I’m not sure how unpleasant Mayweather-McGregor’s buildup will be, but Conor certainly has no problem getting as personal as possible. In one of Conor’s latest crazes he was seen wearing a Warriors jersey, something that Draymond Green (which currently bears the number for the team) took exception to Instagram.
But Conor turned his back on Green telling him it was not really his sweater he wore, but rather the shirt of C.J. Watson (who played for the team between ’08 and ’10). Now if that name does not immediately mean anything to you, let me explain …
C.J. Watson is the NBA player who is said to have an intimate relationship with Josie Harris, the mother of three of Floyd’s sons, a few years ago. In fact it was the revelation of this relationship between Watson and Harris that precipitated an assault on Harris by Mayweather – you know – the reason he did that prison term in 2012.
So in the comments section of Draymond Green’s post, McGregor replied:
“That’s C.J Watson’s mate.I do not know who you are.No disrespect to the boy, keep hustling and stay in school.
“Now ask yourself why I’m shaking C.j when I do not know or give a f ** k on basketball.” I throw the heads off the ground. “It’s not a ball.
Despite being hit with a plethora of charges in that domestic incident, Mayweather finally pleaded guilty to minor charges and served two months in jail. And it seems that McGregor is very happy to try to at least try to get underneath Mayweather’s skin in the lead up to his August 26 fight.
