Conor McGregor was on the attack verbally at a speaking event this past weekend, as rumors continue to swirl about a possible appearance in the boxing ring following news recently he received his professional boxing license.
McGregor officially obtained his professional boxing license this week in the State of California in the US, but many believe that talks of a potential showdown with Floyd Mayweather are untrue and are simply to drum up some publicity.
Speaking about comments made by Floyd Mayweather’s manager Leonard Ellerbe, McGregor said this past weekend on him and on the whole situation in general:
“Originally what happened was Floyd called me out. That’s originally what happened. I don’t care about Floyd. I don’t give a f*** about Floyd. I don’t fear no man under no rule set. I’m sitting there minding my own business, dominating true fighting and Floyd calling me out saying we should fight or something like that.”
“F*** Floyd’s manager. F*** Floyd’s manager. Tell him to come say it to me face. I’ve got the boxing license now Floyd’s in the Bahamas. He was there just a minute ago and now I get the boxing license and he’s gone. Look, Floyd’s a phenomenal boxer, it’s a different craft for me to go in and do this. But with correct preparation, if I took out Jiu-Jitsu training, my wrestling training, my kick boxing training, if I took out all those different disciplines and focused with the work ethic I have solely on the sport of boxing, there is no telling what I can do. I wouldn’t just turn up. I’d go in there to knock him out. He can be hit. He’s been hit before. Age waits for no man also so I know they know that.”
