Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor is a fight that lots of people want to see happen. And it looks like Mayweather is trying to verbally bait McGregor into getting into the ring with him.
Sporting News reports that Floyd recently called Conor a “b***h” during an interview in London and insisted that he was not afraid to battle the UFC fighter.
“If he [McGregor] really wants to fight, sign the contract,” said Mayweather. “You keep telling everybody ‘I’m scared of you, I’m scared of you’ — this is what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna get a contract typed up tonight, I’m gonna sign it and I’m gonna fax it over to Conor McGregor and see if he’s gonna sign it.
“Conor McGregor, you a bi**h,” he added.
This isn’t the first time that Floyd has used the “b” word to taunt McGregor. In December 2016, Mayweather referred to Conor as a “bi**h” in an Instagram Live broadcast, TMZ reports. He also posted a video of Conor getting choked during a fight against Nate Diaz and offered $10,000 to the person who could come up with the best Instagram caption.

Conor McGregor has gotten his fair share of taunts in as well.
As Inquisitr previously reported, earlier this year McGregor was baiting Floyd after the undefeated boxing champion tweeted that there would be no fight between. In the tweet, he said that Mayweather had retired on his arrival to his hometown, Las Vegas.

Conor’s baiting worked as it elicited a response tweet from “Money” Mayweather. In it, he insisted that Conor needed to handle his UFC business before he could square up against him.
