Is Floyd Mayweather serious?

So it’s been several months since the spectacle that was Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor inside a boxing ring. Time has crept along and the fight has simply become a thing of the past. But it appears that the continuing feud between the boxing star and MMA’s most polarizing figure is marching on.

Recently Floyd Mayweather released videos of himself entering a mixed martial arts cage, leading the masses to believe that the boxer was flirting with the idea of competing in MMA. The MMA and boxing community took all this for show, simply yanking at our chains to get us excited for the match that would never truly happen.

Then why is Floyd Mayweather still throwing jabs at Conor McGregor online?

If the fight wasn’t truly a real possibility for Mayweather then it’d be unlikely that he’d consume a great deal of his time trashing McGregor in multiple social media posts. The more posts Floyd Mayweather makes about knocking out Conor McGregor inside the octagon the more you have to question the sincerity of these boasts. Is Floyd Mayweather truly considering a match with McGregor under mixed martial arts rules?

For now, all of this is speculation. But if it is true and Floyd Mayweather does decide to fight in an MMA match, chances are Conor McGregor wipes the floor with him.
