Mayweather Not Offended by McGregor's 'Boy' Comment But "Racism Still Exists"

Mayweather Not Offended by McGregor's 'Boy' Comment But

When asked if anything got to him, the 40-year-old added: 'A lot of people say that Conor McGregor is racist but I'm not anxious about that. "You can't even read!".

The Mayweather vs. McGregor World Tour continues Thursday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and concludes on Friday at Wembley Arena in London. I'm getting fight checks and promoter checks.

Finally after all that, McGregor and Mayweather came together for another face off on the world tour as the cameras snapped photos to capture the moment ahead of the historic fight on August 26 in Las Vegas.

And it won't be just the two fighters involved who are making "Fook you" money, as made obvious by the chairs filled with men in suits, and one in a revolving collection of tee shirts, who sit and smile throughout each press stop.

Mayweather, who is coming out of retirement to fight McGregor, had earlier said that he can not pay off his tax liability from 2015 until he fights the MMA star.

McGregor wore a white Gucci mink coat and raised a steel chair high over his head during a press conference at Madison Square Garden in November to promote his last UFC fight.




Mayweather (left) and McGregor have a go at each other, with UFC president Dana White (centre) forced to separate them. Mayweather earned well more than $200 million for beating Pacquiao, giving him the biggest payday of his career. And some fans accused McGregor of being racially insensitive when he yelled, "Dance for me, boy!".

If you've ever watched "Rocky III" then you know there are no dancing monkeys. "If you believe in yourself, like you say you believe in yourself, bet your whole fight check you b*tch", Mayweather screamed.

It seems as though everyone but McGregor gets the racial undertones of not only calling a black man boy, but also telling one to dance, as if they're some type of court jester.

This time with a working microphone in his hand, McGregor responded in kind. "Send the contract. It's done".

Mayweather fired right back and grabbed an Irish Tricolour from the crowd. I played it calm, cool, didn't say nothing, let him do his talking.

"The biggest fight in the history of fighting, and of course, they had to come to the greatest city in the world to do a press conference".
