Did Conor McGregor Close Door On Possible Floyd Mayweather Rematch?

Maybe Floyd Mayweather Jr. is done with combat sports after all.

Mayweather initially hung up his gloves after his 49th boxing victory, but he came out of retirement for a superfight with Conor McGregor, which Mayweather won via 10th-round TKO.

The Mayweather-McGregor feud didn’t end after the late-summer clash, though, as the two superstars have continued their war of words via social media. And as the trash talk intensified, rumors began to circulate that there would be a rematch, only this time it would be in the octagon.

It’s unclear how legitimate this UFC megabout really is, but it appears Money Mayweather might be shying away from the idea. In an Instagram photo shared Sunday morning, McGregor called out Mayweather for backing out of the negotiations.

I am happy for Floyd and his recent announcement that he is out of these current fight negotiations. It is the reason I never seeked the rematch in the first place. I was happy for him in retirement. My game is a very unforgiving one. It is not like other games. I understand completely him staying retired. I will now carry on in my negotiations and see where it goes. Have a great retirement Junior. Now come here and give your old man a hug for old times sake. I'm proud of you son. Yours truly, Senior.

Mayweather has yet to respond to McGregor’s latest smack talk, but if he does, we likely will get a better understanding of how serious this potential rematch is.
