Floyd Mayweather is Unbothered About Connor McGregor Calling Him Boy

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor Mc Gregor faceoff during the Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Conor Mc Gregor World Press Tour at Budweiser Stage

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor Mc Gregor faceoff during the Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Conor Mc Gregor World Press Tour at Budweiser Stage

The greatest cash-generating, made-for-TV show in the world. The match will take place on August 26 in Las Vegas and the press tour for the bout started on Wednesday.

The Six God welcomed the two fighters as their promotional tour stopped off in Toronto. It's actually "the fight before the fight", with the two stars trading blows, in the form of profanities, abuses, taunts and so on.

Having retired twice before, Mayweather insists that this fight against McGregor will be the last of his career.

McGregor, who celebrates his 29th birthday tomorrow, repeated his comment during yesterday's Toronto press conference.

Many deemed McGregor's "dancing monkeys" comment as a direct reference to the fighters sparring in Apollo Creed's "Tough Gym" in Los Angeles, who were all black.

"How's this suit look?" he laughed.

As previously reported, the Irish MMA champ barked, "Dance for me, boy!" as Mayweather was shadow boxing in front of him.

McGregor once again went after Mayweather for his choice in attire where he came clad in a t-shirt and jeans with a baseball hat, all adorned in the maple leaf from the Canadian flag.

In America, calling an African American man a "boy" has significant racial connotations.

Conor McGregor said he was going to knock out Mayweather and tarnish his unbeaten record. You're 40 years of age, dress your f-king age.

King Felipe VI: Spain and United Kingdom 'profoundly intertwined'
King Felipe, accompanied by Prince Philip , inspected the Guard of Honor (in this case, the 1st Battalion Irish Guards). With a population of around 30,000, Gibraltar was ceded to Britain by Spain under the treaty of Utrecht in 1713.

"The reality is you see what some athletes - whether combat sports or otherwise - the need to invent enemies and invent opponents to motivate. You can't even read", he said, prompting the crowd to erupt in laughter.

What's trash talk against Mayweather without mentioning his ineptitude to read?

"21 is the number", said Mayweather.

After they face off in NY the pair will travel to London for the final stop on their world press tour on Friday.

Few people give the Irish cage fighter much of a chance in the ring against Mayweather, but he is dominating the build up.

"It's hurting the sport of boxing", Alvarez said.

"I'm 28 years old and I'm getting fight cheques and promoter cheques".

In an open letter on Facebook, De La Hoya wrote: "My interest is in the health of boxing as a whole".

"It's exceeded my expectations as far as how fast everything has been moving and the position that I've been put in on the fast track", she continues.
