Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather Reportedly ‘Arguing’ Over Fight Rules in Rematch

An much anticipated rematch between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather is edging closer, according to reports.

McGregor and Mayweather shared the ring in an illustrious boxing clash back in 2017 which became the second highest-selling combat sports pay-per-view of all time. McGregor ultimately came up short and returned to the UFC but has always remained open to a boxing return. Reports indicated previously that the pair were holding talks over a potential sequel, with McGregor appearing to hint at a second fight on social media by posting: “I accept.”

“A report from The Sun has now suggested that a rematch between the pair is ‘very close’ to being made, and it has been suggested that the pair are now ‘arguing’ over the potential fight rules. A source told The Sun : “Conor will only take the fight providing Floyd is willing to put his professional record on the line – so the fight will not be an exhibition, it will be an official fight. It will be at 155lb. That’s what we know so far.

“It will be the last time Floyd ever steps in the ring so it is not one to miss. The deal is very close to being done. Personal terms have been agreed on both parties. It will be one final showdown. And yes records will be at stake. Floyd sees it as the end of the Mayweather era and the beginning of the Gervonta Davis era.

“He believes it will be the biggest night boxing will have ever seen and has been saying ‘People best be ready because it’s going to be something spectacular’. There are arguments about the rounds at the moment with Conor’s team wanting 10 rounds. But the deal and rights are certainly getting there.”

They are reportedly also trying to hash out the length of the fight:

“There are arguments about the rounds at the moment with Connor’s team wanting 10 rounds. But the deal and rights are certainly getting there.”

Whatever the case is, of course it’s going to rack up major PPV dollars. But I’m not buying Floyd will accept the fight if it could  go on his record.

No amount of money is going to put him at risk to  lose his undefeated status.
