Now it’s getting personal…
Starting way back in 2015, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather’s feud continues to grow. Although in the past it’s been downplayed, a potential boxing match between the two seems to be imminent.
Recently the NSAC confirmed they were in talks for a Mayweather vs. McGregor boxing match. Despite the fact Dana White has warned him twice, ‘The Notorious’ will attempt to break his contract agreement.
McGregor’s Verbal Assault on Mayweather
Speaking during an interview with magazine ‘GQ’ this week, McGregor continued his onslaught on Mayweather:
“We’re talking about boxing. That’s it. But again, age waits for no man,” McGregor said about Mayweather when speaking to GQ. “He’s 40 years of age. He’s a little, he’s got a little head on him. Honestly, my fist is bigger than his head.
“I sleep people. I put people unconscious. I’m stating facts. If I hit that man, his head is gonna go into the bleachers. You understand that? If I crack that little head of his, it’s gonna go clean off his shoulders and up into the bleachers.”
McGregor Willing To Box One Of Floyd’s Opponents
“I mean, that’s the one that everyone wants, that’s the one that makes the most sense. But I’ve no problem going and slapping the head off one of his opponents that he couldn’t finish,” McGregor said. “All he does is decisions. He can never stop them.
“So all I have to do is pick some schmuck out that he only could decision, bounce the left hand off his dome, sleep him, and then there you go: It’s already done.”
In terms of money, McGregor is set for life. For that reason alone, this saga with Floyd could go on forever, much like Mayweather and Pacquiao did. All the while, McGregor’s lightweight title sits in his grasp, as the division clamours for the interim belt.
