Conor McGregor has had quite a charmed run in combat sports. Not only is he one of the most successful MMA fighters of all time, but he has also stepped inside the boxing ring. While he did lose that, it was for an 8 figure payday against Floyd Mayweather. However, Conor’s manager Audi Attar believes that Floyd would lose to both Conor and Manny Pacquiao if he gave them a rematch.

“I do believe Conor vs Floyd again, he beats him. I don’t think Floyd ever takes it.”

He brought up Floyd only taking exhibition fights now. “Floyd’s taking YouTubers for a paycheck right now. Floyd could take Manny Pacquiao in a rematch, you don’t see him taking that fight. Floyd could take Conor McGregor for a rematch, you don’t see him taking that fight. But he’ll take a Logan Paul. He’ll take the young Japanese fighter he fought previously. I think that’s what he’s going to do, Floyd knows he would lose if he took on either Manny Pacquiao or Conor McGregor.”

Audi Attar is a manager, so he will obviously hype up his fighter. Similarly, Conor will never back down from a fight against Mayweather. However, is it even feasible for him to beat Floyd?

The first fight proved the difference in skill and conditioning between Conor and Floyd. Floyd is one of the greatest defensive fighters of all time. He allowed McGregor to tire himself out and then absolutely picked him apart. He showed true veteran skills in that fight. How can Conor overcome that if he hasn’t even fought since?

Well, father time. The fight is about to be 4 years old in 2021. Mayweather has definitely not stopped aging and has been taking low-risk exhibition fights. Whereas Conor has continued to expand his skill-set, either for his UFC title push or for a marquee bout against Manny Pacquiao. All said and done, there is no telling how a rematch would go. But Conor definitely has a better chance now than he did in 2107.
