The hype surrounding the controversial fight between world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and UFC champion Conor McGregor kicked up a gear last night in Los Angeles. 

Conor McGregor promised his fans to knock out Mayweather within four rounds. The pair appeared in front of thousands of fans at news conference in LA – the first of four events called to promote the Las Vegas fight. 


Mayweather, widely considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all time, undefeated as a professional and a five-division world champion, sat in front of thousands of fans, as Conor continued to throw insults towards him. 

“He’s f#*%@ wearing a tracksuit, he cant even a afford a suit anymore” McGregor said 

“His little legs, his little core, little head, i’m gonna knock him out inside four rounds, mark my words” said McGregor 

Floyd Mayweather got up from his chair as it was his turn to speak. 

“Im an old man”

“Im not even the same man i was 20 years ago” 

“Im not the same fighter i was 10 years ago, im not the same fighter i was 5 years ago, i’m not the same fighter i was 2 years ago BUT I’VE GOT ENOUGH TO BEAT YOU” said Floyd Mayweather 

The two will continue with further promotional events in Toronto, Canada on Wednesday, Brooklyn, New York on Thursday and London on Friday.
