Mayweather: I'm coming out of retirement just to fight McGregor

In a posting on the MMA website, the 40-year-old American said he wants to face McGregor, 28, in June.

“For Conor McGregor, I’m coming out of retirement, just to fight Conor McGregor,” Mayweather told FightHype, according to the posting.

“Today, I’m officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor. We don’t need to waste no time. We need to make this… happen quickly. Let’s get it on in June.”

Mayweather had matched Rocky Marciano’s iconic 49-0 unbeaten career record when he walked away from boxing as the welterweight champion in 2015.

Speculation of a Mayweather-McGregor fight has intensified in recent months, with the US star saying he is willing to meet McGregor in a boxing ring.

McGregor, however, is under contract to the Ultimate Fighting Championship series, which would have to approve any deal for the bout to happen.

“I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC,” Mayweather said. “Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let’s fight in June. If you want to fight, sign the paperwork, let’s do it.”

McGregor is on a break for the impending birth of his first child, a son with his long-time girlfriend Dee Devlin, who is due to give birth in May.

IN PICS: Boxing's five worst injuries

Sport360 staff 10/03/2017

The sport of Boxing has seen some horrific injuries in its history, a very natural result of two people beating each other up in a ring.

From giant cuts and bruises to broken bones all over the body, there are numerous examples of boxers going through hell in their profession.

From Evander Holyfield being bitten by Mike Tyson in an epic clash to Vitali Klitschko suffering a massive cut above his eye against Lennox Lewis, here are the five worst boxing injuries ever.

  EVANDER HOLYFIELD This list has to start with the most famous injury of all, with Mike Tyson biting off Holyfield’s ear in their 1997 bout. RICHARD GRANT He suffered a post-fight broken jaw after James Butler sucker punched him following their 10-round fight in 2001. FRANKIE CAMPBELL Arguably the most gruesome injury ever suffered in a ring, he literally had his brain knocked loose from his skull in 1930. VITALI KLITSCHKO The Ukrainian was left extremely bloody when Lennox Lewis gave him a major cut above his eye in a 2003 fight. HASIM RAHMAN There’s swelling and then there’s what Rahman suffered when Evander Holyfield gave him this football-sized lump.
