Floyd Mayweather has added more fuel to the fire that a potential super fight with Conor McGregor will actually happen.

The fight, which many fans of both sports believe simply could not happen, was first rumoured a fortnight ago and the story simply won't go away.

Now one of the men involved, unbeaten boxing great Floyd Mayweather, has spoken about the potential clash with the UFC star, and he was very positive about the prospect of the fight taking place.

“It's really not a rumour. The fight may happen. We really don't know as of right now, but do I think the fight will happen? Absolutely," said Mayweather, who is widely regarded as the best fighter in the world and a five division world champion.

"It has to be a boxing match because most fights that Conor McGregor won inside the Octagon, he was a stand-up guy.

“I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be a tough fight for me… we don’t know really know as of right now, but there’s been a lot of talk, and hopefully we can make the fight happen," added Mayweather, speaking on Showtime last night.
