Floyd Mayweather and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor have had many heated exchanges during their four city press tour to promote their super fight this August.
McGregor got the controversy started first when he demanded that Mayweather “dance for me,” which lead to racism claims about the Irishman.
The Irishman would address those claims during the New York City portion of the tour, but would then suggest that he is half black from the waist down.
It would be the stop in London, England that would see controversy rear its ugly head towards Mayweather, as the legendary boxer used a homophobic slur against McGregor.
“Yeah, we’re going to talk about this p*ssy,” Mayweather said. “You punk, you f****t, you ho.”
Nobody from Mayweather Promotions or even Mayweather himself have spoken about the usage of the homophobic slur.
This stop in London, England was the final stop of the press tour and it is the final time that Mayweather and McGregor are going to be face to face until the weigh-ins.
Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather takes place on Saturday, August 26 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
