The undefeated Floyd Mayweather doesn’t appear to be too worried about his upcoming blockbuster fight with Conor McGregor at all.
On the first episode of UFC’s new vlog series “Mayweather vs. McGregor Embedded,” the boxing icon scarfs down a Burger King sandwich on camera. While doing so, Mayweather proceeds to mock his opponent, getting a laugh out of the squad that’s with him.
“I’m so scared of Conor McGregor!”
In fact, Mayweather is so “frightened” of Conor McGregor that he’s spending nights at his strip club regularly, according to ESPN. With the much hyped fight going down August 26th, Mayweather has been in Vegas for the past week. He’s apparently using that time to turn a profit for his club rather than prep for the match.
A staffer who works at Girl Collection, Mayweather’s club, says that the boxer has been in every night to ensure things are running smoothly. ESPN also reports that Mayweather has been at the club as late as 3:30 a.m., though he claims to have not had a lap dance in 20 years. Fans who want to see Floyd Mayweather have been reportedly flocking to the club. Since admission is $100 including a two-drink minimum, Girl Collection is rolling in the dough right now.
While it seems like Mayweather is being overly cocky, this is just how he prepares for fights. Before his major bout against Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather behaved just about the same. While interviewing with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith back then, Mayweather ate McDonald’s while claiming that “there’s no way to beat him.”
Considering that nobody has been able to yet (and McGregor likely won’t this weekend), Floyd can very well prep however he wants. It likely won’t change the result of his bout with McGregor.
