Floyd Mayweather says Conor McGregor called him a monkey

Source: MSN

Floyd Mayweather Jr crossed the line during a joint media event with Conor McGregor on Thursday when he hurled a gay slur at the Irishman, but Mayweather says he was acting out in anger after McGregor used a racist term.

Mayweather and McGregor visited four cities in three different countries over a four-day span to hype their upcoming Aug. 26 fight, and they created plenty of controversy along the way. Floyd has been under fire for using a homophobic slang in London, but a representative for the undefeated boxer told TMZ Mayweather did not mean to disrespect the LGBTQ community.

“The reason Floyd called Conor the F word is because Conor called Floyd a monkey,” the rep said. “Floyd has nothing against gays or lesbians at all … Floyd has them on his staff. Floyd has nothing but the utmost respect for gays and lesbians.”

The “monkey” remark supposedly happened when McGregor was not holding a microphone. It’s unclear if Mayweather is referring to when McGregor called one of Floyd’s bodyguards a “juicehead monkey.”

In the era of Trump, it pays to go full racist and homophobic leading up to the bout between McGregor and Mayweather.

3. Bullfighting, maybe?

Though, that has the added aspect of being cruel too. But, yeah. I agree with you.

16. Only the uneducated say MMA is "dumb"

There is a reason the best combat sport men and women -- including many world and Olympic champs -- do it.

The Conor-Floyd thing is not MMA. It is a money maker for Floyd and the UFC/Dana White. Withe the rest for Conor.

17. I guess i am among the uneducated.

I tend to think of the uneducated as people who can't tell the difference between Mahler and, oh, Stravinsky..especially his "neo-classic" period.

7. I'm rooting for a thirty-second fight, as they're both awful people.

McGregor and Mayweather exchange a few punches. McGregor kicks Mayweather and then Mayweather bites off McGregor's ear ala Tyson Vs Holyfield. The ref stops the fight and their fans go away pissed at both of them.

14. I'm hoping for the Rocky-style double knockout

They punch each other at the same time and both go out. Within 30 seconds.

8. They are selling the fight.

Many things will be said. They are definitely going with the Great White Hope angle.

12. They were riding on the same private jet together

This is a fake WWE style beef to get people to shell out money to watch a 40-year-old retired boxer fight an amateur.

I saw Mayweather insulting McGregor yesterday and it was the fakest shit I've ever heard.
