Floyd Mayweather response to McGregor rejection: “Easiest 9 figures I ever made”

Well fight fans, it looks like the saga between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor apparently isn’t over, as the beef between the two has been reheated thanks to some harsh verbiage from the Irishman towards boxing’s pound-for-pound greatest.

It all started two days ago, when Mayweather while speaking with TMZ, extended an invite for McGregor to come train at his gym in preparation for his bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“I don’t really have a prediction [for UFC 229] 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,” Mayweather told TMZ of Conor McGregor’s fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov. “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.”

“I know that UFC got a training facility but we’d like for him to work out at the Mayweather Boxing Club.”

In hearing about Mayweather’s offer, Conor responded later on that evening, only it just wasn’t the response Floyd had expected.

“Fuck the Mayweathers, except Senior and Roger,” McGregor said on Twitter on Tuesday night. “There is no peace here kid. Step up or step down.”

Obviously Conor doesn’t want Mayweather’s help.

Earlier today Mayweather went to his Instagram an fired back at McGregor’s hostile decline to come train with him in typical “Money” Mayweather fashion,

“Easiest 9 figures I ever made,” Mayweather said in response to Conor McGregor on Instagram. “All work is what?”

I think it’s safe to say there’s definitely no love lost here with these combat sports greats.
