London is the fourth and final stop of the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor World Press Tour. The first three press conferences have featured plenty of fireworks between the two superstars. Yesterday’s conference in New York, featured intense staredowns, almost-fights, one-dollar bill showers and plenty of insults.
One of McGregor’s favorite jokes has been related to Floyd Mayweather’s delay in paying his taxes. Yesterday, Mayweather pulled out a backpack filled with money and tossed it into the air. McGregor picked up a bill, grabbed the microphone and said: “They’re all (expletive) ones!” During this the crowd chanted, “pay your taxes.”
