Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor is apparently happening sooner than later.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, “Floyd Mayweather has confirmed [that] a 2023 rematch with Conor McGregor is in the pipeline.”
As of now, there’s no date confirmed just yet and it’s not clear whether it’ll be an exhibition or a real fight.
‼️ Floyd Mayweather has now declared that a Conor McGregor rematch is in final negotiations to potentially take place in 2023. He said: "We don't know if it's going to be an exhibition or a real fight, but there's been talks of both. I would prefer an exhibition." [@MailSport]

UFC president Dana White has already shut down any potential Mayweather-McGregor rematch talks.
“All bull—,” White said when recently asked about the rematch rumors. “Those guys are just talking on social media like they do. The Daily Mirror or whatever the hell that tabloid is called is full of s—-.”
What would it take for Dana White to want to discuss making a Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor rematch?

Fans don’t seem very interested for another McGregor-Mayweather fight.
Why is this happening?
No one is asking to see this. https://t.co/5mR6fY4Ats

I can't believe I am saying this but I'm more interested in Jake Paul fighting. I have zero interest in watching this. https://t.co/OxAhKyrzxo

People will say they don't want this circus but they will still pay for the $70 ppv and it will easily do 2.5+ million ppv buys. https://t.co/a6K0wc2Psn
