The Daily Mail quoted Mayweather as saying: "I want to go out there this weekend and have fun, then I have another exhibition Dubai in November and me and Conor McGregor in 2023."
"We don't know if it's going to be an exhibition of a real fight. But there's been talks of both. I would prefer an exhibition."
"So, guys like Conor McGregor and guys that don't really hit hard such as YouTubers or UFC guys, I don't really mind colliding with those kinds of individuals but nothing where I am going to put myself in a position where I am going to harm myself or hurt myself."
Then, in order to obscure Mayweather, he tweeted a second picture of the fight while tagging the accounts of his numerous commercial ventures and sports alliances.
