McGregor also stated that he had a lot of time to reflect on his boxing skills and analyze his previous fight to see what went wrong. “For sure, I have been thinking about it for a long time and I have had a long time to think about it and analyze it.” 

His comments come as Mayweather prepares to fight the former New York crime family boss’ grandson, John Gotti III, in June, who even sent a warning to the undefeated boxer. He threatened Mayweather saying, “You signed to fight me; there’s no quarter. It’s kill or be killed.” While this boxing match has the potential to be huge, ‘Mystic Mac’ intends to make a return. Both Floyd and Conor have shown interest in running it again against each other.
