"I'm officially coming out of retirement" - again calls out Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather Jr. confirmed he's willing to bring an end to his retirement if a deal can be struck to fight UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
A huge boxing superfight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is sure to make a lot of dollars if not much sense. He goes on to say they shouldn't waste any time and "need to make this shit happen quickly". "Let's make it happen".
McGregor has been challenging Mayweather, who retired in 2015 with a 49-0 record, to a fight for months.
While the lingering question surrounding a Mayweather vs McGregor fight is, 'will it actually happen?' another more prominent question is 'when?' If you're serious, sign the paper work and let's fight in June. "Simple and plain. Let's fight in June", Mayweather said. You're the B-side, I'm the A side. "If we offer you, or your team offers you, a certain amount of money - I don't know what it is - take it". You're the B-Side, I'm the A-side.
"You're blowing smoke up everyone's [butt], if you want to fight, sign the paperwork".
Conor McGregor, the ball is well-and-truly in your court when it comes to your proposed fight against boxing great Floyd Mayweather.
Speculation of a Mayweather-McGregor fight has intensified in recent months, with the U.S. star saying he is willing to meet McGregor in a boxing ring. Mayweather made well over $200 million for his May 5 fight against Manny Pacquiao, and he's made it clear that he won't come out of retirement unless he's going to get a nine-figure payday. "I beat him and I didn't cry or complain".
That's true, of course, just as Mayweather, who has been retired since defeating Andre Berto on September 12, 2015, is using McGregor's name for leverage. McGregor has also said that he wants $100 million. Since then, McGregor has been selling millions of pay-per-views while headlining cards in the UFC and that part of the negotiation seems to remain the biggest obstacle from making a fight with Mayweather come together.
Mayweather claims he didn't even know who McGregor was when the Irishman first called him out previous year.
