The Press Band Wagon is rolling with the Conor McGregor Vs Floyd Maywether Fight due for
26 August 2017
Mayweather takes the stage after a short intro from Leonard Ellerbee and, wow … just wow. He leads the crowd in a back-and-forth chant of his “Hard word, dedication” mantra – and then we’re off to the races: “You line ‘em up and I knock ‘em down. On August 26, I’m gonna knock this bitch out too.”
McGregor fires back from the side: “You haven’t knocked anyone out in about 20 years.”
Floyd is stalking back and forth across the stage like a revivalist preacher:
“Dance for me, boy!” cries McGregor, allowing scorekeepers at home to check racially charged rhetoric on their bingo cards. Dance for me, son!”
“Give me that backpack!” Floyd shouts to an assistant, before pulling out a $100m check from his last fight.
Adds Mayweather: “He look good for for a seven-figure fighter, he look good for an eight-figure fighter. But mother-fucker, I’m a nine figure fighter. This bitch made three million dollars his last fight. But we know that’s training camp money for me.”
McGregor makes a crack from his chair about how Mayweather should give the money to the tax man, to which Mayweather quickly fires back: “You right, I’m the IRS. I’m gonna tax your ass.”
More from Mayweather, who’s just getting started. “We knew I was the A-side,” he says. “That’s why it says Mayweather first. That’s why this bitch had to come to the boxing ring.
Floyd then took aim at McGregor’s three submission losses, only one in the UFC.
“We know Mr Tapout like to quit and you will,” Mayweather says, eyes narrowing. “You going out on your face or you going out on your back. Which way you want to go? Which way do you wanna go?
McGregor says nothing. A mistake.
“That’s right, be quiet you little bitch.”
This is profane. And the crowd is loving it.
