After the event, Mayweather was asked by TMZ if he took offense to the remark. "You can't even read!". Hell no! You f*cking weasel!

Both McGregor and Mayweather kicked off a four-city, three-country global press tour, the first of which took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

McGregor and Mayweather will face off for the third time this week in NY tonight What time is it on?

After going non-stop for six minutes, McGregor waved off attempts for him to wrap it up - "I'm not getting off this mic!"

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Mayweather (49-0 boxing) will fight on August 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in a pay-per-view event that is expected to be the most lucrative prize fight of all time. Addressing the press McGregor said, "He's in a ******* tracksuit" and added, He can't even afford a suit anymore.

And if McGregor, who made his name cage fighting rather than boxing, won the first instalment on points, he took the second by a knock-out.

During the first press conference, Mayweather was making a speech when he stopped and showed off some shadow-boxing moves in front of McGregor. "I've known you for 21 years".

Calvillo was one of the sport's top prospects as an amateur, as she went 5-1 with three finishes from 2012 to 2014. Ticket prices for the match, live at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas, range from $347 for a Pre-fight Hospitality Row to a $104,475 big baller ticket in the double A section at ring side.

"Fans all around the world demanded this fight", said Mayweather, expecting to earn more than $100 million for the August fight.

This time with a working microphone in his hand, McGregor responded in kind. "But think the press conference is going to be better than fight itself".

"No f*cking problem. Send the contract".

Things got interesting when Mayweather got hold of an Irish flag. I played it calm, cool, didn't say nothing, let him do his talking.
