Retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is done with the Conor McGregor fight speculation. The undefeated boxer has announced the bout’s fate.
In a new interview, Mayweather explained why the McGregor face-off is now a past thought.
It was fun while it lasted, but Floyd Mayweather put the Conor McGregor hype train out of service on Saturday. Mayweather, in an interview with FightHype.com, said that it is time for him to move on from trying to put a fight together with McGregor. “I tried to make the fight happen between me and Conor McGregor,” Mayweather said. “We wasn’t able to make the fight happen, so we must move on.” (Yahoo!

In late May, Floyd teased fans with a promotional advertisement featuring himself and McGregor.
Recently, G-Unit boss 50 Cent spoke out on Floyd likely coming out of his retirement.
“Floyd and I are really good friends, but we argue like regular people argue. The difference is when we have disputes, it winds up on CNN or Instagram. I can cuss him out, call him names, say whatever I want to him, but he’s my little brother. Every fighter says he’s going to retire—what’s left when you fight the biggest, most highly anticipated fight? But I do think he’ll fight again.” (Vanity Fair)
A few months ago, Floyd discussed the possibility of lacing up again to fight McGregor.
“It’s really not a rumor. The fight may happen. We really don’t know, as of right now. As of right now. But do I think the fight will happen? Absolutely. We’re the A-side, of course. It has to be a boxing match, because most fights that Conor McGregor won inside the Octagon, he was a stand-up guy. So I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be a tough fight for me. We really don’t know as of right now, but there’s been a lot of talk, and hopefully we can make the fight happen.” (Bad Left Hook)
