Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather met face to face on Tuesday, July 11, for the first stop on their promotional press tour this week. The UFC fighter and the boxer did plenty of trash talking to get people amped up for their upcoming bout, taking place on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
McGregor wore a pinstripe suit to the press event while Mayweather wore a hooded sweatshirt with his company logo (TMT) that represented the American flag with white stars on a blue sleeve on one arm and red and white stripes on the other. What some people may not have realized was that the pinstripes on McGregor’s suit were actually made up of the words “f— you.” Look closely at the photos below.
The press conference was filled with enough trash talk to last the rest of the month, though the guys will most definitely have more to say to each other throughout the week. They will visit Toronto, Canada, New York City, and London before wrapping up the tour.
“On August 26, this man will be unconscious, he’s too small, he’s too frail. I will come out and paint many pictures. I can fight in my styles. I can dazzle him. He will be unconscious inside four rounds. He’s not experienced this. I don’t fear him. This is a limited set of rules that makes this half a fight,” McGregor taunted.
“He can be more famous… I always chose fortune over fame. You have a lot of people on social media with 20 million followers, but they may not have $20,000 in the bank,” Mayweather retorted, telling McGregor he’d be “waving a white flag” come August 26.
