Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will probably never have an organized fight on pay-per-view. The fight would net both of them millions upon millions of dollars, but the logistics involved with coordinating the two divas "Type A personalities" would be too much of a pain in the ass for one lifetime. But perhaps, you might be able to watch the two money-hungry promoters brawl for free at some point in the near future. Wouldn't that be ironic?

Mayweather was doing an Instagram live chat on a boat on Tuesday when the subject of McGregor came up. That's when the usually composed boxer sent some threats in the Irishman's direction. "I'm fucking McGregor up, too," Mayweather said. "You a punk ass, McGregor. I'm gonna slap McGregor. I'm gonna slap the shit out of McGregor when I see him."

The warning came just a day after McGregor was filmed out in Los Angeles talking trash about Mayweather to a TMZ cameraman. "F*ck Floyd!" he said. "What's Floyd going to do? We're looking for anyone [to box]. I'm the one with the numbers. We're looking for anyone."

It also came a day after Mayweather said McGregor was just "blowing smoke up everybody's ass" by acquiring a California boxing license in an effort to play up a potential bout. "He don't really want to fight," Mayweather said. "He's just doing that to keep his name alive, you know what I'm saying, to stay relevant. He don't really want to fight. He's doing that building his followers, but he's smart."

Guess now all somebody's got to do now is figure out how to get them to bump into one another with some cell phone cameras rolling.
