Mayweather is currently scheduled to face Japanese MMA star and YouTuber Mikuru Asakura in an exhibition boxing match for RIZIN Fighting Federation in September.
Mayweather vs. McGregor took place on August 26, 2017, it was a professional boxing match, and the pro boxing debut of Conor McGregor. Mayweather eventually won the fight by TKO in round 10.
The crossover event would turn out to be a massive success and it was also the second highest selling Pay-Per-View in boxing history, selling 4.3 million PPV buys. The number one Pay-Per-View was Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao in 2015 with 4.6 million PPV buys.
They will need to decide if the rematch will be a boxing exhibition or a pro boxing bout, as of yet the only thing we know so far is the two camps are in talks.
