Peace pipe laid down as Floyd Mayweather, Conor McGregor continue feud with fresh exchange

On August 26, 2017, Mayweather and McGregor crossed codes in a money-making venture which saw the major bodies of combat sports collide in the boxing ring.

Plenty of animosities filled the run-up to the T-Mobile Arena contest as the pair made millions in the second most lucrative Pay-Per-View of all time in Las Vegas.

Twelve months on, and nothing seems to have changed.

Despite an offer to help facilitate him for a forthcoming return to UFC, Mayweather followed up his offer with a social media post mocking McGregor as his easiest work to date.

Easiest 9 figures I ever made! All work is what? #mayweatherpromotions #TMT #TBE

McGregor unsurprisingly followed with his own response of ‘F*** the Mayweathers’ as ‘The Notorious’ continues his preparations for a massive encounter with Khabib Nurmagomedov in October.

Mayweather, on the other hand, seems to be firmly retired this time around having extended his world tour of travelling and shown no signs of having the desire to stay in the gym.

A confirmed MMA switch came and went in 2018, whilst rumors of a rematch with McGregor didn’t get off the ground.

One of the only major possibilities for any future Mayweather comeback could be a second battle with the rejuvenated Manny Pacquiao, although selling that fight to the fans again would be a tough ask.

Pacquiao remains Mayweather’s most lucrative night’s work in May 2015 but the fallout from a drab affair has put the blockers on a return ever since.

Claiming another version of the world title at the age of 39 proved Pacquiao still has something to offer and it seems to be purely Mayweather’s call as to if negotiations begin again.

Making the public wait five years for the first bout was bad enough in the initial offering, though, and it’s unlikely the majority of paying punters would fork out another hundred bucks for the privilege again.
