Conor McGregor is looking to add another high-profile boxing match to his resume in the near future.

A couple of years ago, “Notorious” took on Floyd Mayweather and eventually lost in the tenth round via technical knockout (TKO).

Still, McGregor is looking to score a fight, possibly against Manny Pacquiao. But according to UFC president Dana White if Conor wants to box again, it likely won’t happen until 2022.

“The way that this kid is right now mentally, physically, emotionally, I mean this kid is on and ready to fight,” White told ESPN. “I would love to see him focused on what he can do here at the UFC. Whether it’s take another shot at that title against Khabib [Nurmagomedov] or fight for the title against somebody else if Khabib retires and defend that title.”

“A boxing match with any of these guys, that stuff’s always going to be there. You are the absolute best in the world right now in MMA and the timing is right now. Not getting any younger. I’d love to see him go for it here over the next year. If he wants to fight one of these boxing guys, do that next year. That fight’s always going to be there.”
McGregor will face Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC 257 on Jan. 23, 2021, which will likely earn him another shot at the UFC lightweight title, and maybe a rematch against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
So for now “Notorious” will have to put his boxing fight dreams on hold and focus on trying to win the UFC title again.
