Floyd Mayweather's Father Says He'd "Beat The Sh*t Out Of Conor McGregor"
66-year-old Floyd Mayweather Sr. absolutely thinks he could "beat the sh*t" out of Conor McGregor.
The UFC superstar, 31, was embroiled in controversy when a video surfaced online of him punching an old man in the head over a whiskey dispute.
He has since apologised for the assault but his actions didn't sit well with a lot of people, including Mayweather Sr. who, despite the age disparity, believes he would "whoop his ass".
"I'd beat the sh*t out of Conor," Mayweather Sr. said to TMZ as he was assisted walking up a flight of stairs.
"I would beat the sh*t out of Conor right now. I'm double his age and I would whoop his ass," he hilariously added.

McGregor has expressed his regret over the incident, which took place in an Irish bar last April.
"I was in the wrong," he told ESPN. "That man deserved to enjoy his time in the pub without having it end the way it did.
"I tried to make amends and I made amends back then. But it doesn't matter. I was in the wrong.
"I must come here before you and take accountability and take responsibility. I owe it to the people that have been supporting me. I owe it to my mother, my father, my family. I owe it to the people who trained me in martial arts.
"That's not who I am. That's not the reason why I got into martial arts or studying combat sports. The reason I got into it was to defend against that type of scenario.
"Whatever comes my way, I will face it."
The former UFC 'champ-champ' is hopeful of returning to the famed Octagon before the end of the year.
He's targetting fights with Khabib Nurmagomedov, Nate Diaz, Jose Aldo and Max Holloway, among others.
