MacGregor and Mayweather staged a wild show. Just insane!
Conor MacGregor is like a deputy who wants to campaign for voters. The first conference before the fight Mayweather - McGregor, scheduled for August 26. There are more than 11 thousand people in the hall. UFC lightweight champion walks alone on stage. Conor is trying to fill the space. Vigorously chews the cud, dances, greets someone in the hall. Conor is an excellent, custom-made navy blue suit with a light strip. Upon closer inspection, it turns out that the stripes are formed into the words “fuck you”. Hard and very funny.
Show for the whole family
As always, Mayweather appears surrounded by a large retinue — guards, adjutants from The Money Team, several women and small children. In Floyd, a baseball cap and a branded jacket of the own label The Money Team, sleeves decorated with stars and stripes of the US state flag.
Finally, the first official meeting face to face.Conor is actively gesticulating and saying something. Floyd is motionless as a rock.
What is happening is not a pompous event in front of, perhaps the highest grossing boxing fight in history, but rather a comic presentation from The Money Team. Everything was shot without any frills, the sound sometimes fails. The YouTube broadcast of the event is fancifully commented by fans. The number of messages in Cyrillic is impressive. The name of Habib Nurmagomedov periodically pops up. It seems his fans have come running here.
On power engineering
All sat on the chairs. The first is the head of the sports department on Showtime, Stephen Espinosa. The second is a representative of MGM Grand Entertainment and Sports Richard Stern. At its site, T-Mobile Arena, and the battle will take place. Both speak very formally and are boring - the audience is more excited by Conor’s gestures than by their speeches.
“How are you doing, Los Angeles?”, - the UFC president Dana White shouts sobily. He's screwed up and brief.
“Ladies and gentlemen, UFC lightweight champion The Notorious Conor MacGregor,” White yells, and immediately sits down. A bored mob greets the Irish with delight.
Benefit Conor McGregor
“Look at him. He can no longer afford the costume.Someone's zero from the track record should disappear. It's finished with him. I'll knock him out for four rounds. Remember my words, ”says MacGregor, and then reveals the secret of his costume.
“[In box] a limited set of rules. In fact, it will be half of this fight, a quarter of this fight. He had never encountered such power, movement, and ferocity as mine, ”Conor continues.
Conor talks about his son and the rules of battle.
"Gloves can not be Mexican or horsehair," - said the Irishman.
Floyd is sitting with a bored look.
One check for $ 100 million
Floyd is represented by his regular business partner and employee of his promotional company Leonard Ellerby.
“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, undefeated, 12-time world champion Floyd Mayweather. Five weight categories. The best boxer, regardless of weight. The best boxer of all time. Floyd Mayweather, ”Ellerby shouts, looking like Dana's dark-skinned counterpart.
Floyd is like a dictator from a fantastic movie of the 80s. He looks jerky and at times not quite adequate.
“Hard work,” Floyd shouts his motto and repeats it several times.
“And dedication,” the crowd scans the second part of Mayweather’s motto.
“I still have it,” says Floyd, smiling the first time for the event.
- What is it, any work? - Mayweather continues
“Any work is easy work,” someone from the audience picks up another Floyd motto.
“21 is an important figure. This is the number of years during which I kick ass. I do not care this ring or octagon. I'm just kicking ass, ”says Mayweather.
“No need to slam shit,” Conor responds from his seat.
Floyd shouts out his motto again, and then continues his monologue.
“I do not retreat before anyone. Put the opponents in a row and I will knock them together like pins. On August 26, I will knock out this bitch, too, ”says Mayweather, who won the last early victory in 2011. Floyd begins to pace the stage, throwing a few blows into the air.
“He hasn't knocked anyone out for 20 years,” says Conor.
All participants of the event look as if they were drinking an vodka cocktail with energy drinks an hour before, or were taking something else stronger.

Floyd asks to bring him a backpack and gets out an unsigned check for $ 100 million.
“Let me demonstrate what a 100 million fighter looks like.I still have 100 million, and he didn’t even touch that amount, ”Floyd explains.
"This is for tax," shouts Conor.
“Yes, I’m the tax office - and I’ll take tax off your ass,” Mayweather retorts.
“It looks good for a fighter who receives a seven-figure sum [for a fight], an eight-digit one, but I get a nine-digit amount. We all know that Mr. Now Knock likes to give up, ”says Floyd, hinting at Conor’s defeat to Nate Diaz with a choke technique.
“The Lord made [in me] perfect only one thing — my record in professional boxing,” says Floyd one of his catch phrases.
Afterwards, Floyd thanks everyone, including MacGregor, for accepting the fight, and declares that he is ready to box in 8-oz gloves and 4-oz gloves. In fact, Mayweather declares that he is ready to fight with gloves worn by MMA fighters.
Eyes to eyes
The second duel of views has become even more intense. A lot of guards will gather around the fighters, standing almost between them, UFC President Dana White is ready to separate them.
What the fighters are talking about is heard only by people standing nearby. Conor's microphone doesn't work.He later announced this as a trick for Mayweather and Showtime.
“After August 26, they will not be able to do anything. Now they can try to give out these little tricks, do what they want. But on August 26th this man will be unconscious. He is too small. He is too fragile. What else can I say? ”Announced MacGregor after the event.
Already today, Macwegor and MacGregor will meet at a press conference in Canada. Tomorrow - in New York, the day after tomorrow - in London. Madness continues.
