In a recent video from Fight Hype, Mayweather says that Conor McGregor is just using his name to gain more popularity and has absolutely no intention of fighting him, even after getting his boxing license.

“Yeah, I don’t fight in California,” Mayweather stated. “What did he get a license in California for?

“I’m gonna tell you like this. He’s blowing smoke up everybody’s ass. He don’t really wanna fight because I went to his boss and I’m gonna tell everybody and I’m gonna came and break it to you. He don’t really want to fight, he’s just wanted to keep himself good, keep his name alive, you know what I’m saying? To stay relevant. He don’t really wanna fight. He’s doing that to build his followers. He’s smart,” admitted the boxer who has done a tremendous job marketing himself.
