Floyd Mayweather hurls homophobic slur at Conor McGregor in press conference

The Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor promotional tour mercifully came to an end Friday. But not before Mayweather hurled a homophobic slur in McGregor's direction. 

At their press conference in London, Mayweather called McGregor a "punk, f–––, ho," according to ESPN's Dan Rafael. McGregor has been been the one under scrutiny for much of the tour, fending off racism allegations. Earlier in the week, the UFC star instructed Mayweather to "dance for me, boy." 

When asked Wednesday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" whether he would win a match against Rocky Balboa in "Rocky III", the UFC Star wondered aloud if that was the rendition with the "dancing monkeys" in the celebrity gym.

"I’m trying to remember which one was Rocky III. Was that the one in the celebrity gym? I can’t remember if that’s the one with the dancing monkeys or not," he said. 

To defend himself against the charges, McGregor claimed he is "half-black below the waist." Lovely.

Meanwhile, we also found out this week that Mayweather, who's been arrested or cited for domestic violence on seven occasions, doesn't pay his taxes on time. Now who's excited to plop down $99.95 on Aug. 26 to watch these two duke it out?
