Floyd Mayweather has confirmed he has agreed to rematch Conor McGregor in 2023 as the pair wait to decide whether the clash will be a professional or exhibition bout. Money, who secured the 50th and final win of his career when he stopped the UFC megastar in 2017, has boxed in a host of exhibition contests since his retirement as he continues to relish a challenge.
Now he has revealed to The Mail that he plans to face rival McGregor for a second time next year.
He said: “I want to go out there this weekend and have fun [against Mikuru Asakura]. Then I have another exhibition Dubai in November and me and Conor McGregor in 2023.
“We don’t know if it’s going to be an exhibition of a real fight. But there’s been talks of both. I would prefer an exhibition.
“When asked why he would prefer an exhibition, Mayweather added: “I am not into fights where I am going to take any real punishment.
“So, guys like Conor McGregor and guys that don’t really hit hard such as YouTubers or UFC guys, I don’t really mind colliding with those kinds of individuals but nothing where I am going to put myself in a position where I am going to harm myself or hurt myself.” (Express)
