Conor McGregor taunts Floyd Mayweather with 'insult suit'

Conor McGregor taunts Floyd Mayweather with 'insult suit'

Even though McGregor has never had a professional boxing match, he said he would knockout the 40-year-old Mayweather in four rounds when they meet on August 26th.

A close-up of the Dublin fighter's suit revealed "f*** you" written along the immaculate pinstripes. As is obvious, McGregor is not subtle.

Los Angeles was the first time the two had come face-to-face, and the first stop on the four-part World Tour didn't disappoint as Mayweather and McGregor got the promotional side of the game underway in style. The press conference will occur on the biggest cross-mixed fight in history at the Budweiser stage in the heart of Toronto.

UFC President Dana White has said there was interest from Donald Trump in attending the Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor super fight.

"We know "Mr Tap Out" likes to quit and you will wave that white flag", added Mayweather.

"Yeah, they took the mic off", McGregor said.

McGregor is well-known for his confidence -bordering on arrogance- and running his mouth, but Tuesday's show was a new level of insult handed out to his opponent. Does Conor have another expletive-laden suit in his wardrobe? The pound for pound best boxer of this generation, with a 49-0 record stumbled over his words and failed to land a verbal knock out during his speech.




The racial undertones of the statement are obvious - with the internet immediately seizing on it, saying McGregor had gone too far. Showtime will air the pay-per-view bout for about $90.

McGregor seemed to draw attention to his suit too - by pointing out Mayweather was in a tracksuit.

'His little legs, his little core, his little head, I am going to knock him out inside four rounds, mark my words, ' said the Irishman.

"I've watched a lot of Conor McGregor's press conferences, not just for the comical factor I guess, but more mentally he is so strong".

"The 0 has got to go", McGregor declared, referring to Mayweather's ideal 49-0 record.

Anyway, Mayweather might have to administer the fade, taper, and line up for the culture on August 26 when the fight goes down at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena.
