The ex-champion of UFC in two weight categories Conor McGregor (21-4) said he was willing to have a rematch with former world champion in five weight categories American Floyd Mayweather (50-0, 27 KO’s).
“At the moment with a hook in the eighth round I rushed it a bit and, unfortunately, ruined it. The angle was correct, he got caught. I had to stand right and strike. But because of the rush I lost my balance.
It was a great Boxing match. By the way, the rematch will be a very interesting idea, no doubt,” wrote McGregor on his Twitter page.
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
