McGregor accused of racism again after 'dancing monkeys' remark

Connor McGregor on racist allegations: 'I'm half-black from the belly button down” In Brooklyn, Conor McGregor Wins the Popularity Contest Over Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Conor McGregor bounced back to his epic best in Toronto on Wednesday with a blistering character assassination of his foe Floyd Mayweather. What are you doing with a f**king schoolbag?

There was a genuine disdain built by anyone McGregor lined up against and most who've faced him still hold a grudge to this day.

He used that backpack as ammunition to reference a 2014 jab from rapper 50 Cent, who infamously torched Mayweather for not being able to read after they had a very public falling out. "I do numbers, I make money", he said.

Facing up like snarling jackals in front of over 10,000 people at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the two men went toe-to-toe trading insults.

Hype and hoopla aside, the fight has been met with criticism from many, with quite a few boxers calling it a "farce", "circus", "joke", and so on.

The Irish fighter had to think for a moment as he recalled which movie it was.

"It's hurting the sport of boxing", Alvarez said. I'm getting fight checks and promoter checks.

He said he will take it "one movie at a time" but Holland is confident that Watts will return for the follow-up installment. In related news, "Spider-Man: Homecoming " director Jon Watts has not confirmed whether he will be directing the sequel.

Floyd Mayweather has won fifteen world titles and is undefeated in his proffesional boxing career.

Reigning UFC lightweight champion McGregor promised he'd knock out his opponent inside four rounds - this despite having no professional boxing experience. "Our sport might not ever recover".

"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. Conor McGregor is up and he is sprinting.

And at last night's press conference in Toronto, Canada, Mayweather claimed he could easily take on McGregor in the Octagon.

Floyd also addressed Conor's attack on his reading ability with an extremely on-brand response, saying "I'm the motherf-- that can't read?".

This time with a working microphone in his hand, McGregor responded in kind.

And, mind you, this is just the moolah from the actual fight. Buying the fight on pay-per-view will cost almost $100, and no tickets can be had for fewer than $500. Injuries come and I had to sit out for nearly three years and just watch everybody go out there and do this while I couldn't do it.
