Irish UFC megastar Conor McGregor has rekindled his interest in a return to the boxing ring to face former foe Floyd Mayweather, in what would be a repeat of their highly-lucrative showdown from August 2017.
McGregor earned a career-best payday for his boxing crossover bout, and of course if fishing for another huge payout.
Replying to a fan on Twitter who complimented his performance, McGregor offered an analysis of one exchange from the fight’s latter rounds which shows him weaving to his right to land a hook on the American.
McGregor was critical of the shot and suggested that he wasted the opportunity.
I spoiled it with the rush right hook here. The angle was made. He was in the dirt. I just had to set correctly into my feet and fire. Rushing the right hook I lost balance on my back hand.
Great boxing fight!
A rematch will be interesting no doubt. https://t.co/bYVWhOjKO4

Whether a rematch between the two superstars ever happens is anyone’s guess.
Mayweather has indicated his preference to compete in brief ‘exhibition’ bouts moving forward, following his easy victory over Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan late last year.
McGregor needs to line up a fight with anyone at this point.
