Conor McGregor thinks Jake Paul made a fool out of Floyd Mayweather by baiting ‘TBE’ into a brawl at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium earlier today.
Paul got into Mayweather’s face and swiped the undefeated boxer’s baseball cap during a press conference for the upcoming Logan Paul/Floyd Mayweather exhibition bout on June 6.
Mayweather reportedly landed several blows on Paul before the YouTuber-turned-pro-boxer was escorted to safety by security.
McGregor reacted by labelling Mayweather’s conduct ‘embarrassing’ and claims the former multiple-time world champ got punked by Paul.
“Hey @leonardellerbe, what the fuck is Floyd at? The kid curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy. The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him. He should thank him. It’s embarrassing! Pro to pro it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch 10m for this fight and he knows it. It was cancelled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter. He’d fight a half decent pro and command 20m upwards, yet its this shit. Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or fuck off mate. Slap head!”
McGregor lost to Mayweather via 10th-round TKO in their super-welterweight boxing match back in 2017 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Mayweather has since fought in an exhibition boxing match against Tenshin Nasukawa, finishing the MMA fighter via first-round TKO.
Mayweather vs. Paul is scheduled to take place on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
