Conor McGregor has given his take on the incident between Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather.
During the first media event hyping up the exhibition between Mayweather and Logan Paul, Jake confronted “Money.” During the back-and-forth exchange, Jake yanked Mayweather’s hat from his head. This lead to a fracas between Mayweather’s team and the Paul brothers.
McGregor, who suffered a TKO loss to Mayweather back in 2017, took to his Instagram account to respond to the situation.

“Hey Leonard Ellerbe, what the [expletive] is Floyd at? The kid curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy. The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him. He should thank him. It’s embarrassing!
“Pro to pro it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch $10m for this fight and he knows it. It was cancelled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter. He’d fight a half-decent pro and command $20m upwards, yet it’s this [expletive]. Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or [expletive] off mate. Slap head!”
Mayweather is scheduled to meet Logan Paul on June 6. It appears Jake has already been angling for a future showdown with “Money.” Jake is 3-0 as a pro boxer, while Logan is 0-1. Mayweather ended his pro career with a record of 50-0, won world titles in multiple divisions, and is a Hall of Fame elect.
