Floyd Mayweather on Conor McGregor: Racism Still Exists, But I’m No ‘Boy’ (VIDEO)
During the first leg of the world tour to promote the mega fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, there was a moment at Staples Center when McGregor yelled out, ‘Dance for me, boy’. Social media immediately went into an uproar about it.
So how does Floyd Mayweather feel about being called a boy, not once, but twice? No offense taken, as he explained when approached by TMZ Sports.
In fact, Floyd actually tries to turn it into a joke — “We all know there’s only 2 types of boys — a white boy and a cowboy — and I’m neither.”
“Racism still exists but you know, I try to take something negative and turn it into something positive,” Mayweather told us.
“A lot of people say that Conor McGregor is racist but I’m not worried about that.”
When asked specifically if he’s upset with Conor over the comments, Floyd said he’s not — explaining, “It is what it is. He’s entitled to feel how he wants to feel.”
“I just want to stay in my zone and stay focused.”
