Conor McGregor is ready to lace-up his boxing gloves again, accepting a challenge from retired fighter Oscar De La Hoya. 

The Irishman created one of the biggest sporting events of the last decade when he stepped out of the octagon to box former world champion Floyd Mayweather at Madison Square Garden in 2017. 

After the world debated whether he could cause a monumental upset, McGregor was dropped in the tenth round, with both fighters earning their biggest ever pay-day.
