Conor McGregor boasted will defeat Manny Pacquiao and He Will ‘Finish’ Floyd Mayweather in a Rematch: “For Sure”
Conor McGregor, the former UFC lightweight champion, seems to be in high spirits following his recovery from a leg injury. ‘The Notorious’ is presently getting ready for his UFC comeback. Even though the exact date for his return hasn’t been confirmed yet, McGregor is already making confident statements about taking on boxing legends. Later this year, the Irishman will face off inside the cage against fellow lightweight combatant Michael Chandler.
However, it appears that McGregor is also intrigued by other forms of combat sports and already has a lineup of opponents he’d be interested in fighting. Or could it simply be his usual trash-talking antics?
Conor McGregor has been making bold claims about defeating both Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather.
Recently, McGregor’s Paradigm Sports Management won a two-year-long legal battle against Manny Pacquiao, resulting in the Filipino boxing legend being ordered to pay over $8 million for a breach of contract.
McGregor didn’t waste any time in taunting Pacquiao, which upset many of Pacquiao’s fans. On Twitter, while responding to one of Pacquiao’s fans, McGregor not only criticized the legendary boxer but also boasted about how he would “blow his h.ea.d off” in a bare-knuckle brawl.
McGregor was later spotted in Beverly Hills, where he had a conversation with Inside Fighting. When asked about the possibility of a rematch with Floyd Mayweather, ‘The Notorious One’ expressed confidence in making adjustments to his boxing style and ultimately defeating ‘TBE’ (The Best Ever).
McGregor stated, “For sure… I had a long time to think about it and analyze it… I would surely look to finish him. I would love to go back to my old boxing coaches, whom I reunited with post-fight. I believe my style has evolved.”
The initial McGregor vs. Mayweather bout was undeniably one of the most significant events in the history of combat sports, leading to ongoing discussions about a potential rematch between the two fighters. However, whether this mega-fight will actually happen remains uncertain at this point.
Conor McGregor X BKFC: Will it happen?
As of now, there are no concrete plans for Conor McGregor to switch to bare-knuckle fighting with BKFC. He is currently scheduled to fight Michael Chandler in the UFC later this year, but the exact date and location have not been confirmed yet.
While McGregor’s appearance at the BKFC 41 event and his face-off with Mike Perry sparked speculation about his interest in bare-knuckle boxing, it’s important to remember that fighters often engage in promotional activities and interactions to generate buzz and excitement among fans.
Regarding McGregor’s claims about defeating Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, such statements are not unusual for him. McGregor is known for his confidence and bravado, and it’s not uncommon for fighters to express their belief in their abilities and talk about potential future matchups. Whether these fights will actually happen remains to be seen.
As for whether fans would like to see McGregor in BKFC, opinions may vary. Some fans might be intrigued by the prospect of seeing him compete in a different combat sports organization, while others may prefer to see him continue his career in MMA or boxing.
Ultimately, the world of combat sports is full of possibilities and surprises, and McGregor’s career has been anything but predictable. Fans will undoubtedly keep a close eye on his journey and eagerly await news of any potential future endeavors, whether in the UFC, boxing, or beyond.
