Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather continue war of words in Toronto

Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather continue war of words in Toronto

Though both press conferences have been filled with profane insults and trash-talking, McGregor has been criticized for making racially driven comments toward Mayweather and during the tour in general.

But Mayweather insisted none of the heated verbal exchanges in Los Angeles on Tuesday and Toronto on Wednesday had caused him offence.

"They said I'm the motherf-ker who can't read".

"Floyd is 40 years of age, he's been around the fight game, I think the two of them are having a lot of fun with it".

"You owe money", McGregor retorted, referring to Mayweather's tax problems that were reported earlier this month. You little weasel. Look at you you little f-king weasel, I can see it in your eyes, you're a f-king bitch.

McGregor announced he suspects Showtime, which has broadcast Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s last six pay-per-view boxing matches and is handling their coming August 26 novelty match from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, intentionally silenced the Irish UFC champion after he urged Mayweather to "show the taxman" a $100-million check that Mayweather produced on stage Tuesday.

Expect plenty more of the above, as well as on Friday in London when the Irish of the United Kingdom descend upon the British capital to support their man.

"Popularity has nothing to do with what we have in our bank accounts, so if we're going by popularity, he can be more famous", Mayweather said. "If you believe in yourself like you say you believe in yourself, bet your own fight check, you [expletive]". "Send the contract. It's done".

Mayweather also said he "liked" McGregor, while McGregor retorted: "you love me". One shot is all it takes me. But Mayweather responded by saying he was "running into the bank".

"Racism still exists but you know, I try to take something negative and turn it into something positive", Mayweather told TMZ.

McGregor played to the crowd and posed for the cameras.

They meet again on Thursday night in NY but McGregor's coach was honest enough to admit he does not think Mayweather will be spooked by the Irishman's taunts. It concludes Friday at the SSE Arena at Wembley in London.
