When boxing great Floyd Mayweather was interviewed by sports and entertainment media earlier this week and was asked about his erstwhile competitor Conor McGregor, the undefeated boxing champion only had good words for the UFC superstar.

Mayweather praised McGregor for being a “tough competitor”’, for “not backing down from anyone” and that he’s “not scared.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Floyd Mayweather has such nice things to say about Conor McGregor! Check it out for yourself and watch TMZ Sports on <a href="https://twitter.com/FS1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@FS1</a> at 1am PT <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TMZ?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#TMZ</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TMZSports?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#TMZSports</a> <a href="https://t.co/cFN22i2lt4">pic.twitter.com/cFN22i2lt4</a></p>&mdash; TMZ (@TMZ) <a href="https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1034636760213405698?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 29, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

When the media reached out to McGregor for his reaction on Mayweather’s gesture, he didn’t quite return the love showered on him by the boxing icon. In a tough manner, McGregor said Mayweather can take the olive branch he was offering and be free to shove it. That is, because, he said: “There is no peace here, kid.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Conor McGregor Responds to Floyd&#39;s Peace Offering, &#39;F*ck the Mayweathers!!&#39; <a href="https://t.co/nFfxfwU0ah">https://t.co/nFfxfwU0ah</a></p>&mdash; TMZ (@TMZ) <a href="https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1034640800397705216?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 29, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Mayweather also complimented McGregor for being a “warrior.” The boxing superstar even invited McGregor to train for the Khabib fight at the Mayweather Boxing Club in Vegas.

McGregor didn ‘t only reject the offer, he did so while offering the middle finger to the boxer who beat him in their fight last year via a Technical Knockout (TKO) in the 10th round. McGregor said: “F*ck the Mayweathers except Senior and Roger. There is no peace here kid. Step up or step down.”

Mayweather swiftly dropped his reconciliatory tone presumably after he learned of McGregor’s hostile responses. He took to Twitter to make a swipe against McGregor. Mayweather posted a picture from their fight and wrote: “Easiest 9 figures I ever made!"

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Easiest 9 figures I ever made!

Do the two fighters really despise each other that bad, or are they just prepping their audience for a possible rematch in the ring?
