Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. took a few shots at UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor through social media Wednesday night.
The two athletes have been involved in a feud for the past few months but no actual fight is in sight.
As reported by ABC, Mayweather posted an Instagram video of McGregor tapping out to Nate Diaz at UFC 196. The retired pound-for-pound boxing king offered $10,000 to the best caption posted about the video.
The short clip ends with a screenshot of “49-0 vs. Connor [sic] the Notorious Quitter.”
Maybe as a response McGregor can post a video of when Maywearher lost. Oh right, never mind.
The two champs have teased a potential “super fight” on numerous occasions, but with latter taking 10 months off — even with a boxing license — the chances of that happening seem remote.
According to Rolling Stone, a fight between the two athletes could fetch as much as $500-million in pay-per-view buys.
McGregor obtained a boxing license in the state of California a few weeks ago,
“Man, I don’t fight in California. What did he get a license in California for,” Mayweather said, per FightHype.com. “I’ma tell you like this, he’s blowing smoke up everybody’s ass,” the undefeated boxing champion added.
“He don’t really want to fight because I went to his boss. He don’t really want to fight. He’s just doing that to keep his name alive, you know what I’m saying, to stay relevant. He don’t really want to fight. He’s doing that building his followers, but he’s smart.”
