Floyd Mayweather Says He’s Getting to Conor McGregor
By FCF Staff
Following the fourth and final stop of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor world media tour, the undefeated boxer believes he’s getting in the head of the UFC’s lightweight champ.
The stars hit Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and then London this week, and at each press conference, they traded numerous insults and warnings. After yesterday’s event in London, however, Mayweather had this to say about their back-and-forth (quote via MMA Fighting):
“When McGregor goes up there to speak and talk, I sit back and let him speak his peace and let him say what he has to say and what I do, I just sit quiet,” said Mayweather, who has been criticized since Friday, for calling McGregor a homophobic slur at the presser. “When it’s my turn to go up, I give a speaking, he’s interrupting me. So it’s obvious I’m getting under his skin.”
Mayweather and McGregor will box on August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
