“People say that Conor McGregor is racist but I’m not worried about that.”
Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are in Brooklyn, New York today to continue their four-stop international press conference tour ahead of their August 26th fight in Las Vegas.
TMZ recently caught up with Mayweather upon landing in NY from Toronto, to get his thoughts about the second press conference, specifically how McGregor referred to him as “boy” yet again, which had some outraged and calling McGregor a racist.
However, Mayweather doesn’t seem bothered. He told TMZ reporters,
“We all know there’s only 2 types of boys — a white boy and a cowboy — and I’m neither.”
“Racism still exists but you know, I try to take something negative and turn it into something positive,” Mayweather told TMZ.
“A lot of people say that Conor McGregor is racist but I’m not worried about that.”
When asked if he’s upset with McGregor’s comments, Floyd explained,
“It is what it is. He’s entitled to feel how he wants to feel.”
“I just want to stay in my zone and stay focused.”
The third press conference will go live today from the Barclay’s center in Brooklyn at approximately 5pm
