How little does Floyd Mayweather’s dad think of Conor McGregor’s boxing skills? Well according to Floyd Sr., not only would the UFC champ surely lose to his son on their proposed boxing match, he thinks he himself can beat him.
“He don’t want that fight. Floyd’s gonna turn him upside down,” Mayweather Sr. told Fight Hype (HT: MMA Fighting). “That be like you and Floyd in the ring! [Laughs]. He looks bad in the ring. That’s a done deal right there. They’ve already showed the best that he’s got.
“He ain’t nothing but talk! I told them people on the TV already, forget about Floyd. Let’s throw Floyd to the side. Here I am, I’m a 64-year-old man and I’ll beat your ass. I’ll beat the s—t out of McGregor! Anytime he wants it, let’s go.”
“I’m telling you right now, he can do all the stuff he want to do but this guy don’t know nothing about how to get your body right and the amount of time and everything you’ve got to do, he don’t know nothing about that.”
Negotiations are currently ongoing for the boxing match. Dana White has stated that he will do everything in his power to make it happen, but if Showtime’s side is to be believe, they’re currently at a standstill.
