Floyd Mayweather is still not talking about fighting Conor McGregor for mega-bucks but he is talking about fighting.
The Money man is back in the mood.
The surest indicator yet that Mayweather is preparing for his cross-over extravaganza with UFC super star McGregor came when he threatened to ‘kick the a***’ of the Englishman who will challenge his world champion in London this Saturday night.

Not only was he ready to ‘give a smack’ to Liam Walsh at the pre-fight media conference but also his two brothers ‘right here and now.’
When asked if he was ready to follow McGregor in signing the contract for a Las Vegas super-fight this autumn, Mayweather demurred in deference to Gervonta Davis, the youngest American world champion who he promotes.
Mayweather talked thus: ‘Gervonta and Walsh are here for a big fight and it would be disrespectful to them for me to say anything else.’
But when Liam’s twin Ryan, who is on the undercard at the Copperbox in the Olympic Park, and elder brother Michael started heckling and then crudely insulting him, one of the greatest boxers of all time was bridling to get his hands on them.
He told promoter Frank Warren: ‘Get those two leprechauns out of here before I give ’em a slap.’
When the four-letter abuse of him continued in the gilded setting of a five star west London hotel, he shouted: ‘I’m 40 and I’ll still kick all your a***s in one night.’
