Floyd Mayweather Hits Out At Conor McGregor Over His Retirement Claim

McGregor, who has already outlined the real reasons for his retirement, took to Instagram on Sunday and posted a photo of his 'retirement' cake.

'Money' wrote in the comments: "If I'm not mistaken, didn't you tell Mike Tyson you could beat me if we fought a second time? Now you're quitting!

Mayweather, who retired in 2017 with an undefeated 50-0 record, secured a 10th-round TKO victory over McGregor in their boxing super-fight.

The former five-division world champ teased fans in February that he was open to the idea of a rematch and would 'whip his a**e' in another fight.

Mayweather has since continued to take shots at McGregor and even called him out during a training session in April.

UFC president Dana White has said that he would welcome McGregor's retirement, despite claiming he would miss him should he never choose to fight again.
