Conor McGregor taunts Floyd Mayweather; congratulates Andy Ruiz Jr on Anthony Joshua upset

Former UFC dual-division champion Conor McGregor is perhaps most famous for simply willing things into existence. That was evidenced by his blockbuster boxing debut against the undefeated former champion Floyd Mayweather in 2017. Now eight months without a mixed martial arts bout, McGregor threw out another boxing challenge on Saturday night, trying to tempt Mayweather into a rematch.

McGregor was in attendance as Andy Ruiz Jr. (aka the Mexican Rocky) upset Anthony Joshua in shocking route. McGregor went on a Twitter tirade, not only congratulating Ruiz on the victory and giving props to Nate Diaz in the process, but also attempted to taunt Mayweather into a rematch.

“Boxing is great, I am going to relish another go! I challenge Juan Manuel Mayweather to a rematch,” McGregor tweeted. Mayweather has yet to respond to McGregor’s taunt.

McGregor was in attendance largely to support undefeated Irish boxer Katie Taylor, who emerged victorious in a tough battle with Belgian boxer Delfine Persoon.
