Conor McGregor has sent a message to 'Money Man' Floyd Mayweather ahead of tonight's starting world tour to promote their Las Vegas super fight on August 26.

It was reported on ESPN this week that Mayweather owes millions in taxes to the IRS and will use the cash from the McGregor fight to settle up.

McGregor was filmed out shopping in Beverly Hills by TMZ and was asked about the Mayweather reports and, typically, he had an abrupt reply.

"I don't give a f*ck what he did," said McGregor.

"I don’t give a f*ck. I don't care what he done. He should've stayed retired. He's f*cked now. That's the god's honest truth. He should have paid his taxes and stayed retired. And kept my name out of his f*cking mouth."
