"He called black people 'monkeys'," said the American, 40, during a news conference at Wembley Arena on Friday.

"He totally disrespected black women," added Mayweather. "Then he spoke disrespectfully to my mother and he spoke disrespectfully to my daughter."

Responding to Mayweather at the New York press conference on Thursday, McGregor said: "I'm a multicultural individual and I don't have any ill feelings towards anyone. I don't even see colour.

"Then, speaking to BBC Sport after the London event, he said: "I know who I am, people around me know who I am. We know his history, but I didn't bring it up. The fight game is ruthless and it's what I expect."
