Joshua has been in the Nevada desert with promoter Eddie Hearn as he plots the next defence of his world title.
A much-anticipated rematch with Wladimir Klitschko could take place in Vegas as Joshua bids to crack the US.
And the Watford-born world champ has nailed his flag firmly to the Mayweather mask.
He told Boxing News at the weekend: “I’m Mayweather, I’m a fan of the TMT camp.
“You can’t talk s*** to a champion like that.
“Mayweather has done it from the amateurs, people forget he’s done it from like ground zero.
“Let’s not forget, everyone only remembers Mayweather for his last 10 fights, he’s had it hard. But it’s entertainment isn’t it and he knows how to sell a fight.
“But you can’t f*** with Mayweather, he’s done it – done it from the ground up.”
McGregor has been involved in a war of words himself – with NBA star Draymond Green.
Green hit out at the Irishman after he was pictured wearing a CJ Watson Golden State Warriors jersey – a subtle reference to Mayweather’s chequered past of domestic abuse.
Watson allegedly slept with Josie Harris, the mother of Mayweather’s children, leading to the boxer’s arrest and charge for battery.
Green, who now wears the No 23 jersey, said: “We rocking with Floyd bro not you… take that off bruh @thenotoriousmma.”
Who is Draymond Green?
- Born in Saginaw, Michigan, on March 4 1990
- Starred in college for Michigan State, winning multiple individual awards including coaches Player of the Year in 2012

McGregor hit back: “I don’t know who the f*** you are. No disrespect tho kid, keep hustling and stay in school.
“Now ask yourself why I’m rocking CJ when I don’t know or give a f*** about basketball.
“I dribble heads off the floor. Not a ball. This is no game here kid.”
Tickets for the richest fight in history are set to go on sale this week – with face-value prices ranging from £385 to £7,696.
