Conor McGregor tore into Floyd Mayweather’s bodyguard Greg La Rosa, accusing the “Money Team” heavy of being a ‘juice head’
While the accusations thrown at La Rosa by McGregor may have hardly been the most imaginative, the bodyguard has confirmed that he has taken the slur personally.
“In Brooklyn, basically, Floyd said, ‘point to the easy work,’ and we pointed at him and he started saying the ‘tapout’ stuff and I think that was getting to Conor so he kind of drew his attention to that and he looked over at me and the other guy Ray (Jizzy Mack) and he said, ‘look at these two juice heads,’” La Rosa recalled. “So I guess at that point he probably had enough of him, he had to go at me. So I thought it was very, he looked at me and he said, ‘look at these two juice heads,’ and Floyd, I can’t remember what Floyd said after that. Floyd said something after that.”
“So I think he walked away for a bit and then he came back and said some stuff to me like, ‘you’re on juice,’ and I told him right there, I said, ‘no, never,’” he continued. “I said, ‘I’m not’. I said, ‘I’ll do a USADA test right now and I’ll bet you a hundred thousand dollars that I’m not,’ and he said, ‘yeah right, yeah right,’ and I said, ‘I’ll take it right now, I’ll take the blood right after the show.’”
“And it kind of got him like, ‘no way’ and he said, I think he said something along the lines of, ‘this is a real body,’ or something. And then I just told him, I said, ‘you know what, when you’re standing next to me’, I said, ‘put on a shirt cause you’re embarrassing yourself standing next to me’. I figured it would just rattle him up a little bit. That’s all it is for me.”
La Rosa certainly feels that this particular accusation should be debunked. Conor McGregor, however, is unlikely to be moved either way…
