UFC President Dana White insists Conor McGregor will not return to boxing after his Floyd Mayweather bout

UFC PRESIDENT Dana White has dismissed suggestions that Conor McGregor will return to boxing.

On Friday, White took to social media to insist his prize fighter wont't box anymore.

Responding to fans' criticism on Twitter, White tweeted: “He’s not Boxing anyone so calm down cry babies.”

Speculation has increased around whether McGregor would return to the ring to box since he was defeated by Floyd Mayweather in a fight that generated more than £450 million.

The fight made 4.3m pay-per-view buys in North America, second only to Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao's 4.6m in 2015.

Showtime added that global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and international distribution, exceeded $600m (£450.42m).

Last week, Pacquiao admitted he'd opened talks with McGregor over a big-money fight in April next year.

Pacquiao said: “If we can negotiate it, I have no problem. It is OK with both of us.

“ Initially, but we have not yet had any follow-up conversations.”

In response to the Pacquiao, White threatened to sue the boxing legend.

The Irishman came under the spotlight recently when he went to a fashion dinner and had his arm around singer Rita Ora before partying in a London nightclub.
