Remember we told you recently about how retired boxing champion Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather claimed that racism was alive and well in the fight game because of how people treated Conor McGregor? Well, as we thought he might, the Irishman has hit back with an EPIC comeback posted on social media.
Mayweather told FightHype: “I don’t really know the McGregor guy, never seen him fight. They say he talks a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I’m cocky and arrogant. So biased! Like I said before, all I’m saying is this: I ain’t racist at all, but I’m telling you racism still exists.”
Here’s what McGregor said by way of reply on Facebook:
Dear Mr. Mayweather,
I read the other day that you think racism still exists because I talk sh*t and am loved but when you did it you were hated… would you like a pad or a tampon? The difference between you and me buddy is that I’m IRISH and you are not. When I fight men,women,children,cats and dogs stop for my fights. Forget using skin color as an excuse!!
Also the reason why I am loved is because I have never stepped down to a fight… I am not a man who picks and chooses his fights out of fear. You ruined your legacy to a certain degree because you didn’t have the balls to fight Manny for years… Excuse after excuse is what the fans kept hearing from you and now your angry your not loved? Who was the man you fought after Manny?? I don’t think a lot of people out there know because it was one of the worst pay per view ratings of all time.
Just remember this… You can have all the money and power in the world and drive all the fastest cars but like I said before precision beats power and timing beats speed. Enjoy yourself buddy yeah… Ya little b**ch.
The Man You Want To Be,
