Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor live.Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather’s first live press conference as their world tour to promote their megafight began in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
McGregor arrived dressed to impress — although today’s suit didn’t have anything written on it — while Mayweather was again happy to sport a more casual look. The boxing champion danced his way on-stage in a black T-shirt and cap and it wasn’t long before the two men were nose-to-nose trash-talking.
Fight fans were again merciless with Showtime executive Stephen Espinoza when he opened the event — booing so loud it was hard to hear him.
The BIG3 said Tuesday that it has reached a financial and promotional deal to move the location of its title game. Terms weren’t disclosed.
“We are grateful to MGM Resorts, Mayweather Promotions and UFC for presenting us with a generous offer that we could not refuse, ensuring that our fans will have the best experience possible at our BIG3 Championship Finals at the MGM Grand Garden Arena,” BIG3 co-founders Ice Cube and Jeff Kwatinetz said in a statement.
“We are happy we could work together to create an opportunity for our fans to experience both events, making August 26 the most exciting day in sports and entertainment Las Vegas has ever seen.”Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor live Fight Night
