Now that Floyd Mayweather Jr. has come out of retirement, even if it's for a mismatch against a mixed martial artist, the hope among some within the boxing industry is that Mayweather will remain active after August 26. If, at 40, he fought McGregor at all, it would be in some armory in front of six hundred people.

Plans are now underway for a press conference where Mayweather and McGregor will meet face-to-face for the first time since the fight was made official a week ago. Usually, Mayweather doesn't take a beating in the ring, and he's never been knocked out.

If you take a look at the history of the middleweight division‎ with Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Bernard Hopkins, and now you have Canelo Alvarez versus Gennady Golovkin, they are bringing boxing back to the glory days. "But to make people watch a 12 round snoozer is not good for boxing". It's no different. I think there is an interest level there. Laugh all you want, but if Floyd Mayweather were fighting IBF heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua on August 26th, I'd pick Mayweather to win, and I'd go one further and even bet on him.
