Mayweather confirmed to Daily Mail that he will box McGregor in 2023 but said details about the fight are yet to be finalised. Mayweather will fight in Japan this Sunday in an exhibition match.
“I want to go out there this weekend and have fun. Then I have another exhibition in Dubai in November and me and Conor McGregor in 2023, he said.
“So, guys like Conor McGregor and guys that don’t really hit hard such as YouTubers or UFC guys, I don’t really mind colliding with those kinds of individuals.
Since their huge bout in 2017, none of these two stars has boxed in a professional fight. McGregor has since returned to UFC, while Mayweather has fought in lucrative exhibition matches.
Speaking to Sky Sports in May, McGregor revealed his intentions to return to boxing.
Boxing is my first love in combat sports. I had such a great time the last time I was out there.
In their 2017 bout, Mayweather reportedly made a whopping $280 million, while McGregor is reported to have received $130 million.
