Floyd Mayweather Sr. Says Conor McGregor Calling His Son ‘Boy’ Wasn’t Racist At All (VIDEO)
On Tuesday, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor were promoting their upcoming fight at a press conference at Staples Center, when Floyd began shadow boxing and showing what he was going to do to McGregor in August.
Conor McGregor took that opportunity to yell out, ‘Dance for me, boy.’ That had social media buzzing for hours as referring to a black man as “boy” in America has an extremely negative history that goes all the way back to slavery.

On Wednesday, TMZ Sports caught up with Floyd Sr. and he cleared that air on the situation.
Floyd Mayweather Sr. says he doesn’t see anything racist about Conor McGregor telling his son to “dance for me, boy” during the news conference … despite outrage on social media.
“Racist? I don’t know what that got to do with race,” Floyd Sr. told TMZ Sports moments after the news conference at Staples Center.
“This is a boxing match. I don’t know what that got to do with no racists.”
