Conor McGregor taunts Floyd Mayweather with 'insult suit'

"I'm not the same fighter I was 21 years ago", Mayweather said in his MayMac World Tour press conference Tuesday in Los Angeles, via MMA Fighting. Uncle Sam, received $26,000,000.00 from me in 2015!

A press conference is always going to be tough with McGregor's personality, and this promotion is the start of a four-city tour across the USA - so some thought the American could be in for a long ride.

If you want to see the August 26 fight - in a legal way, anyway - you're going to have pay big bucks, especially if you hope to be there in person.

"Let me show you [expletives] what a $100 million fighter looks like". McGregor was full of energy and moved around a grim looking Mayweather as he sat quietly on a stool, and taunted him saying, "On August 26, this man will be unconscious, he's too small, he's too frail".

The Irishman perhaps realised that he had crossed a line as he quickly changed his comments to: "Dance for me, Sir!"

For once, we feel, Trump may indeed have made sense if he actually happened to mention that the whole fight could get ruined if he attends in person.

Not this time though as UFC star McGregor was getting under Mayweather's skin from the get-go. McGregor said in what sounded uncomfortably like a racist slur.

The next stop on the tour will be in Toronto, Canada on Wednesday where I'm sure we will see more fireworks between the two.

Nevertheless, Trump will definitely be watching the match on television.

"It went good", White said after the presser. "Now I really know that this is it". The crowd was awesome. "But that press conference was hilarious". Approximately 20,000 people showed up to see the debut press conference for this fight in Los Angeles. The undefeated fighter was still the best pound-for-pound boxer, and he was making more money than any athlete in the world. All free tickets for the tour were sold out.

McGregor also used race to drum up interest in his fight with Brazilian great Jose Aldo.

According to a poll on the Showtime Boxing Twitter account, 54 percent of the voters chose McGregor as the victor of Day 1 of the media tour.
