The Best Way to See All of the Mayweather vs McGregor Press Tour
If you’re anything like me, you’re a diehard mixed martial arts fan who is chomping at the bit to see more content related to upcoming fights. Just about everyone in the combat sports sphere is waiting with bated breath to see veteran boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and mixed martial arts superstar and UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor duke it out inside the boxing ring. While the pay per view price may cause some people to turn away, the press tour is sure to reel them right back in.
While you might be one of the fans expecting Mayweather to get in the ring and work his defensive boxing, cruising his way to victory while hitting McGregor with counter punches for a cool twelve rounds, you’re sure to get your money’s worth if you tune in the for the press conferences in the lead-up to the fight.
Given that McGregor has become incredibly well known for his press conference antics, you can be sure the pressers during the world tour are going to be insane. He’s already thrown water bottles and cans at Nate Diaz across a packed auditorium, stolen former featherweight champion Jose Aldo’s belt from right in front of him and smack talked a slew of fighters in divisions above and below his own.
Put simply, McGregor is sure to bring the fire when he and Mayweather are sitting opposite each other, and you can be certain that he will be touching on some painful points for his pugilist foe.
