"I'm going to knock this bitch out", Mayweather said, to boos from the crowd. Before the De La Hoya fight, HBO debuted 24/7, a three week look into the fighter's lives before the actual fight. There was no shortage of excitement outside of the press conference - between all the taunts and the countless "Fuck You" pinstripes on McGregor's suit. It's no secret Triple H is a fan of MMA and every other combat sport. There won't be a physical confrontation between these two outside of the fight. Mayweather made a guaranteed $100 million for his fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015.
"They can try and do all these tricks all they want". Worryingly, Mayweather also claims that 6) he is yet to formulate a game-plan to beat McGregor.
The boxer (40) told his opponent: "I'm an old man - I'm not even the same man I was 20 years ago".
Method of Victory: Mayweather hasn't been in the ring in two years and hasn't produced a knockout since his 2011 win over Victor Ortiz.
However, Mayweather Snr, who was present throughout the bad-tempered press conference, denied that McGregor's comments were racially charged.
Mayweather Sr responded: 'If you do, then I'm going to knock the f*** out of you'. He'll be gassed by the fifth or sixth round.
But Mayweather got his digs in, too.
"He says "I see what happens in my mind and it happens". Canelo Alvarez has moved up to 160 pounds, but both fighters could be in for a huge payday if they ever agreed to a rematch at a lower weight. If he hits you, you go.
McGregor said: "Yeah, they took the mic off".
The live gate that night from the MGM Grand Garden Arena - a smaller venue than the T-Mobile Arena - topped out at more than $72 million. I may say something on Monday, I may say something different on Tuesday, but I will come on record saying I can contradict myself.
