"What it has also done is demonstrated the incredible enthusiasm for this event", Showtime executive vice president Stephen Espinoza said. In that piece, Guillermo asked Mayweather and McGregor the silly question of who would win a fight: them, or Rocky III?
He arrived to his second "World Tour" press conference in Toronto early on Wednesday.
But headed into his anticipated August 26th match with White's new golden boy Conor McGregor, Mayweather apparently doesn't want to grind that axe any longer.
Mayweather has tried his best to pander to the cities the two have visited in their world tour of press conferences the last few days, but nothing has seemed to work. And finally more people are calling him out about it.
McGregor encouraged the crowd to shout expletives at Mayweather and his family before the Irishman launched into a almost 10-minute profanity-laced tirade.
"Let me show you what a $100 million fighter looks like", said the 40-year-old American, holding the cheque aloft. After Mayweather offered the flag to McGregor, McGregor threw it right back at Floyd, again earning cheers from the crowd.
"We not talking about being at the top one year, two years, three years, four years". McGregor laughed off the charade and exposed the lack of money in Mayweather's bag. "Dress your f**king age!"
The first simultaneous two-division titlist in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Conor McGregor is looking to make more history in his combat sports career, and is taking his skills to the boxing ring in order to prove it.
In fact, Floyd actually tries to turn it into a joke - "We all know there's only 2 types of boys - a white boy and a cowboy - and I'm neither". "You sing it for me, you dance for me!" "If it was, it wouldn't take one round for me to knock him out".
"He can't even afford a suit anymore", said McGregor.
Mayweather, who is coming out of retirement to fight McGregor, had earlier said that he can not pay off his tax liability from 2015 until he fights the MMA star.
