Conor McGregor Rips Floyd Mayweather Jr., Calls Jake Paul Incident “Embarrassing”
By FCF Staff
Conor McGregor is lighting up a former foe, Floyd Mayweather Jr., following the latter’s dust-up with Jake Paul on Thursday.
Paul was on hand at a media event for his brother Logan’s June 6, exhibition boxing match with Mayweather. As Jake Paul was speaking to Mayweather, the YouTube star grabbed the decorated boxer’s hat, prompting an altercation.
Since then, McGregor shared out the comments below.
Hey @leonardellerbe, what the f-ck is Floyd at?
The kid curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy.
The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him.
He should thank him.
Pro to pro it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch 10m for this fight and he knows it. It was cancelled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter. He’d fight a half decent pro and command 20m upwards, yet its this sh-t.
Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad.
Fight someone for real, on your record, or f-ck off mate.
