The Moment McGregor Annihilates Showtime TV Boss On Stage

Moments into proceedings McGregor grabbed the mic and taunted Mayweather for having strippers on his payroll, not wearing a suit and bringing along a "schoolbag" when he can't read.

However, Mayweather's father and trainer, Floyd Mayweather Sr played down suggestions that McGregor's jibe was racist.

McGregor wore a white Gucci mink coat and raised a steel chair high over his head during a press conference at Madison Square Garden in November to promote his last UFC fight.

He also hit out at his dress code once again.

"Twenty-eight years of age and I'm getting fight checks and promoter checks", McGregor said. "I've known you for 21 years".

There was a genuine disdain built by anyone McGregor lined up against and most who've faced him still hold a grudge to this day. "If it was, it wouldn't take one round for me to knock him out".

"If I come out good out of this next fight, I'm looking at October-November", she said. McGregor's coach, John Kavanagh, fired one of the loudest shots, though, on social media.

Featuring a boxing match between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, the entire event will go down on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. McGregor takes a book bag from Mayweather and makes fun of him because he says the bag only contains "about 5 grand".

"To set the record straight, at no time did Showtime or event productions intentionally cut microphones during Tuesday's kickoff event in Los Angeles", Espinoza said in a statement emailed to the Los Angeles Times on Thursday.

Knowing how skilled both men are at selling a fight, war of words is only going to get more personal.

"If you believe in yourself like you say you believe in yourself, bet your whole fight check you b-ch", Mayweather said.

Boxing greats Mike Tyson, Freddie Roach and Amir Khan are among the big names who have already declared the contest a mismatch but Kavanagh laughed off Mayweather's claims he would win even if he was taking on McGregor at his own mixed martial arts game.

At one point he grabbed an Irish flag from the crowd and posed in front of McGregor.
