Floyd Mayweather dedicates fight against Connor McGregor to the black community

Floyd Mayweather hasn’t forgotten comments that were deemed racist and insensitive by Conor McGregor during their July international media tour and is for that reason dedicating their fight “for all of the blacks around the world.”

We’re roughly two weeks away from the much anticipated boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, which is going down on Saturday, August 26th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. That said, Floyd Mayweather still hasn’t forgotten about the comments McGregor made during the press tour, including repeatedly being called “boy.”

No monkey business

During an interview with Stephen A. Smith, Mayweather was relatively unbothered about McGregor’s comments with the exception being the MMA sensation calling Black people “monkeys.” “I just didn’t like when he called us monkeys,” Mayweather told Smith in a sit-down interview, which aired on ESPN’s First Take. “I think that was totally disrespect. Yeah, he called us monkeys. I didn’t like it.”

When asked whether the McGregor fight can be compared to the 1982 heavyweight championship match between Larry Holmes and Gerry Cooney, which featured a “white versus black” narrative, Floyd said, “it’s no different.”

What do you think, will Mayweather shut McGregor’s mouth once and for all on August 26 in Las Vegas?
