The first press conference for the much hyped Mayweather vs McGregor bout on August 26th took place last night in L.A. The format of the event seemed slightly out of McGregor’s comfort zone with the two fighters making speeches rather than exchanging back and forth verbal blows usually seen in his UFC promos.
At one point during Floyd’s speech, McGregor got hold of a microphone to chip in with his usual brash replies but this was quickly scuppered seemingly by the organisers. The Irishman went on to predict he’ll knock Mayweather out ‘within 4 rounds’.
“Yeah, they took the mic off. Look, f*ck them. F*ck Showtime. F*ck them all. They can do nothing after August 26th. They can try and do all these tricks all they want. August 26th this man will be unconscious. He’s too small, he’s too frail. That’s it. What more can I say?”
McGregor also mocked Floyd Mayweather’s choice of outfit shouting to the crowd “He’s wearing a f*ucking tracksuit” while himself wearing a pin striped ‘F*ck you’ suit.
The next stop on the three legged press tour is Toronto.
