Mayweather Says Fight Against McGregor About Race: ‘This Is for All the Blacks Around the World’


Not everything that happens in America is racially charged!

America has never seen the amount of racial segregation that is present today, not even when slavery was common law.

Sports are a big deal in America and UFC is the new up and coming sport getting millions of views. The next scheduled fight that has America talking is between Floyd Mayweather   Jr. and Conor McGregor but the conversation has nothing to do with their fighting abilities.

Mayweather has decided that this too is a racially charged event and he wants the country to choose a race not a fighter.

Via IJR:

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. is now framing his highly anticipated fight with MMA star Conor McGregor as his own personal battle against racism.

In an interview with ESPN, Mayweather accused McGregor of calling him and his crew “monkeys,” an insult that he said stung quite a bit. McGregor has also been criticized for calling Mayweather “boy.”

“I just didn’t like when he called us monkeys,” he said. “I didn’t like it.”

The boxer claimed the fight was no different to him than any other fight, but he then suggested far-reaching racial implications are behind the bout.

“This is for a cause. This is for the American people. This is for all the blacks around the world,” Mayweather said.

Name calling and show boating have always been a part of UFC but some people take it more personally than others. Clearly.
