Conor McGregor is hands down a better trash talker than Floyd Mayweather

The international tour to promote Mayweather vs. McGregor, which takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 26, certainly didn’t disappoint.

Mayweather vs. McGregor – fight of the year .


 Mayweather McGregor

The purpose of the media extravaganza was invariably to have McGregor and Mayweather, 28 and 40 respectfully, publicly trash talk each other in order to sell the already highly-publicised fight.
Both men produced great displays of smack talk, much to the delight of their respective set of fans. But there was only one winner of the trash talking competition.The man who came out of the verbal sparring contests victorious was none other than ‘The Notorious’ McGregor.Barring his below-par performance in Brooklyn, McGregor’s trash talk throughout the tour was flawless and effortless.Mayweather’s, on the other hand, was at times forced and very monotonous, a fact many fans picked up on.

Floyd Mayweather is a hypocrite

Floyd Mayweather’s hypocritical side came out during the London leg of the world tour.

During the pre-event press conference, a passionate Mayweather criticised McGregor for comments he deemed racially insensitive and disrespectful to black women.

However, less than an hour after voicing his displeasure at McGregor’s attempt to dismiss the notion of him being a racist, Mayweather used a homophobic slur to taunt the UFC superstar, which resulted in a chorus of boos from the crowd at the SSE Wembley Arena.

The fact ‘Money’ used such a derogatory term, which he fully knows the meaning of, is a testament to his character.

Conor McGregor really believes he can shock the world and KO Floyd Mayweather

Throughout the build-up to Mayweather vs. McGregor being announced, the latter made a series of bold claims about the outcome of the super-fight, which is currently the talk of the entire sporting world.

On multiple occasions, McGregor, Ireland’s first UFC belt holder, has vowed to turn the world upside down by becoming the first man to defeat Mayweather, who has seen off a staggering 49 opponents.

On the face of it, McGregor’s prediction was nothing more than an act to sell the biggest fight of his career.

However, after having the opportunity to discuss the ‘Billion Dollar Fight’ with the Irishman at length and hearing the conviction in his voice, one can’t question the immense belief he has in his boxing skills.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor could shatter the pay-per-view buy record

The turnout for the Mayweather vs. McGregor press tour was nothing short of spectacular.

Over 48,000 fans packed the Staples Center, Budweiser Stage, Barclays Center and SSE Wembley Arena to catch a glimpse of the two biggest names in combat sports. MAYWEATHER FIGHT LIVE PAY PER VIEW Channels

And the pair’s encounters were watched on Youtube by a jaw-dropping 33 million sports fans from all across the globe.

The intrigue in Mayweather vs. McGregor was at fever pitch prior to the international press tour, so much so that it drew attention away from several big fights in boxing and mixed martial arts, including Andre Ward vs. Sergei Kovalev II, Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones II.

That interest multiplied tenfold after the pair’s first face-off, which will go down as one of the most iconic moments in combat sports history.

It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that Mayweather vs. McGregor shatters the PPV buy record set by Mayweather’s 2015 ‘Fight of the Century’ with Manny Pacquiao, which was watched by a staggering 4.4m people.

Conor McGregor has already defeated Floyd Mayweather

No matter the outcome of on August 26 bout, McGregor will be the fight’s real winner.

By getting Mayweather to take the bait and agree to fight him, McGregor has landed a knockout blow which his opponent won’t be able to recover from.

Not only does a fight with the controversial American drastically increase McGregor’s net worth, it raises his already sky-high profile.On top of that, the fact he’s taking on Mayweather at his own game will endear him to many in the boxing world.When you take those all those factors into account, Mayweather very well have inadvertently made McGregor the biggest star in the combat sports world.

Mayweather braces for ‘toe-to-toe’ battle against McGregor

Floyd Mayweather Jr. put up a typically brash front during his four-city tour with Conor McGregor to promote their upcoming boxing match on August 26 in Las Vegas.

The unbeaten American talked trash and exchanged potshots with McGregor, the brash Irishman who made a name for himself as a mixed martial artist before seeking a big money fight against Mayweather.

Mayweather is the odds-on favorite in the bout against McGregor, who is fighting in a boxing match for the very first time in his professional career. In contrast, Mayweather is widely regarded as one of the best fighters in his era, and has put together an immaculate 49-0 win-loss record.

Despite all this, however, Mayweather believes that he is in for a battle against the younger McGregor for several reasons. People can watch Floyd Mayweather fight live online stream online from this website on august 26, 2017 . Live stream of this Mayweather fight live ppv will broadcast from Las vagas united state of America.

“He wants to win bad. He really wants to win bad, extremely bad,” Mayweather said, as quoted by Boxing Scene.

Mayweather noted that his opponents usually take one of two approaches: they either “play it safe,” or “go straight for the kill,” like Marcos Maidana did in May 2014. Much to the shock of pundits, the Argentine had considerable success against Mayweather and the American won a majority decision.

McGregor will most likely approach their fight the way Maidana did, according to Mayweather.

“He’s going to come out and go for the kill,” he predicted. “He’s a heavy hitter, so I’ve got to be cautious.”

“Remember, I’m older, so I can’t move like I used to move,” Mayweather added. “So it’s basically going to be a toe-to-toe battle.”

The 40-year-old Mayweather has not fought since September 2015, when he easily outpointed Andre Berto en route to retirement, before McGregor enticed him to fight again.

McGregor’s gung-ho approach, combined with Mayweather’s age, will make for an exciting fight – at least, said the American.

“I’ve seen it before,” Mayweather said. “When these fighters get upset with me, they come out like they’re going to try and kill me.”

“My job is to do what I do – just keep my composure,” he added.

Despite Mayweather’s efforts to hype up McGregor, the Irishman remains a huge underdog in their bout. Nevertheless, the American continues to warn analysts and fans alike that McGregor “does have a chance.”

To underscore his point, he cited a bout that took place earlier in June, where the underdog who was given very little chance of winning pulled off a truly shocking upset.

“We just saw, a week ago, two weeks ago, a guy who started boxing at 18, a teacher, beat one of the best fighters of all time, which was Manny Pacquiao,” said Mayweather, referring to Jeff Horn’s controversial victory over the “Pacman.”

“So anything can happen in a combat sport.”

“I’m red, f*** Everton!” Conor McGregor filmed showing support for Liverpool ahead of Floyd Mayweather clash

Conor McGregor grew up supporting Manchester United – but appears to have switched sides.

The UFC champion, who takes on Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match next month, was a promising footballer before he chose to concentrate on martial arts.

And he has been filmed declaring, “I’m red, f*** Everton !”

McGregor is currently in Las Vegas preparing to face Mayweather but was in Liverpool earlier this year when he took in the Grand National at Aintree.

He caused a stir by arriving at the famed venue with his jacket open to reveal his bare torso.

McGregor flew into the city by private jet before performing in Mansion nightclub in front of his adoring fans.

He later dropped in on a house party in the city, posting a picture of himself standing on top of a car, proclaiming: “Liverpool we run your entire city.”

Meanwhile, McGregor’s infamous ‘f*** you’ suit is available to buy for £5,000.

The Dubliner hit the headlines when he donned the suit during his and Mayweather’s world tour last week

McGregor’s close friend, David August, has now put the controversial suit up for sale on his online store.

Hardy also shows the vast difference in size between 4-ounce UFC gloves and the 10-ounce ones McGregor will wear on August 26.

Not only will the bigger gloves spread out the impact of punches but they can be used to form a pretty effective shield to fend off blows.

Hardy arrives on the scene around 14:45 and, to our mind, steals the show.

Mayweather v McGregor: Paulie Malignaggi says Conor McGregor can trouble Floyd Mayweather .

Pauli Malignaggi is convinced Conor McGregor can take advantage of chinks in Floyd Mayweather’s armour when the pair clash on August 26.

Two-weight UFC champion McGregor meets ‘Money’ Mayweather in Las Vegas next month in one of the most intriguing and most lucrative boxing contests of modern times.

Malignaggi was drafted into McGregor’s camp as a sparring partner after he was put in touch with the Irishman’s camp through Dean Byrne.

And though the odds are stacked against McGregor, Malignaggi believes the man they call ‘Notorious’ has the capacity to carve out opportunities on fight night.

“I think you’d have to favour Mayweather but Conor has been working on tactics and certain things that should give him moments in the fight and certain moments can become bigger moments,” Malignaggi told Sky Sports News.

“It’s all about capitalising on moments that present themselves on fight night and only Conor can control that. Overall, looking at the big picture of course Mayweather is a big favourite – he’s the guy that has been doing it for a lot longer.

Energy levels could be a factor on August 26, says Malignaggi
Energy levels could be a factor on August 26, says Malignaggi

“But he hasn’t fought in two years which is a long lay-off. I think Conor can exploit the fact that the energy levels of the guy in front of him may not match Conor’s because he has got more youth on his side.

“It’s hard to pick weaknesses in a guy like Floyd Mayweather because he is so good and he is such a complete fighter but Conor is bringing a different style to the table, a different toolbox so to speak. Maybe those tools will work maybe they won’t but we’ll find out on fight night.”

Former two-weight world champion Malignaggi says his sparring sessions with McGregor in Las Vegas have been both rigorous and enjoyable.

“Connor is a competitor through and through,” Malignaggi said.

“When I’m in the ring with him there is a lot of trash-talking, and there’s a lot of theatrics, but I’m that kind of guy too, so it’s been kind of fun.

“It’s to get him in the zone. There’s a lot of showboating that we both have been doing and a lot of cussing, it’s just things you look to do get under each other’s skin.

“He’s a bit awkward but the sparring is also intense, it’s work. It’s work for a very big fight, so obviously the sparring has to be intense, and it was.”

The fighters embarked upon a promotional world tour, touching down in Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and London before next month’s fight. Malignaggi insists the action-packed tour has heightened the anticipation ahead of the August 26 showdown.

“It’s been very animated. I thought it was entertaining,” Malignaggi said.

“For some people it was a bit too much in their face but for me this is how you promote a fight.
