Conor McGregor Drops Hint At Boxing Return After UFC Retirement

Conor McGregor has dropped a huge hint that he could return to boxing following his UFC retirement.

He penned an emotional statement on social media as he walked away from the UFC, but fans are dreaming of 'The Notorious' stepping inside the squared circle once again after his latest training pictures.

The former UFC double champion got fight fans talking after he uploaded a series of pictures of himself training at Crumlin boxing club.

On Instagram, he wrote: "Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there, especially my own father and Dee's Da.

"I got to spend the day with loved ones at Crumlin boxing club. Not a bad day at all!

"Have a good one everyone. Sláinte."

McGregor's post sent social media wild with fans speculating a blockbuster rematch against Floyd Mayweather.

One Instagram user wrote: "Does this mean the fight with Mayweather is on?"

Another wrote: "Can see Mayweather next... Can take the fighter outta the fight, but ya can't take the fight outta the fighter. Go champ."

Of course, McGregor fought Mayweather in August 2017. The lucrative Las Vegas clash remains his only professional boxing bout. He has since been linked with fights against Manny Pacquiao and Paulie Malignaggi.

Meanwhile, UFC president Dana White is adamant McGregor is done with fighting inside the Octagon.

When asked about contacting the Irishman, he replied: "No! Conor McGregor is retired.

"I don't chase guys that don't want to fight. I don't chase guys. We offer guys three fights a year. You get three fights a year, if you don't want to fight, I've got a roster full of people who want to fight."

McGregor only returned to the UFC in January after a 15-month hiatus. Will he stay retired?
