So Floyd "Money" Mayweather has done a little decorating in his Beverly Hills mansion and it dividing the Twittersphere.

The 50-0 fighter took to social media last night to unveil two 8ft portraits. One of himself (of course) and one of Conor McGregor. But people are openly arguing with each other online as to whether the portrait is a mark of respect or the ultimate diss.
Wow.... And if you didn't think they were buds beforehand lol https://t.co/BoaIKOE6EA

Neither Mayweather nor McGregor have commented regarding the purpose of the painting. However, despite all of the name-calling and disrespecting that went on beforehand, the former opponents have shown a lot of respect for one another since the highest grossing boxing match of all time.
So maybe the portrait is a sign of mutual respect? Considering they each received massive pay days from it.
For those of you who didn't stay up to watch the fight (or if you have been living under a rock), Mayweather defeated McGregor in the 10th-round by TKO in late August.
