VIDEO | Floyd Mayweather fires back, promises to finish “Mr. Tapout” Conor McGregor
UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor was the first fighter to take the microphone at today’s Mayweather vs. McGregor press conference in Los Angeles, California.
The brash Irish superstar quickly began taking shots at “Money” and the sport of boxing stating the following.
“With this limited rule set, it’s not a real fight!” Conor stated. “It’s a quarter of a fight! If this were a real fight it wouldn’t last one round!”
“The Notorious” continued by issuing a bold prediction for his August 26 fight with Mayweather.
“He will be KO’d inside four rounds!”
Shortly after Conor’s remarks, the undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather (49-0) got his turn on the microphone and it didn’t take long for “Money” to begin verbally assaulting McGregor.
“I don’t care if it is in a ring or an octagon. If you want 8oz gloves let’s do that. If you want 4oz gloves let’s do that!”
Mayweather then asked Conor how he would like to “go out” on August 26.
“You’re going out on your back or your face, which way do you want to go?”
When Conor McGregor tried to interrupt Floyd and suggest that “Money” was having trouble with the IRS, Mayweather quickly responded.
“I am the IRS and I’m going to tax that ass!”
Check out some of the highlights of Floyd’s trash talk below.
