Tuesday night saw the first stop of the Mayweather vs McGregor World Tour Press Conference kick off at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. The event started off with live performances before Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather took to the stage. In his speech, Conor McGregor gave his prediction and aimed to knock out the undefeated boxer inside four rounds, “Im going to knock him out inside of four rounds, mark my words”.
This is the first time a Mix Martial Artist such as Conor McGregor has crossed over into the boxing world in what has been a highly anticipated super fight. Both men will go twelve rounds as Conor McGregor must strip away all other martial arts in favour of just one fighting discipline. “This isn’t a true fight”, McGregor said during his speech. “If this was a true fight it wouldn’t even take one round”.
Both fighters faced off for the first time and will continue their trash talk to one another as they stop at The Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Canada next.
