Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are reportedly in talks over a boxing rematch, five years after their blockbuster bout in Las Vegas.

In the showdown between the pair at the T-Mobile Arena back in 2017, McGregor was stopped by Mayweather in the 10th round in what was the UFC star’s professional boxing debut. Mayweather extended his professional record to 50-0 and then decided to hang up his gloves.

FightHype reported that both parties are in talks regarding a rematch which would be worth $100 million to Mayweather. 'Notorious' then seemingly confirmed the rumour by posting a picture from the original fight on his Instagram account with the caption ‘I accept.’

The Irishman hasn’t fought in almost a year after suffering a leg break in his defeat to Dustin Poirier. For that reason, a Mayweather bout may be some way off. McGregor will need to get back up to speed to take on Mayweather again, with 'Money' having stayed sharp in multiple exhibitions since retiring in 2017.

It remains to be seen as to whether a potential rematch would be an exhibition or a professional bout like their first meeting, but after the last fight earned the pair a combined $280 million, it is not surprising to see them open to the idea of stepping into the ring again.

The former pound-for-pound star recently revealed he was open to a second meeting with McGregor, telling Showtime Sports: "Absolutely. He easy. The beef is all these guys look up to me, steal my blueprint and then get to hating on me."
