Conor McGregor has been one of the most outspoken sportspersons in recent years and with one of the most awaited events, which involves him and Floyd Mayweather, it was going to be an interesting build up to the match. The Ireland-born is going to box Floyd Mayweather in a bout on August 26 in Las Vegas and their press tour began on Wednesday.
But, in an interesting move, instead of trash talking a lot, McGregor decided to remain subtle but still win the talk. The UFC champion exchanged verbals with Mayweather but the former was wearing a suit that had pinstripes containing the words ‘F*** You’ throughout the press call.
Adressing the press McGregor said, “He’s in a fu**ing tracksuit” and added, He can’t even afford a suit anymore. The Royces are 2012 outside. He is fu**ed. There’s no other way about it. His little legs, his little core, his little head. I’m going to knock him out inside four rounds mark my words.”
A stoic Floyd Mayweather did not look perturbed and said,”I still got it. Twenty-one is the number. That’s how long I’ve been kicking a**.
He further added, “I don’t give a f*** if it’s a ring or an octagon, put me in there and I’m going to kick a**. You line them up, I knock them out like bowling pins. On August 26 I’m going to knock this b**** out too.”, Mayweather concluded.
