Mayweather closes door on McGregor

Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather has revealed that he will not fight UFC star Conor McGregor after all.

After months of speculation, the retired pound-for-pound King has finally called quits on the prospective megafight.

“I tried to make the fight happen between me and Conor McGregor,” the 39-year-old told Fight Hype.

“We weren’t able to make it happen so we must move on.

“I feel honoured to be the biggest name in MMA and boxing when I don’t even compete anymore.”

Mayweather retired with 49 consecutive wins over a year ago but is widely expected to return in an effort to break Rocky Marciano’s record, which also stands at 49 wins.
