Mayweather v McGregor Fight NOT the Richest in Boxing History - Showtime

McGregor lost a 10th-round TKO to Floyd Mayweather in a lucrative boxing match in August.

McGregor made the switch to boxing for the first time in August, losing to Floyd Mayweather via a 10th round knockout.

"I think a true fight is what I want to do next", said the 2-division MMA champion. "A real fight", McGregor said while signing autographs.

Conor McGregor has played down rumours of another step into the boxing ring, this time against Manny Pacquiao, by revealing that he wants his next fight to be back under MMA rules in the UFC.

UFC president Dana White quickly refuted those claims and even stated he'd sue Pacquiao and his representatives if they attempted to do so.

As WBC minimumweight champion Wanheng Menayothin (49-0) closes on his ideal 50-0 record, Mayweather may well get itchy knuckles to fight again, although the only way to stave off the Thai scrapper would be to once again trade blows in a boxing ring.

Then, while fielding other questions about his next move, McGregor said "MMA next".

However, Notorious is going to be in no rush to make this fight happen since he has $100 million in the bank after fighting against Mayweather during the summer.

The UFC Lightweight Champion has also been linked to pro wrestling in the past, but the fighter gave a pretty simple answer when asked if there may be a future in sports entertainment. I'll sit back. We'll see how he gets on with this round of money. I can come right back to the UFC.
