  • Floyd Mayweather: If I come back to fight, it 'has to be the Octagon'

Do you think we will see Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor rematch inside of the UFC's octagon?

While Mayweather has written off returning from retirement to box again, he stated emphatically on Saturday night that, if he does return, it will be in the UFC's Octagon.

He told Showtime: 'I feel that when you have reached such high status, you have to carry yourself in a classy way. "Me, I can do what I want, when I want, how I want to".

Mayweather's history includes charges including domestic violence and misdemeanour battery, including a charge levelled at him from an ex-girlfriend and while not many are condoning McGregor's conduct of late, they were quick to remind Floyd that he is no angel.

"When we fought, we both sold the fight and the world loved what we did but outside of the ring you have to be a gentleman".

"Abslutely", Mayweather answered when asked if he wanted to fight in the UFC before walking that back a little: "Only if the money is right".

Mayweather added people should know he is not serious when he says this will be his last time in the ring.

The retired boxer also weighed in McGregor's rampage at UFC 223 media day this week, which resulted in injuries to multiple fighters and led to McGregor's arrest for assault and criminal mischief. "But if I do come back, Showtime and CBS have to be involved". He was released from jail Friday on $50,000 bail and received permission to travel back to Ireland.

If Mayweather does go into an MMA fight, he said it would be weighing in at 145 pounds. But things are starting to take the same sheen of reality we saw when the McGregor vs. Mayweather boxing match went from speculation to signed and sealed.

So will Mayweather actually set foot in the Octagon at some point?

Mayweather is still claiming that he will fight in the UFC.
