Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor will meet in the ring tonight for one of the biggest boxing matches the world has ever seen. For years, these two fighters have been throwing verbal jabs each other’s way, and now they finally get to let it all out to see who the real champion is.
Although McGregor is known primarily for his mixed martial arts fights in the UFC, he agreed to meet Mayweather in the ring for a boxing match. Mayweather, of course, is a legendary, undefeated boxer with 49 wins to his name.
Both fighters are known for not only their fighting but for their respective abilities to talk smack leading up to each showdown, so it’s only natural that the verbal sparring leading up to the biggest fight of all time is among the most amusing exchanges of trash talk the world has ever seen.
McGregor has made fun of Mayweather’s age by posting pictures of his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr. as if they were his upcoming opponent. Mayweather hosted a $10,000 caption contest on Instagram for the best description of a video of McGregor being choked out by Nate Diaz in a UFC fight. And fans of each fighter have chipped in their own contributions to the war of words, making it known which side they’re on in The Money Fight.
