Floyd Mayweather: Conor McGregor Has To Carry Himself ‘In A Classy Way’ (VIDEO)
When it comes to being a super famous fighter, Floyd Mayweather knows all about that and he has some advice for Conor McGregor.
During a Showtime Championship Boxing event in Las Vegas on Saturday, the retired boxing legend was speaking with reporter Jim Gray about the possibility of jumping in an Octagon in the future when he inevitably spoke up on the controversy of McGregor going crazy and attacking a bus full of UFC fighters.
Mayweather believes that McGregor needs to learn to control his behavior outside of the Octagon.
“I feel that when you have reached such a high status, you have to carry yourself in a classy way,” Mayweather said. “Meaning, I know that when we fought, we both sold the fight, the world loved what we did. But outside the ring, you have to carry yourself like a gentleman.”
Floyd is all too familiar with controversy outside of the ring, as he spent 90 days in jail for a battery charge involving an ex-girlfriend.
As for Mayweather possibly coming out of retirement one more time for a huge payday, he stated if it happens, it will be in an Octagon.
“Retirement has been great but as you know and everyone knows, I go in retirement and I come back,” Mayweather added. “It is possible I do come back, but if I do come back, it has to be in the Octagon.”
“Only if the money is right,” Mayweather said when asked if he would indeed fight in MMA. “You gotta talk to Showtime, CBS and my team. You talk to my team about that, we all get on the same page, and we’ll see. Of course, the number’s gonna be crazy.”
