Last week, the younger Mayweather stated that he does not want to fight with McGregor because he’s an “elephant” and compared the popular Irish fighter to an “ant”.
Recently, McGregor is coming off a historic win over Eddie Alvarez in UFC 205 when he became the first fighter in UFC history to become a two-time division champion.
“I think it’s time for Conor McGregor to go out there and do what he do. But never compare Conor McGregor to me. It’s a total disrespect. Once again, I’m an elephant. An elephant don’t beef with ants. Elephant is so large he don’t even see ants,” Mayweather stated via an TMZ video.
