As far as Floyd Mayweather's concerned, he and Uncle Sam have nothing to talk about.

Responding to reports that claim Mayweather filed a tax court petition for a reprieve on back taxes from 2015 until he squares off with Conor McGregor on Aug. 26, the undefeated boxer took to Facebook to claim he'd forked over a whopping $26M to the IRS two years ago:

"Money" further attempted to put out the fire by maintaining that both his finances and "empire" were in order, this not a day after McGregor stated that Mayweather should have stayed on the couch in response to the reported tax issues.
