Boxing media review: Mayweather and McGregor make headlines once again


LIKE it or not, Conor McGregor is not done with boxing. He made an extraordinary amount of money losing to Floyd Mayweather in his professional debut in 2017, and confirmed to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani that he intends to return to the ring soon. Speaking ahead of his UFC return against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone over the weekend, McGregor expressed his intention to win an actual boxing world title, and then laughed off the suggestion that he’d need to work his way into a title shot first.

Even given his star power, the notion that McGregor – a wildly successful mixed martial artist but a novice boxer at best – could actually claim a recognised strap is bonkers.
