Conor McGregor has hinted he is “not interested” in a rematch with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.
Former multiweight champion Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round of their 2017 clash that went down as professional competition, and the American claimed this week that a 2023 rematch is in the works.
However, former UFC doubleweight champion McGregor has poured cold water on that claim.
On Wednesday (September 21) the Irishman posted a photo of his fight with Mayweather to Instagram with the caption: “#notinterested”.
Mayweather, 45, retired with a 50-0 record and has since competed in exhibition bouts against YouTuber Jake Paul, kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa and boxer Don Moore.
He meets mixed martial artist Mikuru Asakura in Japan on Saturday (September 24) and YouTuber Deji in Dubai in November.
Meanwhile, McGregor’s clash with Mayweather marked the 34-year-old’s only appearance in professional boxing to date. Since that fight, the Irishman has fought four times in the UFC, losing to Dustin Poirier (twice) and Khabib Nurmagomedov and defeating Donald Cerrone.
In his last fight against Poirier last July, McGregor suffered a broken leg. He is expected back in the Octagon in early 2023.
