For nearly a year, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have been jawing about a boxing match. It finally appears to be edging close to reality, with UFC president Dana White recently saying he thinks it is going to happen, and Conor McGregor promising to knock out the boxer at his own game.

During a recent interview with FightHype, Mayweather responded.

“I feel like he’s entitled to feel the way he wants to feel,” said Mayweather, as transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting. “Only thing you can do is respect that.

“I just want to say, Dana White, I was overseas when they told me what you said. I wanna say, good work Dana White. Conor McGregor, they said you finally opened your mouth and you’re back to talking s*** and I say that’s cool too.”

The response is in marked contrast with the usual bombast from White and insulting from McGregor.

“With me, it is what it is,” said Mayweather calmly. “If I can’t do nothing, everybody knows I can fight, if I can’t do nothing else. But when I’m not in the ring, I’m a gentleman. Outside the ring, I’m a gentleman.”

“It’s about what I say. It’s whatever I say. Like I’ve said before, it is what it is. If it happens, it happens. We’ll just see.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
