Georges St-Pierre‘s boxing coach, Freddie Roach, says that the semi-retired former UFC welterweight champion is “getting the itch to fight again.”

St-Pierre was training with Roach recently, and the famed boxing coach said they discussed a possible return, which led him to believe that GSP would fight again, at least one more time.

Roach is currently busy training Manny Pacquiao for his monster match-up with Floyd Mayweather, whch should shatter any and all financial measurements for combat sports.

  • Would be interesting if he came back an Rory was champ

      It would. But I don’t think he’ll be back to fight at welterweight.

      If it is just “one more fight” as Roach intimated, my guess is it’ll be Anderson in 2016. Yeah, I know, the scandal, the lackluster performance against Nick (etc. etc.). But still. Check past interviews right before retirement, he was hinting hard in a few interviews about time off, putting on muscle mass, then coming back as a middleweight.

      It’s that, or some redemption against Johnny should he be welterweight champ (and maybe even should he not be).

      Who else would GSP come back to fight? Can’t think of anyone else GSP would be hungry enough to come back and take a crack at. He most certainly wouldn’t come back to challenge Rory for the title. Not a chance at that.

        Have to agree…Who would he fight?
        Unless he’s moving to Middleweight, I don’t know who.

        • JJDNB

          Yeah he has already cleared out his division multiple times it seems.

          He beat Johnny. Not interested in seeing that rematch

          • Collideoverme

            Agreed, and nope. Me either,


    GSP has unfinished business in the UFC and I think if he gets the hunger and desire back he has every chance of becoming the champ again, bu I don’t think he’ll be fighting Rory.

    Roach in the corner of gsp. That would be huge. And it’s cool that he thinks silva is the best boxer in mma.
