McGregor wears "f*** you" suit to Mayweather conference

What makes McGregor unsafe in any fight, including one with heavier gloves, is that death-touch he has in his left hand.

The fight is one of the most hotly anticipated of modern times, so it's fair to say the promotion received a bit of attention - some of which has been rather humorous.

"I'm absolutely honored to be here before you", McGregor said at the beginning of Tuesday's news conference.

As a contest for purists, Mayweather-McGregor doesn't pass muster.

Mayweather told the 20,000-strong crowd at the press conference in LA: 'I don't care if it's a ring or it's an octagon, I will kick ass.

Back to Tuesday, both men promised a knockout - claims that contain the sulphurous odor of electioneering.

Anyway, Mayweather might have to administer the fade, taper, and line up for the culture on August 26 when the fight goes down at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. "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. Keen observers would notice that the lines on McGregor's suit spelled out a certain two-word insult that most assume, and rightly so, to be directed at Mayweather.

The launch of the promotional tour for the upcoming Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor boxing match featured a unique fashion statement.

The 40-year-old Mayweather has been coaxed out of his latest retirement for the colossal payday coming from this unique matchup.

The pay-per-view price for August's fight has been set at $89.95, which isn't cheap. "He can't afford a suit anymore!" He is [expletive]. There is no other way about it.

McGregor also mocked Mayweather about his attire and the recent rumours that the American only took the fight because of financial trouble: "He's in a. track suit", McGregor said. "Or two years ago", Mayweather said.

The undefeated boxer nicknamed "Money" owes $22.2 million in taxes from 2015, according to a notice of a federal tax lien filed by the IRS. The document was filed with county officials in Las Vegas in April.

His tax attorney did not immediately return a request seeking comment.
