Rumors swirled all day Tuesday about the possibility of a mega-fight between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and UFC star Conor McGregor was close to being done. However, near the evening, Mayweather denied anything of the nature.

Mayweather took to Instagram to say that he was “happily retired.”

UFC commissioner Dana White told ESPN via text message that “no deal is even close to being done.”

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith had reported that Mayweather told him a deal was “very, very close to getting done.”
