Floyd Mayweather could face Conor McGregor in blockbuster rematch after hint at working on avoiding his killer left hand
FLOYD MAYWEATHER could face Conor McGregor in a blockbuster rematch after sparring against a left-hander in training.
That’s according to sparring partner Denis Douglin, who believes boxing legend Mayweather is likely to fight either McGregor or fellow left-hander Khabib Nurmagomedov in the near future.
Mayweather has been doing 2am sparring sessions as he continues to tease a sensational return to boxing.
His last pro fight came against retired UFC man McGregor with a tenth round stoppage three years ago.
Mayweather, 43, boasts a perfect 50-0 record over his 21-year-old career.
But it’s reckoned the American is planning on making a comeback.
And he has been training with 32-year-old super middleweight Douglin.
The pair have been enjoying late night sparring sessions together.
And Douglin believes he was picked by Mayweather as he is left-handed – just like McGregor.
It also stokes rumours that fellow UFC ace Khabib could be lined up to fight Mayweather as he too is a lefty.
Douglin told Vegas Insider: “[A fight against McGregor or Khabib?]
“I do think this could happen, I think he’s going to fight UFC guys.
“It’s actually quite interesting because I’m left-handed and McGregor and Khabib are both left-handed.
“So him choosing to spar me, that might be the reason why.
“That’s something someone said to me the other day and I was like, ‘you know what, that makes sense’, so it’s very possible.
“The McGregor fight generated so much money, why not do something like that again or fight another UFC fighter if he’s making millions of dollars?”
