CJ Watson says Conor McGregor wearing his jersey was ‘stupid’

Conor McGregor

CJ Watson is offering some thoughts several years later on his unexpected inclusion in the Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather beef.

During a Reddit AMA session this weekend, the former Golden State Warriors guard was asked what he thought about McGregor wearing his jersey in an effort to troll Mayweather before their megafight in 2017.

“Stupid because I had nothing to do with the situation,” Watson replied.

If you recall, McGregor was seen wearing Watson’s No. 23 jersey with the Warriors specifically because of Watson’s link to Josie Harris, the mother of Mayweather’s children (which you can read more about here). The episode also triggered a war of words between McGregor and Draymond Green, who currently wears No. 23 for the Warriors and thought that McGregor was wearing his jersey instead.

Watson, now 36 years old, spent ten seasons in the NBA and is now playing overseas in Turkey. Unfortunately, Watson may now be more known for his entanglement in the McGregor-Mayweather feud than for his actual NBA career, and he is clearly not too thrilled about it.

Floyd Mayweather’s daughter Iyanna arrested for felony aggravated assault

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather’s daughter, Iyanna, is in jail in Houston after being arrested early Saturday morning after an alleged physical confrontation at her boyfriend’s home, TMZ reports.

Iyanna is dating rapper NBA Youngboy. According to TMZ, Iyanna was at Youngboy’s home in Texas when another woman, Lapattra Lashai Jacobs, showed up. The two women reportedly had an argument. Jacobs told Mayweather to leave, while Mayweather allegedly responded by saying she was Youngboy’s fiancee and that Jacobs should leave.

The two ended up getting in a fight in the kitchen, with Mayweather allegedly charging at Jacobs with two knives and stabbing her.

Mayweather allegedly said the altercation began when Jacobs pulled her hair and ran into the kitchen. Youngboy supposedly was handcuffed but later released.

Gossip of the City says Jacobs is in critical condition after being stabbed.

Iyanna has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Her bond was set at $30,000.

Iyanna (aka “Yaya”) is 19 years old and the daughter of Mayweather and Melissia Brim.

The sacrifices we make for our loved ones are always blessings later on down the line. I dropped out in the 12th grade, with just a couple of credits left to go just to give my parents and siblings a better life. I encourage and preach to my children every day that education is extremely important because I want them to be better than me. My daughter excelled and finished high school when she was just 15yrs old, but decided to finally walk the stage today and have the honor of receiving her diploma in her hand amongst her peers and family. This is yet another family goal and a notch under our belts that makes me proud to be a Father. I love you @moneyyaya ya! Keep up the good work…we are just getting started!

Floyd Mayweather Jr. posts multi-photo tribute to late ex-girlfriend Josie Harris

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Jr. posted a multi-photo tribute to his late ex-girlfriend Josie Harris on Friday, three days after her death.

Harris was found dead inside her car on Tuesday night, according to authorities. She was 40 years old. No foul play was suspected.

Harris and Floyd shared three children.

In his tribute, which involved him sharing several separate photos, Mayweather called Harris:

– My Angel
– My Heart
– My Love
– My Rock
– My Family
– My Sweetheart
– My Friend

Here are all the photos of the two, whose past romance began when they were young.


Floyd Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend Josie Harris found dead

Josie Harris

Josie Harris, the ex-girlfriend of Floyd Mayweather Jr. and mother of three of the boxing champion’s children, has died at 40.

Law enforcement sources confirmed to TMZ that Harris was found unresponsive in her car outside her home when police were called to the scene at around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday night. Investigators do not suspect foul play, and the case is being treated a death investigation and not a homicide.

Harris and Mayweather had a long and tumultuous history with one another. Harris accused Mayweather of beating her on multiple occasions, and a 2010 incident led to a 90-day jail sentence for Mayweather. Harris also accused Mayweather of assaulting her in 2005, but she later dropped the charges and admitted she was lying.

Mayweather and Harris were scheduled to go to court later this year stemming from a $20 million lawsuit Harris filed against Floyd. The lawsuit stemmed from Mayweather denying in an interview with Katie Couric that he beat Harris in 2010, claiming he only tried to restrain Harris and that she was on drugs. The story Mayweather told in the interview was much different from what the police report from the incident stated.

Harris posted evidence long after the 2010 incident that indicated she still had some sort of relationship with Mayweather. She was involved in a lawsuit against Mayweather at the time of her death.

Mayweather denied ever having beaten Harris, but his own son even called him a “coward” over the incident.

Floyd Mayweather sends positive note to Deontay Wilder after first loss

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Deontay Wilder used to share something awesome in common prior to Saturday night: they were both undefeated boxers. But after losing to Tyson Fury in their rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this weekend, Wilder can no longer boast a perfect record.

Mayweather understands how physically and mentally tough it is to step in the boxing ring — and put an undefeated record on the line — so he sent a thoughtful note via Instagram Sunday night to Wilder.

“Win, Lose or Draw…. Deontay @BronzeBomber is our brother that has accomplished many triumphs and as a community we should all uplift and support him throughout it all. No matter what, you’re still a winner in my eyes, King!” Mayweather wrote.

That’s an awesome note from Mayweather. Wilder shouldn’t be mocked for losing, though he wasn’t so kind to Anthony Joshua after the British boxer’s first loss. The guy is a great, fun boxer to watch, and he happened to lose to a great heavyweight in Fury. Keep in mind that Fury remains unbeaten in his career as well.

Wilder is still a top three heavyweight in the world, along with Fury and Joshua, and there is absolutely no shame in that. Now, if we could just get Fury and Joshua to fight so that Wilder could face the winner, we’d really have something.

Floyd Mayweather accused of assaulting fan who asked for photo

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Jr has been accused of assaulting a fan at a hotel over the weekend, but video evidence that has surfaced thus far appears to show that the altercation never went beyond verbal.

A 32-year-old man named Ricco Kimborough claims he recognized Mayweather at the Fontainebleau Hilton in Miami on Saturday morning and asked to take a photo with the famous boxer. According to a police report obtained by TMZ, Kimborough alleges that Mayweather turned him down and said, “I can’t even get a good morning first?” At that point, Kimborough claims Mayweather’s security team “pushed him away from Mayweather” and Floyd yelled, “I’ll beat your a–.”

Video footage obtained by TMZ appears to show Kimborough antagonizing Mayweather and not letting things go, though it’s unclear what happened before the camera was rolling. Mayweather wasn’t even near Kimborough during the video, but he did yell to Kimborough that Kimborough can “get your a– whooped for free, too” after Kimborough kept saying he’s a “free man” and can do what he wants. Kimborough then yelled to Floyd that he would get all of the undefeated champion’s money if Floyd touched him.

The Miami Beach Police Department is investigating the case as a simple assault.

Mayweather has been sued in the past for supposedly having his bodyguards beat someone up at a hotel, but it seems unlikely that he is going to face any serious legal consequences in the latest case.

Floyd Mayweather Jr touts second fight with Conor McGregor in Instagram post

Floyd Mayweather Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather Jr. wasted no time inserting himself into the conversation after Conor McGregor’s win over Cowboy Cerrone at UFC 246 in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Following McGregor’s 40-second TKO win, Mayweather went on Instagram and shared a photo of him and McGregor and said “Mayweather McGregor 2”.

Mayweather and McGregor fought in August 2017, with Mayweather prevailing via TKO in the 10th round. The fight marked McGregor’s first professional boxing match and generated 4.3 million pay-per-view buys, which was the second most ever in history. It was so lucrative the two could try to fight again for another massive pay day.

Mayweather has not fought since then, but the opportunity to make big bucks might appeal to him. He is already trying to sway UFC boss Dana White about a second fight.

White has long been interested in getting into boxing promoting, so the two of them working together could make sense. We should also expect Manny Pacquiao to get involved in some form as well.
