Both fighters have now tipped a knockout finish to the bout between arguably one of the greatest boxers of all time and the explosive UFC champion.

Speaking to reporters at a media conference at his gym in Las Vegas, Mayweather said: “Expect excitement. He’s gonna talk trash, I’m gonna talk trash, there’s gonna be a lot of blood, sweat and tears.

The only reason I maybe give him two rounds is because in this game the referee stops me from pounding his head into the canvas. And he has 10 seconds to recover. That’s the only reason he might get to the second round.”

McGregor explained even further as to why he’s going to have an upper hand over Mayweather when the two combat stars meet in two weeks.

Floyd Mayweather bout with Manny Pacquiao in 2014 was made available for £24.95 on Sky Sports Box office and it’s expected that the price for this year Boxing will surpass that figure.

The McGregor will be making his Fight debut in a bigger fashion of any other Boxer in history. The PPV projections for this Boxing are right up there with the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight that took place in 2015. In fact, experts project that this Boxing could earn about 78 million dollars, compared to the 89 million dollars of the Mayweather v Pacquiao fight Match

Organisers at the Hillfields nightlife hotspot say: “It’s the boxing match of the millennium, it’s the fight the whole world will be watching.

“Don’t miss out watching it on the biggest screen in the city.”

The Irishman currently holds the UFC’s lightweight title which he won by stopping Eddie Alvarez in the second round last November.

Now 40, Mayweather announced he was coming out of retirement earlier this year in order to face McGregor who is 12 years his junior.

The Dubliner agreed to a deal with UFC president Dana White last month to allow him to fight Mayweather in a boxing match.

When is Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor live stream details, undercard, purse and odds for Las Vegas Boxing

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor press tour is officially underway after starting Tuesday in Los Angeles. It heads to Toronto, Canada on Wednesday and was scheduled to start at 6 p.m. ET. The beginning of the press conference was delayed, with Showtime saying fans were still streaming inside to watch it.

Coverage of the event will be streamed live on YouTube via Showtime, as well as by the UFC. Television coverage will be provided by Fox Sports 2 and the event will also be streamed on the Fox Sports GO App.

More importantly, though, are questions about the formats of the remaining press conferences. In the world of mixed martial arts, McGregor turned them into spectacles with quick retorts to claims and comments made by other fighters. In Los Angeles, he didn’t have that opportunity.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor press conference in Los Angeles leave you feeling unsatisfied? Disappointed? Underwhelmed? Well there are three more “World Tour” pressers to go, so hopefully we see a reduction in old people making boring speeches, Dana White trying to shatter eardrums with his McGregor introductions, more back-and-forth between Mayweather and McGregor, questions taken from media and/or fans, and for better trash-talk to be had by both men!

Press conference number two takes place at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Wednesday, July 12th. You can either watch it on television on Fox Sports 2 at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT, or if you like your press conferences uncensored, watch the free live stream at the top of the page at 5:30 PM ET/2:30 PM PT.

Instead the presser opened with lengthy speeches from boxing promoters in front of an impatient crowd. When McGregor interrupted Mayweather’s turn for a speech, his microphone was cut.

The two faced off on stage and adopted different approaches. McGregor was playful, talking and moving. Mayweather stayed still and stony-faced as the mind games began.

https://blogs-images.forbes.com/alexkay/files/2017/06/comp_boxing1.jpg

Unfortunately this was a boxing press conference, so unlike UFC events where president Dana White immediately asks for questions, we were forced to wait for the suits to make long-winded statements. Fittingly, they were booed.

But the crowd exploded as White introduced McGregor — and the two division champ immediately targeted Mayweather’s dress sense.

Mayweather wasn’t the only one who may have regretted their wardrobe choice. TV presenter Karyn Bryant was caught out when the live feed of the press conference Fox Sports was carrying suddenly cut out.

It didn’t stop McGregor from shining in the moment or Mayweather from stepping out of character a bit to play showman for the Staples Center crowd. But the highlight of the day was likely the banter between McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Sr., who crashed the media Q&A portion of the Irishman’s day

The Crumlin brawler donned an expletive-laden suit at the Staples Center last night and will surely have more tricks up his sleeve tonight as he tries to antagonise and psych out the undefeated Mayweather ahead of their August 26 bout.

McGregor has vowed to knock Floyd Mayweather out inside four rounds when the pair meet in a Las Vegas boxing match next month.

McGregor has never boxed as an amateur or professionally but will face undefeated former multiple world champion Mayweather at the T-Mobile Arena on August 26 under normal boxing rules.

However, the 28-year-old Dubliner is confident he can achieve something which proved beyond the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Saul Alvarez and Oscar de la Hoya and beat the American.

Today’s event streams LIVE from inside Sony Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at 5:30 p.m. ET in the embedded video above, though if it’s anything like yesterday’s “shit show,” it may take some time (and a few musical numbers) before our headliners take the stage.

McGregor kept up with the barbs. “I don’t fear him, I don’t fear his limited set,” McGregor added. “This isn’t a true fight. If this was a true fight, it wouldn’t take one round.”

Despite being promoted as a press conference, there weren’t any opportunities for the media to ask the fighters questions.

Instead, they both spoke for about 10 minutes each and the format played into Mayweather’s favour as the usual back-and-forth which McGregor thrives in was limited.

The talkative two will continue their promotional duties tomorrow afternoon (July 14) in Brooklyn, New York, then wrap things up at London’s SSE Arena Wembley on Friday. Each event will include fighter staredowns (see yesterday’s here) and individual media scrums.

Floyd Mayweather fought Manny Pacquiao in May 2015, the pay-per-view pricing was $89.95 for standard definition (SD) and $99.95 for high definition (HD). According to Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times, it’ll be the same pricing system for Mayweather’s August 26th showdown with Conor McGregor.

Fight night may be fast approaching. But for Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, the time for talking is far from over.

The unbeaten American boxer and Irish UFC star will collide in Las Vegas on August 26 in a much-anticipated and money-spinning showdown.

With both fighters brash, outspoken, and unfailingly confident, the build-up promises to be explosive. Ahead of a week of pre-fight press conferences, Sportsmail answers all the key questions.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will hold a series of press conferences across the United States and in Britain to promote their historic fight.

Mayweather made about $220 million from his fight with Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2015. Mayweather shared on social media a photo of a $100 million check — his guaranteed purse from the fight — which did not have taxes deducted from it. Sources confirmed at the time that the check was genuine.

Mayweather is expected to make a similar amount for the McGregor fight.

The petition also asks to reduce the penalty Mayweather received from not paying all of his taxes for the year.

https://www.thebitbag.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Conor.jpg

The failure-to-pay penalty is typically 0.5 percent of the owed taxes for each month, according to the IRS website. Mayweather’s 2015 taxes are currently 15 months past due, which would equal a 7.5 percent charge on top of what is owed.

Mayweather, 40, has earned approximately $700 million in his 49-fight professional career, according to a Forbes magazine estimate.

The publicity tour starts in Los Angeles tomorrow, before moving to Toronto and New York, finally concluding at Wembley Stadium in London on Friday.

All press conferences are open to the public free of charge, but the limited number of tickets will likely be scooped up within seconds.

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor Live Stream

Tickets are handed out on a first-come, first-served basis with a maximum of four available per customer.

Mayweather, 40, is coming out of retirement for the second time to face UFC champion McGregor in Las Vegas on August 26.

The fight is expected to generate a staggering £500million, making it the most expensive contest in boxing history.

Floyd Mayweather says he can’t pay off his 2015 tax liability until after he gets money from his Aug. 26 fight against Conor McGregor.

The boxer filed a Tax Court petition on July 5 that asks the IRS to allow him a reprieve until the fight.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao did 4.4 million buys and satisfied few of the customers with the quality of their fight. With the same pricing structure in place for Mayweather vs. McGregor, will the buyrate exceed the seemingly unexceedable (this isn’t a word, but it should be) record-shattering numbers from two years ago? We’ll soon find out.

Mind you, these numbers could go higher after the promotional world tour is finished. Mayweather and McGregor will embark on a four-city tour that begins on Tuesday in Los Angeles at the Staples Center. The tour will also go to Toronto, New York, and London. Anyone who is familiar with McGregor’s gift of gab and elite-level trash talking knows he has the ability to raise interest in anything he does.

This fight, while already popular, will be no different.

The 40-year-old American rarely allows filming of his sparring sessions, so only snippets of footage have emerged from his ‘Doghouse’ gym in Las Vegas. But ‘Money’ rarely strays from his fighting weight and he has been sharing the ring with the likes of American prospect Devin Haney ahead of fight night.

The press conferences will be streamed live on Showtime Sports YouTube Channel, Showtime Boxing Facebook Page, CBSSports.com, UFC.com And UFC Fight Pass. With the fight only six weeks away, expect the hype train to be shifted into high gear.

McGregor, the current UFC lightweight champion, will be making his professional boxing debut against all-time great Mayweather, who himself is coming out of retirement for the fight.

Though the contest itself is all but guaranteed to be a mismatch, the pre-fight build-up looks as though it will be entertaining given both fighters’ proclivity for mental warfare.

There have been what feels like years of speculation about the fight, with much name-calling on both sides. But the two fighters have announced that it is indeed, on.

Yes, that’s right, a boxer with a 49-0 record facing a man who has never taken part in a professional boxing fight.

The price has not been decided, though it is expected to be at or near the $99.95 charged for Mayweather’s 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao that drew a record 4.4 million pay-per-view buys.

“This is really an unprecedented event,” said Stephen Espinoza, who heads Showtime Sports. “Really we haven’t seen anything in modern history that resembles it, it’s impossible to predict how many sales this will do.”

You’re an MMA Punchole. For the past year, while other so-called experts debunked, dismissed, and derailed a proposed super fight between boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and UFC champion Conor McGregor, you have intelligently articulated the numerous reasons, live and in public, if you will, why the fight makes sense for all the parties involved.

LA’s Staples Center has described the first press conference as “a star-studded event that will feature a live performance and special guests”.

Brett Yormark, the CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, has spent recent years building a strong boxing presence at Barclays Center and sees nothing but benefits to hosting the Mayweather-McGregor presser.

“I think it’s terrific for the sport of boxing,” Yormark said. “I’m a purist, but I’m also a marketing guy. My son is 12 years old and all his friends are talking about the fight and they’re UFC fans. This is bringing a much younger audience into boxing that hasn’t supported boxing over the last couple of years.”

McGregor, the current UFC lightweight champion, will have his first professional boxing match against the 49-0 Mayweather, who has ended his retirement to headline at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.

This is a big month because we’re showcasing both sports for the first time there,” Yormark said. “It makes sense for us to continue what we’ve done at Barclays Center and continue out there at NYCB Live. We’ll have two or three big boxing events out there a year and one or UFC events.”

Mayweather vs McGregor fight Conor McGregor shows off training for Floyd Mayweather bout

Fans who were expecting Floyd Mayweather to look significantly diminished, out of shape, or somehow otherwise unready for a fight with Conor McGregor probably didn’t take much heart from recently released footage of the boxing all-time great hitting the bag in the gym. Mayweather showed off his fast hands and slick movement, as he prepares to Mayweather vs McGregor fight  the fight McGregor on August 26th in Las Vegas Nevada.

But fear not, McGregor fans… or at least fear less. “The Notorious” Irishman has been putting his own time in, and released some footage of a recent training session on Instagram.

And of course, with footage of both men now out making the rounds, there’s some serious opportunities for a side by side comparison.

Expect a lot more footage, mini-docs, features, and breakdowns for comparison over the next few months, as promotion and excitement for the event kicks into high gear. And, of course, stick to Bloody Elbow for more news and updates.

20-year-old amateur boxing sensation Tiernan Bradley, who is one of four carefully selected sparring partners for Conor McGregor’s training camp against Floyd Mayweather Jr., has nothing but praise for the UFC lightweight champion.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Peter Carroll of MMA Fighting, the Commonwealth silver medalist complimented McGregor’s natural boxing ability and ‘unbreakable’ will.

“Conor is a very good boxer,” Bradley said. He doesn’t move like any other boxer. He’s powerful, fast and light on his feet… He’s very good at getting in and out and connecting. He’s so quick on his feet it’s very hard to judge the distance with him. Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight 2017 live online ppv channels .

McGregor, 28, was mocked for the training footage he recently uploaded to social media, with fans claiming that he stands no chance against boxing’s pound-for-pound No. 1.

Bradley, however, says ‘The Notorious’s’ confidence is ‘through the roof’ and expects the SBG Ireland product to give ‘Money’ a tough fight.

“He didn’t say anything specifically about the fight, but you get an unreal sense of confidence from that guy. This was the first time I met him. The way he walks, the way he talks, you can’t help but notice his self belief. It just oozes out of him.”

“Looking at Conor yesterday,” Bradley said, “I know he’ll give Floyd a hard fight. This will not be a walkover. I really think whoever puts more into their camp will win it. I know that Conor is putting in the work and that his confidence is through the roof. He’s going to be ready when fight night comes around.”

Mayweather vs McGregor live streaming , which is on track to being the biggest fight in combat sports history, takes place next month, August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“He’s so fast and unpredictable — that’s a very dangerous combination. I don’t think Mayweather has ever boxed anyone like that.”

He added: “It’s very different to any style I’ve seen over the years. He has this strange style and he can keep going at a serious pace for 12 rounds. He’s on his toes and he’s constantly keeping you guessing.

“My biggest takeaway from the rounds was the pace that we fought at and that he seemed unbreakable. I found it very hard to figure him out.”

Bradley, who has been brought in specifically to help emulate Mayweather’s style, said ‘The Notorious’ gave him a ‘black eye’ and lifted him off his feet with a crushing right uppercut.

“I’ve got a black eye at the moment and I got that from him when he was wearing 16-ounce gloves,”he said.

“I don’t know if you’ve seen the photo that he uploaded onto his Instagram after our session. People are talking about his left hand and whether the power will be there with 10-ounce gloves — he lifted me off my feet with a right uppercut in 16 (ounce gloves)!

“That shot came out of nowhere. It was so fast and powerful. I can tell you now that those kinds of shots would drop boxers, and that was his right hand. He will definitely keep his stopping power with 10-ounce gloves on.” Mayweather vs McGregor fight live streaming
