Floyd Mayweather Responds To Fighting Conor McGregor In An MMA Super-Fight

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has rubbished the idea that he would step into the octagon for an MMA super-fight with Irish superstar Conor McGregor.

But Mayweather, who retired undefeated with a 50-0 boxing record, explained why he wouldn't fight the 'Notorious' under MMA rules.

'Money' told Forbes: "No [I won't compete in MMA].

"I think just like how winning teams receive home-field advantage in the playoffs [...] you don't fix what isn't broken, and my record isn't broken."

McGregor, 32, made his UFC return in January and secured a sensational first-round win over Donald Cerrone in Las Vegas.

Mayweather insisted that he is "happily retired" for now, but he refused to rule out a potential boxing rematch with McGregor.
