Floyd Mayweather does not say whether he thinks Conor McGregor is racist

Cut my mic off? Cut my mic off, cut the champ's mic off? "Hell no. You f-king weasel and you f-king b-ch".

"We all know there's only 2 types of boys-a white boy and a cowboy-and I'm neither", 49-0 Mayweather said.

And when McGregor told Brazilian fighter Jose Aldo, "I own this town, I own Rio de Janeiro".

But in their second of four press conferences in Toronto, McGregor took it to a whole new level. And finally more people are calling him out about it.

The tour ends with its fourth stop in London - who knows, that may be more rounds than the fight many experts believe to be lopsided for the undefeated Mayweather.

As Mayweather draped himself in the green, white and orange, McGregor went and grabbed a wad of cash from Mayweather's bag.

What's trash talk against Mayweather without mentioning his ineptitude to read? "While we're at it, f-k Showtime too". He'll turn 41 years old in February.

Weintraub said he would continue to devote significant resources to the case and stay at the farm until the search was complete. In addition to five local law enforcement agencies, the FBI and Pennsylvania state police also joined in the investigation.

"Floyd is 40 years of age, he's been around the fight game, I think the two of them are having a lot of fun with it".

Courtesy of a knockout of Eddie Alvarez in the main event of UFC 205 at "The World's Most Famous Arena", the 5-foot-9, 155-pound McGregor added the UFC lightweight championship to his resume, going along with the featherweight title he won in December of 2015.

But in NY, where a "Hamilton" seat can cost you a rent check, there's still a deal to be found - even in the fight game.

McGregor encouraged the crowd to shout expletives at Mayweather and his family before launching into a almost 10-minute profanity-laced tirade during a stop Wednesday in Toronto.

"Shout out to all the stripper b-ches on his payroll. He has 50", McGregor said. We're talking about 21 years. B-- I do numbers. "You sing it for me, you dance for me!".

The back-and-forth banter is for one reason, and that's obviously to increase hype and anticipation for a bout that could legitimately be the biggest fight of all-time in any combat sport. "Send the contract. It's done". "It's done", McGregor said.

Mayweather fired right back and grabbed an Irish Tricolour from the crowd. Of course, McGregor wasn't about to allow Mayweather to disrespect his home country of Ireland as he gave him a rather stern warning about what to expect if he did anything to the flag.
