If I make a comeback it will be in the Octagon

Therein lies a major roadblock to Mayweather (50-0 boxing) potentially fighting in the UFC as the undefeated - and now retired - boxing champion said Saturday that his TV partner, Showtime, would have to be part of any crossover event.

"It is possible I do come back, but if I do come back, it has to be in the Octagon", Mayweather said.

"I can do whatever I want, when I want to, and how I want to", he added.

McGregor eventually handed himself in to the NYPD, and Mayweather - who beat the Irishman in a much hyped boxing match in Las Vegas last August - has had his say.

The obvious conclusion people are making is that he wants to have a rematch with Conor McGregor in the world of Mixed Martial Arts.

Speaking following UFC 223 in New York City, UFC president Dana White said he's sure Mayweather would be well-compensated if he made a decision to fight in the UFC.




During the UFC 223 press day, McGregor, his good friend Lobov and members of their team rampaged the backstage area of Barclays Center and proceeded to attack one of the UFC buses containing fighters. I spoke with [Showtime parent company] CBS. Both posted bail and have been released with their court date set for June 14.

"I'm Floyd Mayweather. Absolutely, if the money is right".

One thing Mayweather said was certain was that he is done boxing.

"When I do go to the Octagon, I look at going around 145". Ringside reporter Jim Gray asked Mayweather about the rumors of a potential UFC fight in the boxer's future, and those rumors certainly won't cool down thanks to Mayweather's answers.

It culminated in McGregor throwing objects at the bus of UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov, smashing a window and injuring lightweight fighter Michael Chiesa.

"I would not box again", Mayweather told ESPN.
