Floyd Mayweather Responds To Conor McGregor’s Sharp Tongue By Talking About Floyd Mayweather
Ah, meaningless athlete beefs, aren’t they such a guilty pleasure? Like one rich, successful guy says something kind of rude about another rich successful guy until it runs its course and then one probably becomes the godfather of his former enemy’s first born. Celebrity life is a fucking circus and and we’re the collective conductor. I don’t know whether to give us a pat on the back or a sucker punch to the baby maker.
One of the more riveting beefs going right now is the squabble between UFC Champion Conor McGregor and five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather.
You may remember about a month back when Floyd singled out McGregor saying that his success and behavior outside of the cage were a product of racism.
McGregor then shot back with a beautifully-written response that I think deserves repeating.
Floyd Mayweather, don’t ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood.’
In my family’s long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name ‘McGregor’ was punishable by death.Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again.
If you want we can organise a fight no problem.I will give you a fair 80/20 split purse in my favour seen as your last fight bombed at every area of revenue.
At 27 years of age I now hold the key to this game.The game answers to me now.
And not one grammatical error. IN PERFECT CURSIVE.
Floyd’s response (in the video below) came in response to the response and was surprisingly un-Floyd-like. Like he was calm and thoughtful and only talked about himself for half of it.
But for real, does these dudes look like they really give a shit?
What the fuck is Floyd doing with a camel? Who authorized this?
