Nonetheless, the topic's become a venue for more trash-talking. Let's hand the mic over to Mr. Mayweather: “Conor McGregor is extremely heavy right now,” the boxer told FightHype.com this week. “Extremely heavy. I think he’s 164, so he’s still got 10 pounds to go.”
McGregor -- a man who wears pinstripes styled out of the repeated phrase "fuck you" -- responded in kind: “He knows nothing,” McGregor said. “Fool of a thing. Let him keep praying. Praying for weight, praying for fatigue, praying for me to take a back step, all he’s doing is praying. But he’s praying to the new god of boxing.”
And on and on and on it goes.
