BREAKING NEWS. Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather can read. Or at least that’s what this aptly released video would have you believe.
You may or may not have seen yesterday’s press conference but at one point, Conor McGregor, the undisputed king of trashtalk, called Mayweather out for being illiterate, according to TMZ.
At some point if you were Floyd Mayweather wouldn't you learn to read just so people couldn't make fun of you for not being able to read? pic.twitter.com/JjET1einxt

It’s a rumour that’s been floating around for millenia. Can one of the world’s greatest boxers be broken down when it comes to looking at words?
Well almost out of thin air a video has emerged of Mayweather effortlessly reading promos off a teleprompter. The man’s a genius.
In the clip he says such classic lines as:
Hi, I’m Floyd Money Mayweather. Don’t miss the fight everyone is talking about as I take on Conor McGregor.
What a surreal state of affairs.
If there’s one thing to remember from the entire fiasco, it’s that McGregor and Mayweather are taking to the ring on August 26.
