Soon after his win, Mayweather put up an Instagram post, teasing a possible rematch with McGregor. The UFC star was then asked bout the Instagram post, to which he jokingly replied that he’d fight against Manny Pacquiao as he forgot to add ‘McGregor Sport and Entertainment’ in the picture.
“He forgot McGregor Sport and Entertainment so it’s me against Manny [Pacquiao]! Ould Floyd, he’s a funny man. Discussions are always ongoing, they never stop. You know Floyd and going through money *fast*, so he’s far from retired and that rematch will happen at some stage,” he said.
