Mayweather vs McGregor rematch is close: One boxing and one MMA fight for 1.5bn dollars

There could finally be a rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, or technically two rematches.

They would first duel in the boxing ring, like they did when they met in Las Vegas in 2017, before a fight in the MMA octagon.

The proposal is for both fights to be official, which would mean Mayweather would put his 50-0 undefeated professional boxing record on the line, returning to the ring competitively after only participating in exhibition bouts since defeating McGregor, as this was the win that got him to 50.

The American has had four exhibition fights in total, as in December 2018 he defeated Tenshin Nasukawa, in June 2021 met YouTuber Logan Paul in a bout that lasted all eight scheduled eight rounds, in May 2022 he was taken the distance by Don Moore and last week he knocked out Japanese MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura.

In November, Mayweather has another boxing exhibition event scheduled in Dubai, this time against 25-year-old Deji, a YouTube star who has made the jump to boxing.

McGregor, meanwhile, hasn't fought at all since breaking his ankle during a fight with Dustin Poirier in July 2021.

The Irishman has two fights remaining on his current UFC contract and that could cause some issues when it comes to the contract with Mayweather.

When will Mayweather fight McGregor again?

According to The Sun, the contract for these two fights would be worth a record 1.5 billion dollars, if they can get it signed, sealed and delivered.
