Today’s event streams LIVE from Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., at 5 p.m. ET in the embedded video above. FYI: It will likely start later than advertised so be sure to hang tight — it will be well worth the wait!
Mayweather’s far grander entrance to having to go first to having his microphone cut off, it was hardly a fair wrap for the UFC star.
It was never going to be with Mayweather running the operation.
McGregor admits he really didn’t know what to expect but you can be sure he will be better prepared for round two.

The undefeated American and the UFC star will lock horns in the boxing ring on August 26, but before their Las Vegas date of destiny comes around, there is plenty of hype to be built up.
Tuesday night’s event at the Staples Center is the first of a four-city whistle stop tour, which sees the pair undergo promotional duties in LA, Toronto and New York and finally Wembley Arena, when the pair touch down in London on Friday.
This first meeting between the two fast-talking rivals was full of talking points and you can recap all of the action below.
Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather boxing match on August 26th? Well, it’s about to. Despite reports that McGregor and Mayweather would hold their first press conference in London, it appears that they will go face-to-face in Los Angeles first. On July 11th at the Staples Center, to be exact. Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor live Stream
This is all fake news. First of all, [McGregor] hasn’t fought an amateur [boxing] fight to my knowledge. I’ve checked around and I’ve been around the game for a long time. He hasn’t had any experience as an amateur or a professional. How does any commission, in Vegas or anywhere, give him a license to fight a guy like Mayweather, who is one of the icon guys of our era?”
Manny Pacquiao, who returns Saturday to face Jeff Horn in Australia, set the combat sports PPV buy record at an astounding 4.6 million in 2015 against Mayweather. But even “PacMan” said he isn’t willing to waste his time watching such a sideshow event, in which almost no one is willing to give McGregor, 28, a chance at even being competitive against the 40-year-old Mayweather.
“The real fight and the best fight is Golovkin versus Canelo,” Pacquiao told Yahoo Sports. “The best versus the best. That’s the fight I will be watching.
Promoted by Mayweather Promotions, this event is complimentary and open to the public for fans to see the first-ever face-to-face meeting between Mayweather and McGregor. This will be a star-studded event that will feature a live performance and special guests. We invite all fans to come out and be a part of history.”
“If you want to watch a true fight, a true boxing fight, like a classic fight, welcome to Sept. 16,” Golovkin said. “If you want to watch a show — like, I don’t know, a business show, a comedy show — Floyd is Floyd. Conor, he is a very good fighter, but he’s not a boxer.”
The only fighter who seems to have given McGregor a chance is former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, an English boxer of Irish descent, who is known for his flamboyant takes.
“I think Conor McGregor will knock him out in the first 35 seconds like he did to Jose Aldo, to be honest,” Fury told iFL TV. “I think McGregor will do him inside one round. It will be good for boxing, won’t it? It will be great for boxing. It will be great for the real people of the world.”
