The Floyd "Money" Mayweather and Conor McGregor press tour stopped in London, England today (July 14) and the environment at each presser is becoming more and more, pro-wrestling like. At today's conference, McGregor and Mayweather each traded insults and hyped fan responses, whether negative or positive.
The past two pressers found McGregor facing harsh criticism on claims of racism. But many are saying that Mayweather crossed the line today, hurling homophobic slurs towards McGregor.
Floyd was approached by TMZ following the press conference to get comments about the slur. Through a rep of his, Floyd issued this statement:
"The reason Floyd called Conor the F word is because Conor called Floyd a monkey. Floyd has nothing against gays or lesbians, Floyd has them on his staff... Floyd has nothing but the utmost respect for gays and lesbians."
