Floyd Mayweather directed a homophobic slur at Conor McGregor after accusing him of making racist comments during the media tour to promote their Las Vegas fight.

Former five-weight boxing world champion Mayweather will face UFC lightweight title-holder McGregor in 12 rounds under boxing rules in August.

“He called black people ‘monkeys’,” said the American, 40, during a news conference at Wembley Arena on Friday.
