Conor McGregor to Mayweather: 'Dance for Me, Boy'

Comment - Floyd Mayweather dragged our flag through the gutter and no one batted an eyelid Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor New York press conference LIVE: Sparks to fly again
Jerome Frank | 14 July, 2017, 00:43

Asked specifically if he was upset with McGregor over the comments, Mayweather told TMZ that he was not. "You can't even read". While the Toronto crowd was clearly against him, Mayweather was quick to remind his opponent, "The f-- fans can't fight for you".

Both McGregor and Mayweather kicked off a four-city, three-country worldwide press tour, the first of which took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

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. "The way things are looking and the way I keep working, as long as I stay injury free and healthy and keep getting these wins, I'm thinking next year we can have that battle on International Fight Week".

Conor McGregor continued his verbal bombardment of boxer Floyd Mayweather as the pair appeared together on the second leg of their whirlwind world tour on Wednesday night. The Washington Post notes that McGregor then said, "Dance for me, sir!".

The next stop for the circus is NY on today before the pair take to London's Wembley Arena on Friday, with McGregor pretty much guaranteed to put on a show for the crowd much closer to home.

Everyone in McGregor's way got a taste - Showtime, Mayweather's crew, the fighter and his father. "I'm going to knock him out inside four rounds, mark my words". Granted, fighters are professionals and a pre-fight skirmish would put the entire fight itself at risk, but men like McGregor and Diaz have rarely played by any set of rules they've been faced with. "I make money. You know my middle name b-ch".

"We not talking bout being at the top 1, 2, 3, 4 years.[expletive] 21 years". "But think the press conference is going to be better than fight itself".

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

"No f-king problem. Send the contract, kid".

"You do something with that flag, I'll f-k you up", McGregor said.

"The biggest fight in the history of fighting, and of course, they had to come to the greatest city in the world to do a press conference".
