One of those topics was his boxing contest with Floyd Mayweather. McGregor said he wanted to fight Mayweather again, adding that he was certain that he would win a rematch.
Speaking to TMZ Sports over the weekend, Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, was asked his opinion on McGregor’s comments.
“If Conor McGregor wants some of that smoke again, he knows what he’s gotta do. He knows what he’s gotta do. All he’s gotta do is call Dana.
“I can not speak for Floyd. I can not do that because we haven’t had one conversation about Conor McGregor. I tell you what, if Conor McGregor wants that ass whopping again, I’m sure Floyd would oblige to that.”
