Floyd Mayweather Has A Huge Conor McGregor Painting In His Beverley Hills Mansion
The path to Mayweather vs. McGregor was laden with disrespectful trash talk. Ranging from insults about heritage, to the bitch-like nature of high-profile friends, the average onlooker would be forgiven for thinking the pair had some serious beef between them.
The 3-stage press tour in the lead-up to the much-anticipated bout was looked upon by thousands of excited onlookers. Many cheers and boos rang out in exchange between the passionate fans all backing their preferred fighter.
Both men captivated us with their showmanship, charisma and fanfare which added a great deal of depth to the fight which smashed a number of records and smashed boundaries between the two fighting codes of MMA and boxing.
But once the two got in the ring, as many predicted, all the fighting words turned to action as the two set to gain the upper hand in the first fight of its kind to hit the big stage. We saw a Mayweather who had always laughed off McGregor’s potential in the square circle suddenly turn serious when a few of the Irishman’s jabs landed.
What was touted to either be over quickly or go the full distance proved to be neither as Mayweather called on all his experience to pick off the rapidly tiring ‘Notorious’. When the fight was stopped, McGregor called to be allowed the dignity of being knocked out properly.
After the fight, the respect and admiration between the two were on show. They embraced and praised each other openly in the post-fight conferences and all the trash-talk in the lead up was forgiven and forgotten in a heartbeat.
Now Mayweather has surprised many by adorning his newly-purchased Beverly Hills mansion with a two-piece mural showcasing both himself and McGregor. The piece has been seen by fans around the world as a great mark of respect for Mayweather have his nemesis’ likeness on display in his home. In contrast, some see the masterpiece as disrespectful as Mayweather flexes in front of McGregor whom he soundly beat in the contest.
