Floyd Mayweather JR. finally took a break from his Instagram beef with 50 Cent, to give some nice words to another former foe in Conor McGregor.
If you remember, Mayweather, and McGregor both traded what at times felt like really personal verbal blows at each other as they traveled the world to promote the predictably disappointing so-called superfight between each other inside of the boxing ring.
McGregor is now preparing for his first fight since the two took everyone’s money for the one-of-a-kind boxing match, and is getting ready to face undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 6 inside of the UFC octagon.
The retired boxer gave a positive account of Mayweather and the fight when asked about it in Atlantic City.
“Conor’s not gonna back down and he’s not a scared fighter at all, win, lose or draw,” he said. “Conor gonna come to fight. I know that UFC got a training facility but we’d like for him to work out at the Mayweather Boxing Club. I don’t really have a prediction because I’ve never seen the guy fight that’s facing Conor McGregor. From what I know he’s a hell of a guy that’s on the ground, hell of a grappler, and he can wrestle. But, the fans want to see you stand up and fight. That’s what the fans like to see. But, Conor McGregor, he’s a tough competitor, like I said before Conor McGregor’s not gonna back down from anyone, he’s not scared, he’s a warrior.”
