Floyd Mayweather made the most out of visit to ESPN, in addition to the interview featured in “First Take”, Floyd also appeared in a Facebook live interview with Brian Campbell on Wednesday. During the interview he claimed to be the face of MMA.
“I’m not just the face of boxing, I’m the face of Mixed Martial Arts and I’m not even an MMA fighter. I haven’t seen an MMA fight in a while but anytime I see an MMA fighter that wants to take a picture with me, I’m gonna take a picture with them because they go through a lot. Fighters go through a lot to get to a certain level and MMA fighters go through a lot just like boxers go through a lot.”
His goal while in the ESPN facilities seemed to be to get Conor McGregor to either stop running his mouth, or take the Floyd’s offer and make the fight.
He then proceeded to say Conor is a quitter and that he believed he also lost the second bout with his friend Nate Diaz.
“I want to tell everybody this, right now. Conor McGregor, do he want to fight? Absolutely not. I’m trying to see if he really want to fight but we can’t make the fight happen because he’s not his own boss. And I want the world to know this: just a fight, two fights ago, he was tapping out. He was just quitting. Call me what you wanna call me, but I’m not a quitter. I don’t quit.”
Campbell intervened to state that McGregor had avenged that loss in August, to which Floyd immediatly replied with how he saw the fight go down.
“Honestly I thought he lost. And it’s wrong that Nate Diaz, I mean, when I talked to Nate Diaz on facetime he told me that they put him on a shelf. He says ‘Floyd, I want to fight. Ever since the second fight with Conor McGregor they put me on a shelf. I’m ready to stay busy and stay active.”
