'Just know, that bum will never be me or be on my level. I’m just built different, my mindset is on another planet, my skills are second to none, I’m a natural born winner and yes I talk a lot of trash, but every time I back it up.
'This is what they hate. It’s sad that you can be a poor black kid from the ghetto that has dealt with racism your whole life and work extremely hard to put yourself and your family in a better position, and most of the hate come from my own people
Connor cannot even win in his own sport, but talking about coming back to boxing to fight Pacquiao. Nobody wants to see that, it's like my leftovers eating leftovers.'
McGregor and Mayweather faced off in an unprecedented crossover boxing match in 2017 , which saw the American beat the UFC star via a tenth round knockout.
In the build-up to the Las Vegas showdown four years ago, McGregor used the words 'monkey' and 'boy' in a way which had been construed by many as offensive.
During one press conference, McGregor shouted at Mayweather: 'Dance for me, boy,' after the American broke out into a dance on stage. How McGregor used the word 'boy' has serious racial connotations - and has historically been used to belittle African Americans.
And in another pre-fight interview, the Notorious came under fire for saying 'I can't remember if that's the one with the dancing monkeys or not,' when trying to remember what film Rocky III was.
There is no scene of dancing monkeys in the film which led to people believing that McGregor was referring to scenes in which black fighters sparred at Apollo Creed's Los Angeles gym.
Mayweather did not take offence to McGregor's comments at the time but did react to those connotations in the summer of 2020 in the wake of George Floyd's death and the Black Lives Matter movement.
