Mayweather unapologetic about McGregor comments

The money king of boxing Floyd Mayweather and the UFC’s biggest name Conor McGregor have been going at it verbally for the last few months.

The most recent bout of verbal sparring saw Mayweather claim the former Crumlin amateurs success is proof racism still exists.

The Dubliner responded via social media and the press conference to officially announce UFC 197 last week.

“I think Floyd needs to learn before he opens his mouth. You don’t put a man like me in a situation like that,” McGregor said. “You don’t put me in a name that’s got to do with prejudice. You don’t know nothing about me.”

Speaking to Fighthype this week the retired boxer, who is expected to return to push is record to 50-0 this Summer, said he never meant to offend McGregor, but added he wasn’t concerned if offence was taken or not.

“All I said is this: in this world, racism still exists. But I’m not racist,” Mayweather said. “And if (McGregor) got offended, that’s life. Sometimes, people will get offended by certain things people say.”
