Conor McGregor Gets Boxing License, Sparks Rumors Of Fight With Floyd Mayweather
A few days after getting stripped of his featherweight title from the UFC, Conor McGregor has gotten a boxing license in the state of California.
“He got a license today and a federal ID,” California State Athletic Commission executive officer Andy Foster confirmed with MMAFighting.com. “He’s a California boxer now.”
Both McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. have been teasing a super-fight via the media as of late, but no concrete plans have been made for them to box at this time, per sources.
“He’s qualified [as a boxer],” Foster said. “I’d love to see him fight in California. It just needs to be the right opponent. Certainly a high-level opponent. We’re happy to license him. We’re happy he’s a California fighter.”
McGregor is currently on break from the UFC to attend to his pregnant girlfriend but he Has made it clear that he wants an ownership stake in the UFC or else. Would Conor actually leave the UFC to box if they don’t give into his demands? Or is he just bluffing?
