The best of Mayweather, McGregor world media tour

The best of Mayweather, McGregor world media tour

The Mixed Martial Arts supremo was in a confident and cheerful mood at Wembley Arena on Friday evening, on the last leg of the World Press Tour for their fight.

"Mayweather and McGregor are great at promoting and self-promoting".

With his fight against Floyd Mayweather, taking on an opponent from another sport, McGregor has already begun to emulate the plot of the Rocky film franchise.

McGregor declared after the tour that he had won 3 press conferences to Floyd's one and that's only if you're being nice.

Mayweather will put his flawless 49-0 boxing record on the line against UFC star McGregor in Las Vegas on August 26. It was clear that the Toronto, New York and London crowd drew more people that supported McGregor. If the fight is entertaining enough, the potential money for a rematch could be huge, and both fighters are never shy about their business acumen and net worths.

"You guys know I've been doing this over 20 years", Mayweather said.

Mayweather is no stranger to WWE.

McConnell defers consideration of Senate health care bill due to McCain's absence
McCain's office in a statement said he is doing well after undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot from his eye on Friday. A spokesman for McConnell did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the impact of McCain's absence.

The IRS still has Floyd Mayweather Jr. on the hook for $7.2 million in taxes from 2010, according to records that show a lien as unresolved for the year he fought Shane Mosley. Currently, Mayweather is tied with Rocky Marciano at 49-0. That list included shoe-in Hall-of-Famers which relatively disproves the aforementioned allegations.

McGregor, on the other hand, has a classic rags-to-riches story. The Dubliner is considering a fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov - in Russian Federation - for his next UFC bout.

UFC and Showtime PPV have partnered together to bring combat action fans a fight for the ages.

McGregor has an inch height edge over the American, but the Irishman is seen as a big underdog in the fight. But slim doesn't mean zero chance here.

Before the bout was event made official, Mayweather opened up as a staggering -2500 favorite. The stream will cost $99.95 on Pay-Per-View and tickets to be there in person start at $500.

And who else can set it up better than Triple H, the WWE COO and head of talent relations? That being said, WWE stands to gain a lot too, a testament to how HHH has adjusted to the life outside the ring.
