UFC star Conor McGregor has revealed that he intends to return to boxing in the future, talkSPORT report.
The Irishman made his professional boxing debut back in 2017 against American Floyd Mayweather, with McGregor falling to a 10th round defeat in Las Vegas.
Since then, ‘The Notorious’ has returned to the UFC and suffered defeat to Russian rival Khabib Nurmagomedov back in October at UFC 229.
Following his fourth UFC defeat, many have been wondering as to what McGregor will do next.
And speaking to Complex Sports, McGregor was asked about his chances of returning to boxing.
Never say never, but right now I’m focusing on my family, MMA training, Proper No. Twelve Irish whiskey, and several other business ventures.
I will surely box again, but timing is not determined by me now.
When asked as who he would like to face if he did make a return to the boxing ring, McGregor said:
That is a very good question. Time will tell. We get requests and offers every week, as everyone would love a ‘red panty’ night with me so they can line their pockets with cash.
For me, I already have the money, so we fight now for the love of the game. Money is important but not the key driver for me.
The Irishman has been linked with a rematch against Mayweather, however, that appears to be extremely unlikely, so if McGregor does decide to try his luck in the boxing ring again, he may well face an unfamiliar face.
