Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather has criticised former opponent Conor McGregor over the Irishman’s alleged attack on a UFC team. The Irishman stormed a UFC press conference in New York on Thursday, was recorded on video throwing guard rails at a bus carrying UFC fighter and smashed a window that left two athletes requiring hospital treatment.

Mayweather, who defeated McGregor in the tenth round of a landmark boxing rules bout in 2017, was asked about the incident. McGregor appeared in court on Friday afternoon on charges of assault, following a violent backstage fracas after a press event at UFC 223.

He is charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief, after the altercation in a parking lot at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn which left two UFC fighters injured.

He told Jim Gray of Showtime that,”I feel that when you have reached such high status you have to carry yourself in a classy way. I know that when we fought we both sold the fight, the world loved what we did, but outside the ring, you have to carry yourself as a gentleman.”

Mayweather also confirmed he has no intentions of returning to a boxing ring, but that if he were to come out of retirement than he could compete in a UFC octagon. “Retirement has been great but as you know and as everybody knows, I go out of retirement… I come back,” he said. “Is it possible I come back? Yes, but if I do come back it has to be in the octagon.

Floyd Mayweather also added: “Showtime, CBS, if we can get together with Dana White and UFC and make a mega fight happen, one fight, it could be against Conor McGregor, we don’t know. But we could do a multi-fight deal, but Showtime and CBS have to be involved.”
