He chased Paul, and chaos ensued. Mayweather’s former opponent, Conor McGregor, took notice of all that went down at the event and went on to take a shot at the undefeated boxer.

Hey @leonardellerbe, what the fu*k is Floyd at? The kid curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy. The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him. He should thank him.
It’s embarrassing!” wrote McGregor in a recent Instagram post.

Pro to pro it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch 10m for this fight and he knows it. It was canceled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter. He’d fight a half decent pro and command 20m upwards, yet its this sh*t.
Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad.
Fight someone for real, on your record, or f*ck off mate.
Slap head!
” he added.

McGregor fought Mayweather back in 2017 in what marked the Irishman’s boxing debut. Mayweather claimed a 10th round T/KO stoppage to earn his 50th win as a professional boxer. The event broke pay-per-view records of all sorts in combat sports history.

Mayweather fights Logan Paul on June 6th at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Logan is currently 0-1 as a professional boxer, having lost his debut fight against fellow YouTuber KSI in his debut as a boxer.

Now he is set to fight arguably the greatest boxer of all time in Mayweather. One can expect his brother, Jake, to cause some more chaos over the next few weeks.
