In an exclusive interview just two nights before the highly anticipated matchup between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, Hollywood Unlocked’s very own founder and CEO, Jason Lee, sits down with the champ himself for one last pre-fight sit-down discussion.
Jason gets straight to the point, as he asks Floyd the million dollar question – Will he knock out Conor McGregor? The champ responds by saying he won’t answer the same question over and over again, and that everyone needs to tune in to the fight on Showtime this Saturday to watch for themselves.
In a boxing match that’s already surpassed the May 2, 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao that held the gate record of 72 million, fans across the globe are expecting an even bigger fight against McGregor.
The two go into the discussion of how the media portrays Floyd, as the champ explains how they want to see the lavish lifestyle, including the jewelry, cars, and homes, but when he puts it on full display, he’s looked at as “arrogant and cocky.” Floyd continues, saying:
“But then when I don’t wanna show that, I wanna show me feeding the homeless, and me giving back to the American citizens, or me just giving back period, to the less fortunate. They never show that. They say, ‘oh this is boring.'”
The conversation takes a turn when Floyd calls out Jason for talking about his women on Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored. Being notorious for having multiple women in his life, Floyd simply says, “having one is too close to having none.”
Jason brings up the topic of Justin Bieber saying Floyd won’t knockout Conor, and asks the champ what he thinks about the pop star “finding Jesus.” Floyd responds:
“He’s in a place right now, you know, that he’s focused on church, he’s focused on his new team, he’s focused on the Lord, and the only thing I can do is give him the upmost respect.”
