Mayweather replied: "You're right".
Mayweather and McGregor will have their second press conference later today from Toronto, Canada as it is the second stop on a four-city, three-country world tour to help promote their August 26 boxing fight. The pay-per-view event, scheduled for August 26, will air on Showtime and is expected to generate hundreds of millions of dollars. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.
McGregor, however, has never had a boxing match, although he is 21-3 in MMA and is the reigning UFC Lightweight champion.
McGregor, 28, was first to address the gathering of media and 11,000 fans.
"I am guaranteeing you this". McGregor will be making his boxing debut, while Mayweather will look to improve upon his flawless 49-0 record in the ring.
Shortly after Mayweather called it quits, a feud between himself and Conor McGregor, the new face of combat sports, was born.More news: Jailed Chinese Nobel laureate's condition life threatening, says hospital

The contrasts between the two was immediately apparent as McGregor, wearing a navy pinstriped suit and tie, danced around the stage smiling while Mayweather, wearing a track suit with American flag details, looked on stonefaced.
T-Mobile Arena packs in approximately 20,000 fans so the ticket sales for this event will likely shatter all previous records including the one held by Mayweather for his 2015 bout against Manny Pacquiao. Conor McGregor's suit clothing line has become one of the highlights of the fighter's arsenal, which he uses to put pressure on his opponents. "There's no other way about it".
"His little legs, little core, little head, I'm going to knock him out inside four rounds, mark my words", said McGregor. I'm not the same fighter as I was years ago, but I got enough to beat you.
According to a poll on the Showtime Boxing Twitter account, 54 percent of the voters chose McGregor as the victor of Day 1 of the media tour. The pictures of the suit are now viral on social media with people talking about the detailing on it. Mayweather is a heavy betting favorite, and barring an unforeseen series of events, he should defeat the UFC star easily. "I'm an old man".
Mayweather Sr responded: 'If you do, then I'm going to knock the f*** out of you'.
