Conor McGregor called Jake Paul’s Floyd Mayweather brawl “ embarrassing ” and reacted at length to Thursday’s dramatic press event.
The legendary former champion first met Jake’s brother Logan Paul ahead of their show on June 6, but things quickly got out of hand.
Jake clashed with Mayweather and stole his hat, prompting a furious reaction from the ‘disrespected’ 44-year-old.
McGregor, who previously fought Floyd in his own bizarre crossover fight in 2017, responded with a post for Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, on Instagram.
The Irishman started: “Hey Leonard Ellerbe, what the hell is Floyd?
“The kid has curled up, hasn’t hit back once, and Floyd is still playing the badass.
“The kid actually just made this mess of a situation that Floyd is out of the sewer for him.” He should thank him. It’s embarassing!
“From pro to pro, it’s embarrassing. He won’t scratch $ 10 million for this fight and he knows it. It has already been canceled once.
“The world is watching this on Twitter. He would fight a decent half-pro and command $ 20 million on the upside, but it’s the mess.
“Whichever way you turn this around, it’s sad. Fight someone for real, on your drive, or f *** off mate. Slap the head!
