TMZ recently caught up with Floyd Mayweather to discuss Conor McGregor’s “boy” comment. Here’s what he had to say.
As you know, the Mayweather-McGregor fight is said to be one of the biggest fights of this century.
However, there’s a lot of tension in the atmosphere.
People think racism appears to be part of the situation.
As reports Bleacher Report, recently during a meet, Conor McGregor told Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to “dance.” But, it’s the way he said it.

“Dance for me, boy,” said McGregor.
Nevertheless, Mayweather doesn’t seem to be fazed by McGregor’s comment. According to TMZ, he mentions as follows.
“Racism still exists but you know, I try to take something negative and turn it into something positive. A lot of people say that Conor McGregor is racist, but I’m not worried about that.”
We all know that Mayweather has the ability to keep a level head, especially when preparing for one of his bouts. That seems to be what’s happening in this situation as well.
“It is what it is. He’s entitled to feel how he wants to feel. I just want to stay in my zone and stay focused.”
“We all know there’s only two types of boys — a white boy and a cowboy — and I’m neither,” says Mayweather. After this, he laughed it off and said he was only kidding.
Nonetheless, Mayweather’s father doesn’t feel like McGregor was being racist while making the comment. He says it’s a boxing match, and he doesn’t understand what any of this has to do with race or being racist, according to Daily Mail.
