“Floyd could take Conor McGregor for a rematch, you don’t see him taking that fight. But he’ll take a Logan Paul. He’ll take the young Japanese fighter he fought previously. I think that’s what he’s going to do, Floyd knows he would lose if he took on either Manny Pacquiao or Conor McGregor.”
Mayweather has beaten both McGregor and Pacquiao in the past. He comfortably outpointed Pacquiao during their long-awaited 2015 date for the WBO, WBA, WBC, and Ring Magazine welterweight titles, although the Filipino was injured which led to many to think the bout happened at the wrong stage of their career.
Two years later – in his final outing as a professional – Mayweather stopped McGregor in the tenth round of their contest to improve his record to a perfect 50-0. The cross-over fight generated the largest gate in boxing history and received the second most pay-per-view buys as well, which is why a rematch could be on the cards.
