- Floyd May­weather Jr has fu­elled spec­u­la­tion about fight­ing Conor McGre­gor in a UFC bout.

May­weather and UFC cham­pion McGre­gor squared up in a box­ing match last Au­gust, with the Amer­i­can com­fort­ably com­ing out on top.

The 41-year-old has dropped hints that he is ready to step into the Octagon for a re­match with the Ir­ish­man.

In a fresh in­ter­view with ABSCBN News, May­weather said that he is not ready to come out of re­tire­ment.

How­ever, he re­fused to shut the door on try­ing his hand at MMA.

“If I do hap­pen to come back, it'll be in an Octagon,” May­weather said.

“If I did, but right now, I'm not wor­ried about the Octagon or the


box­ing ring.” May­weather has up­loaded videos to so­cial me­dia of him­self un­der­go­ing MMA train­ing but he claims he is too busy en­joy­ing his re­tire­ment to think about sign­ing up for a fight.

“I’m not think­ing about fight­ing right now,” he added.

“As of right now, I'm tour­ing around the world, do­ing dif­fer­ent things, em­brac­ing my fans, get­ting love from all around the world, right now I'm just trav­el­ling.

“I don't know what the fu­ture holds, but as of right now, I'm re­tired.” UFC com­men­ta­tor Joe Ro­gan be­lieves May­weather will step foot in­side the Octagon but be­lieves a bout with CM Punk - rather than McGre­gor - is more likely.
