More importantly, though, are questions about the formats of the remaining press conferences. "I just showed you all a $100 million check I didn't even cash onstage", he said, referring to a check from his fight against Pacquiao. Yours truly (Marcin Migdal) will join Bradie at the conference.
The profane insults and the posturing that normally can be enjoyed only in your better prison exercise yards are bound to be more entertaining than the August 26 fight itself.
It's getting real.The first press conference for the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor fight took place on July 11, only a day after reports about Mayweather's petition to the IRS surfaced.
"The 0 has got to go", McGregor declared, referring to Mayweather's flawless 49-0 record.
Mixed martial arts star McGregor has never boxed as an amateur or professionally but will face undefeated former multiple world champion Mayweather at the T-Mobile Arena on August 26 under normal boxing rules.
Skeptics and critics have all given McGregor 0% chance of winning, but UFC fans disagree and as such the private betting on this fight will be the biggest in history. White said there are going to be a lot of requests, but he'd still hold tickets for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady if he wanted them.
Former Utah Jazz forward DeMarre Carroll traded to Brooklyn Nets
Yes, he's owed $30-million over the next two seasons, but Brooklyn had plenty of cap space to take the hit. Formerly dubbed the "Junkyard Dog", DeMarre Carroll was once a fan favorite as a member of the Utah Jazz.
On Aug 26, this man will be unconscious, he's too small, he's too frail.
"He says "I see what happens in my mind and it happens". That's it. What more can I say?"
McGregor even joked that because of Mayweather's tax problems, Mayweather couldn't even afford a suit for the press conference.
After McGregor sat back down, Mayweather was introduced and simply started chanting "hard work" with the small percentage of the crowd replying "dedication", which is Mayweather's mantra.
"You line them up and I will knock them down".
McGregor confidently claimed he would KO his opponent inside four rounds - despite the fact this will be his first boxing fight. "Or two years ago", Mayweather said.
Many expect the Irishman to lose to Mayweather, whose boxing experience makes him favourite to win.
