Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather held the first press conference in their press tour to promote their mega-hyped August 26 boxing match in Vegas. If the fight is half as good as the first presser, it may be worth the $100 PPV price tag.
McGregor showed up decked out in an expensive suit, and mocked Mayweather for wearing a track suit to the big event. He jokingly referenced Mayweather’s recently public IRS troubles, saying he may not have the cash to buy one.
“He can’t even afford a suit anymore.”

In his turn at the podium, Mayweather offered McGregor a choice, leave on your face or on your back. He added some colorful expletives.

There was also no shortage of mean mugging and face-to-face trash talking, mostly dominated by McGregor’s legendary mouth. He may lose the fight, but he definitely “won” the presser.

Oh, and those aren’t pinstripes on McGregor’s suit. Now that is how you troll, kids.
