Watch: Floyd Mayweather Sr. Viciously Rips Into ‘Pathetic’ Performance From Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather Sr. chose to not follow in the more respectful footsteps of his younger namesake when he slammed the performance of his son’s opponent after last night’s fight.

It’s becoming increasingly apparent that Floyd Mayweather Sr. does seem at times to harbour even more of a dislike for Conor McGregor than his son does.

In truth, it’s fair enough when you think about, Conor – despite finding difficulty in penetrating the bulletproof mindset of Floyd Jr, found some early success with the elder Mayweather as he so famously slagged him off in one of his earlier media appearances during the Los Angeles stop on the MayMac World Tour.

With the fight now done and dusted, McGregor did a lot during its ten-round run-time to convince the world of boxing that his skills are, in fact, legit but despite the waves of praise that came in for the Irishman following his gutsy effort, one man – Floyd Mayweather Sr. – remains unconvinced.

When asked if he was impressed with what Conor brought to the table inside the ring against his son, he had this to say.

“No I wasn’t. I ain’t ever seen anyone talk like the way he talked and then go out there and fight like that. I mean that was pathetic, the way he fought. All the illegal punches and stuff he did, hitting someone on the back of the head. Doing everything, I mean come on man. All that kind of stuff is crazy.”

“I’ll be honest with you. I ain’t saying nothing about him, he showed me no boxing, I ain’t seen nothing. Rabbit punches yes. I told my son in the corner that when he gets tired, he’s going to get real tired.”

As for McGregor’s future in boxing, Floyd Sr. did not sugarcoat his words when warning the Irishman away from the sweet science.

“Let me tell you something. If he keeps fighting and doing that in boxing, somebody’s gonna kill him.”
