Conor Mcgregor rips Floyd Mayweather
‘The Notorious Conor Mcgregor went to social media and took shots on his former boxing opponent in Floyd Mayweather for accepting a fight with Logan Paul just for the sake of money.
“Hey @leonardellerbe, what the fuck 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. It’s embarrassing! 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 shit. Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or fuck off mate. Slap head!” – McGregor wrote on Instagram.
