Floyd Mayweather, who is currently in the UK on a tour to meet his fans, has officially ended the retirement he had been in since his September 2015 win over Andre Berto – so that’s 18 months if you’re keeping count.

Talking to the fans and media in attendance at Liverpool’s Auditorium last night, the 40 year-old star said he is “tired” of the excuses MMA star Conor McGregor is making with regards to making a fight with him, and Floyd said he has “officially” ended his retirement as he aims for McGregor.

If Mayweather had officially ended his retirement to fight a reigning welterweight champion, fans would almost certainly be a whole lot more excited than they will be at the news regarding this, the latest instalment in the Floyd-McGregor saga. But it’s clear Mayweather really, really wants to fight McGregor. And we all know why: in a boxing match, for a mega fee of $100 million, Mayweather would literally clean up big time.

But will McGregor agree to a fight in June, will he be allowed to do so? If not, Mayweather’s break from retirement will not last very long at all.

But do fight fans really crave a Mayweather Vs. McGregor showdown as much as the self proclaimed A-side does? Would anyone really be willing to give McGregor even a small chance of being able to hit Floyd, even once?
