Conor Mcgregor has called for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather in a message Muke Tyson.

McGregor suffered a defeat at the hands of Mayweather in 2017 in what was his debut boxing match as a professional.

McGregor is quite adamant about exacting revenge on the American who insists that he has retired from the profession.

The Irishman went on to thank Mike Tyson for hailing his efforts and also promised him to beat Floyd Mayweather should the opportunity present itself.

“Thank you Mike, and just know that for the inevitable rematch, with the knowledge I now hold of Floyd’s style, plus under the tutelage of my old school boxing coach, I will crack the puzzle, and I will beat Floyd.

“I promise my life on it; it is great to see you back Iron Mike.”

Mike Tyson previously praised McGregor for lasting ten rounds against Mayweather.

“He’s never really had a boxing match in his life, right? He went ten rounds with the greatest boxer in the land, in 100 years of boxing,” said Tyson.

“You’re not listening to me! You don’t understand what I’m saying. He went ten rounds, scored punches on the greatest fighter in the last 20, 100 years.

“Did he do something? Did he accomplish something? People look at it and say the black guy beat the white guy, look at what he had to fight against and look what he did when he fought against it?

“Imagine a guy who’s never had a boxing match and he’s fighting me? He goes ten rounds and we’re fighting? ‘We’re fighting and I’m doing my thing. We go ten rounds, that’s a bad motherf******. ‘Ten rounds with the best champ? That’s the winner there.

“It should have been a one-round fight before it was easy [for Mayweather]. He was fighting someone who was throwing back. “That’s the only thing, when the guy is throwing back, you’re got to have the answers. ‘When he was throwing punches, he should have panicked. He was in there with the greatest fighter in the business, he should have panicked. He kept his cool.”
