Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are reportedly in talks about a stunning boxing match.

McGregor, who hasn’t fought in nearly a year since suffering a horribly broken leg in his defeat to Dustin Poirier, shared a photo of his clash with Mayweather on Instagram on Thursday night.
Alongside the photo, he alluded to the pair facing each other one more time as he wrote, “I accept.”
Mayweather’s win against The Notorious turned out to be his last pro fight ever, taking his record to 50 wins and zero losses or draws.
It’s uncertain whether a rematch between the pair would be another exhibition game, or whether Mayweather would turn it into another professional fight.
Mayweather’s win over McGregor was the last pro game of his career and has a 50-0 . record
From their original fight, Mayweather reportedly earned a huge purse worth about $280 million, with McGregor receiving $130 million.
The fight was McGregor’s first and only boxing fight and has since suffered three defeats in his last four UFC fights.
Speaking to Sky Sports while attending the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix, McGregor confirmed that he plans to return to the boxing ring in the future.
McGregor said, “Boxing is my first love in martial arts. I had such a great time the last time I was there.
