IF you thought we had seen the end of Conor McGregor in a boxing ring, think again.

Though now back in MMA, and currently gearing up for a fight against Donald Cerrone on January 19, McGregor insists his 0-1 boxing career is not over just yet and believes fights against Floyd Mayweather, the man responsible for his sole pro loss, and Manny Pacquiao could still come to fruition.  

“I’d like to rematch Floyd,” McGregor told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani. “I think we should rematch Floyd. I mean, he’s flirting with it. He can go and pick someone else, (but) it’s not going to be the same. It was a great, great experience and I look forward to doing it again. It’s going to happen again.
