fight will not happen. This was a shocking statement for all those fans that were eagerly waiting to see the super-fight. It was also a disappointment for the online boxing betting.
In September 2015, Mayweather took the official retirement from the boxing. He took the decision just after defeating Andre Berto. He took this step to maintain his unbeatable professional record. He did not want to see any failure in the last phase of his boxing career. But he made it clear that he might continue fighting with McGregor. McGregor is a twenty-eight-year-old mixed martial artist. He is the attraction of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Mayweather has confirmed in the FightHype.com that he tried his best to make a fight happen between him and Conor McGregor. But that did not happen. They found it difficult to make it possible. Hence, it is better to move on instead of waiting for such a fight that will never happen. The super champion is feeling happy with his previous achievements and for being the biggest and a popular name in the boxing and MMA. He does not want to compete in any other fight.
His declaration disappointed all his fans. They were waiting to see a possible fight that was almost decided after the McGregor statement. He said that he is open to the possible fight if he gets the right money for this purpose. But to the dismay of the fans, that did not happen for any unknown reason and will not happen again.
Both of them were prepared for such fights. They were ready for specific rules for the protection. But they were looking to get more money from this fight. Both Mayweather and McGregor were prepared to fight under the safety nets with the money. Even Mayweather tried to make it possible and to arrange a fight between the two. But he could not make it possible.
McGregor is fighting under the UFC contract. That makes it possible for him to fight any bout without the sanction of the organization. Dana White, the UFC president, said that no one has contacted him to arrange a fight between the McGregor and Mayweather.
It is not the Mayweather only who was looking for a super fight with Conor McGregor. Another name has also come to the public. The Great Britain’s Amir Khan has also shown interest to fight with McGregor for two fights on separate occasions.
Both Mayweather and McGregor are blaming each other for such situation. When Floyd Mayweather said that he tried his best for the fighting, Conor is saying that Mayweather was not interested in such fights.
If Conor and Khan are going to do it, then it will be definitely a welcome step for the fans. It will be certainly appreciated by the fans. Hopefully, two fights will be arranged on different occasions.
