Much like everyone else around the country, Conor McGregor couldn’t believe his eyes at what he was witnessing from Floyd Mayweather on Thursday.
At a press event in Miami to promote his exhibition boxing match with YouTube star Logan Paul — Mayweather got into a brawl with Logan’s brother, fellow YouTuber Jake Paul, who thought it would be a good idea to take his cap off his head and run.
Mayweather and his crew attacked Jake, which lead to the YouTuber getting a black eye and a broken tooth. Seeing a 44-year-old Mayweather brawling with a 24-year-old YouTuber with just three professional fights was more than enough for Conor McGregor to take to Instagram and call him out.
“Pro to pro it’s embarrassing,” McGregor wrote and continued, “Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad.”
Hey @leonardellerbe, what the fuck is Floyd at?
The kid curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy.
The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him.
He should thank him.
Pro to pro it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch 10m for this fight and he knows it. It was cancelled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter. He’d fight a half decent pro and command 20m upwards, yet its this shit.
Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad.
Fight someone for real, on your record, or fuck off mate.
The former UFC two-division champion lost to Mayweather by 10th-round TKO back in August 2017. Both men went on a week-long “world tour” in the build-up to their fight which had viral moments, but nothing ever got physical.
McGregor is set to fight Dustin Poirier in a trilogy on July 10 at UFC 263 in Las Vegas.
