Conor McGregor takes a verbal shot at his upcoming opponent that is now virtually expected to be announced in the very near future.
Some of the early verbal sparring looks to have already begun on Irishman Conor McGregor’s side – ahead of what now looks to be an almost done deal to fight in a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

Those making an argument for McGregor to have any sort of a chance against Mayweather in a boxing match (as crazy as that might sound) have been vocal about the age factor in the fight, and the fact Mayweather has not competed actively since 2015 now.
McGregor himself has been vocal on this too and has taken a fresh shot at Mayweather in this regard:
Man, much respect to Floyd Senior still getting a few rounds in at the gym. I hope I can still train at that age.

Perhaps a sign of the slang match-type warfare in the build-up to come between the two.
