Conor McGregor Throws Shade At FLoyd Mayweather At A Press Tour
|Conor McGregor Throws Shade At Floyd Mayweather At A Press Tour|
The fight will take place Aug. 26 in Las Vegas. The fight will be contested at 154 pounds.
Mayweather, 40, retired from boxing after his last fight in September 2015. McGregor, 28, is 21–3 in UFC fights, with his most recent fight coming in November against Eddie Alvarez. McGregor boxed as a youth and relies significantly on his striking in MMA fights. He has won eight of his last 11 UFC fights by punch.
“He is fucked,” McGregor said. “There’s no other way about it. His little legs, his little core, his little head—I’m gonna knock him out inside four rounds, mark my words.”
The pro-McGregor crowd ate it up.
McGregor even jumped on Mayweather’s IRS troubles to clown his casual outfit.

Mayweather resorted to what never works when trading barbs: talking about money.
“He look good for a seven-figure fighter; he look good for a seven-figure fighter,” Mayweather said. “I look good for a nine-figure fighter.”
At one point, Mayweather called up a backpack holder so that he could fish out $100 million to show McGregor, who made a paltry $3 million for his largest fight against Nick Diaz, to which McGregor replied: “That’s for the IRS.”
We’ll have to wait and see how the rest of this plays out, but the first round of jabs goes to White Mayweather.
