The rematch between Mcgregor and Mayweather has been generating intrigue in the world of combat sports for months now. The parties are in full negotiations for the new crossover between the stars of boxing and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) after the first showdown in 2017. Now the possible venue for the second fight has been unveiled: a luxury ship.
Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. They have been teasing a rematch for that match they had on August 26, 2017. That match was taken by the multi-time boxing champion by technical knockout in the tenth round. Now the boxer will pause his retirement, and a new face-to-face with the Irishman is expected.
Will they fight on a ship?
As reported by The Sun newspaper, Mayweather is taking the initiative to celebrate the fight in the ring on a luxury ship in Saudi Arabia. Given the global health situation, the boxer seeks lucrative alternatives outside the big arenas and the luxury ship seems to be an option that fighters are considering.
In the first fight, there were more than 4.4 million pay-per-view viewers in the United States alone. In addition, there were more than 16,000 spectators at the T-Mobile Arena in the city of Las Vegas. The event was a record-breaking fundraiser, having raised more than $ 1 billion. The American is estimated to have pocketed about $ 300 million from the fight, while the Irishman about $ 100 million.
Floyd heats up the wait
After the defeat of Mcgregor in the UFC fight against Dustin Poirier, Floyd Mayweather Jr. published a message that adds tension to the prelude to a possible second meeting. “My opinion is that the world knows that McLoser can steal everything from me and be loved, while I am hated. That lets everyone know that racism still exists. But know that that tramp will never be me, nor will he be at my level. My mentality is on another planet, my skills are second to none, I am a natural winner and yes, I talk a lot, but I always support him.
