Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor 2 Officially Set?
Is Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor 2 officially set?
That is the impression Mayweather gave on Saturday night when he published a fight poster for the event on Instagram.
Mayweather and McGregor previously met for a boxing match in August of 2017. Mayweather ultimately emerged victorious via 10th round TKO, with McGregor putting up a solid showing in what was the first pro boxing match of his career.

The bout reportedly earned more than 4.3 million pay-per-view buys, making both fighters a lot of money in the process.
There has been a lot of talk and hype about a potential rematch, but nothing concrete had been announced.
That all changed on Saturday night, shortly after McGregor earned a 40-second first round victory over Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC 246.
Just spoke to Dana White, we finished our interview than he showed me an Instagram from Floyd Mayweather. Said Floyd has been blowing him up all night … no more details than that.

According to UFC president Dana White, Mayweather spent the entire evening of UFC 246 hitting him up about a potential rematch against McGregor.
Will one actually end up happening? Time will tell.
