Conor McGregor ‘fully expects’ to box again and says he is open to fighting anyone including Mayweather and Pacquiao – The Sun

CONOR MCGREGOR has revealed he "fully expects" to box again – and is open to fighting ANYONE.

The UFC icon was famously stopped by Floyd Mayweather in the tenth round when he made his professional boxing debut in 2017.

But the Irish hardman has fuelled rumours that he will step back into the boxing ring one day.

Speaking to Bleacher Report, the 31-year-old said: "I am willing to fight anyone and have proved that time and time again.

"I look for a good scrap, and if it isn't going to be that, I have no interest.

"The money is not why I do this.

"I am a very rich man, and my children and those that come after them will be just fine.

"I love the fight game. I learned may things boxing in Crumlin where I grew up, and my deep love is why I do this today.

"I will be in Octagon again soon and fully expect to box again.

"You need to stay tuned – but trust me, the fans will enjoy.

"Giving them what they want and entertaining them is important to me."

It comes after McGregor's coach John Kavanagh claimed he would return to boxing within 18 months.

Mayweather has insisted he will come out of retirement to fight the UFC star again – if the price is right.

And Manny Pacquiao fuelled speculation that he would fight McGregor when he joined the same management company as him.

But first, the Irish ace is plotting his UFC return on July 11 amid claims he could take on Justin Gaethje.

After a lengthy stint out of action following his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov, McGregor made his comeback with a first round win over Donald Cerrone in January.
