Tyson: McGregor ‘is going to get killed’ boxing Mayweather

Makes Statement

Tyson says McGregor will not be able to beat Mayweather under boxing rules. Tyson said that if it were him in the fight with McGregor, he would allow the Irishman to use kicks and knees in the fight.

McGregor is going to get killed boxing. I got mad because I thought they were going to use MMA rules against boxing because that’s what it’s all about: Can the boxer beat the MMA guy? McConor put his dumb–s in a position where he’s gonna get knocked out because this guy’s been doing this all his life since he was a baby. McConor can’t kick and grab and stuff so he won’t stand much of a chance…McGregor took the biggest sucker rules in the history of boxing.

Mayweather: ‘Not going to be a dull fight’

Makes Statement

Mayweather, who has been spending time training with Anthony Joshua in Vegas, says that he and McGregor are both preparing for the fight in the same way, and fans can expect an exciting battle.

There has been a lot of trash-talkers [through his career], and at the end of the day, he’s not bad. We will rate him number two and I’m number one – he’s got heart… Am I worried about an elbow or knee? I’m going to let the referee do his job, he will be extremely fair but firm. Nevada Commission is about treating everybody fair… He’s a warrior, that’s what I do know about Conor McGregor. He’s going to fight to the end. He’s approaching this fight like I’m approaching this fight. It’s kill or be killed. Believe me when I say this: It’s not going to be a dull fight.

White talks fight to Kimmel

TV Appearance

White appears on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the upcoming fight. Kimmel asks if he thinks Conor has a chance at all to beat Floyd Mayweather.

White:

I do…Floyd Mayweather is going to be 41 years old this year. If there’s a kink in that armour, it has been with southpaws. Conor McGregor is a southpaw, and he hits like a truck. He’s got 12 rounds to land that punch…When he hits people they go, and if he hits Floyd, I think he will hurt him, and when he hurts people he puts them away.

Kimmel:

Is this like a cricket team trying to win the World Series?

White:

No, normally, when boxers fight boxers, there’s a system to it. McGregor will be completely unorthodox. It’s what makes this fight so intriguing.

Alvarez will be in the front row for McGregor-Mayweather

Appearance announcement

Alvarez says that he watched all four of the stops on the McGregor-Mayweather world press tour and has booked a front row ticket to the August 26th clash.

I love fights and when they have this much build-up around them. I’m going to the fight – I’ll be there, front row. A buddy, who sold me his house, got me front row seats. We’ll be there.

On McGregor’s chances:

Conor has about three or four rounds to get this done. Within those [first] four rounds, if you don’t think Conor can knock this guy out, you’re an idiot or you just don’t know fighting because it can very well happen.

On his loss to McGregor:

I never really get annoyed with [that UFC 205 loss] myself. I’ve dealt with it, forgave myself for it and I have moved on.

McGregor nutritionist wants speed over power

Makes Statement

Lockhart, who is working for McGregor in preparation for his fight with Mayweather, says nutritional tweaks are necessary going from one sport to the other, with the prominent change being a reduction in walking around weight.

With an MMA match, wrestling, (jiu-jitsu and) having someone on top of you, weight matters – with wrestling it does have a huge effect. With boxing, I believe speed is key. If I’m bigger than you but can’t hit you, it doesn’t make a whole lot of difference. Not as much grappling, the referee pulls you apart as soon as that does happen. I want to make sure the fighter is lower in weight, the cut is not as big and the reload is not as much…For an MMA fighter to reload, they’ll gain 15, 18 pounds, which gives them that advantage (on fight night). [For] boxing, I want him actually walking in close to weight the week of the fight. Walking in, weighing in and maybe gaining a couple pounds after that.

McGregor-Mayweather betting to surpass Superbowl

Places bet

A sports book manager at Bovada.lv says the McGregor-Mayweather fight is trending to surpass the money laid down on this year’s Superbowl. McGregor’s odds to win have halved since the fight was announced, though Mayweather still remains the bookie’s favourite.

We knew this fight would be big, potentially even bigger than the Super Bowl, but now we are almost certain it will be. The recent trash talking and promotional tour is only encouraging bets and at this rate we cannot even imagine how much we will take on it. One thing is for sure though, we will need Mayweather huge. A McGregor early round KO as he promised would be a potential disaster and is partly a reason we are giving a great price on Mayweather at the moment.

Nelson: Age could catch up with Mayweather

Makes Statement

Former world cruiser-weight champion, Johnny Nelson, says Mayweather’s age could catch up with him against a ‘hungry’ McGregor.

Floyd Mayweather is 40 years old. He’s been out of the ring for a while. I know he’s top tier, we’re thinking there’s no chance this guy [will lose], but Conor McGregor is very fast individual, he’s got power in both hands. We want to see how age has affected Floyd Mayweather. In my head, Floyd does it hands down, but let’s not forget he’s in there against a 29-year-old hungry man that can hit, that’s fast and that wants it. So it is not a done deal…Guys that come from mixed martial arts, if you’re top level, you will blitz everybody until you come against someone who is technically supreme at boxing because your defence is too open. You saw this with Wladimir and Vitaly Klitschko. When they first came into boxing, especially Wladimir, he was getting knocked out, pick-pocketed, especially when he came against class fighters…They’ve got to tighten up a bit, change the balance, change the positioning. But fitness is second to none.

Danis: I really think Conor’s going to knock him out

Makes Statement

Danis says McGregor will knock out Mayweather.

I’m telling you, he’s really going to knock him out. I really think it’s going to be a bad mismatch, I swear to God. I feel it. If you look at Mayweather: he’s in the strip club every night, he’s at a basketball game, he’s doing all this stuff. He’s not really focused, man. A lot of people don’t understand about Conor; he takes notes after every training session. He goes home and watches the tape, takes notes and literally.. it’s different for him. For Mayweather this is a sport, for us this is a lifestyle. Mayweather’s not a martial artist, so Conor is a different level from him.

McGregor’s father: ‘Absolutely and unequivocally’ not racist

Makes Statement

Tony McGregor insists racism claims against his son are wrong. During the recent world press tour, McGregor was criticised for telling Mayweather to “dance for me, boy” – a phrase that has racial overtones in the United States. He further inflamed the claims by stating that he could not be racist because “I am half-black from the belly button down.” Father Tony says:

Conor is absolutely, unequivocally not racist. It’s not about skin colour. No two combatants would ever get into a ring and the issue would be the colour of their opposing skin. No, absolutely not. It’s a fight issue, not a race issue.

White: ‘McGregor ‘Not a boxer’

Makes Statement

White says that, after watching videos of McGregor boxing, that the Irishman will not beat Mayweather through standard boxing techniques.

All I’ve seen are stuff that he’s [McGregor] sent me, videos that he’s sent me. Listen he’s not a boxer, at the end of the day, Conor McGregor is not a boxer, he’s a fighter. Conor McGregor is the bigger, stronger guy and needs to hit Floyd Mayweather and needs to hurt him. I don’t see him out-pointing Floyd in a boxing match. I see him getting in, turning it into a fight and roughing Floyd up. I believe in this fight Floyd is going to fight traditionally the way that Floyd fights, the best defensive fighter ever.

Robin Black breakdown: McGregor can disrupt boxing

Opinion

MMA analyst Robin Black releases a video, with his take on the McGregor-Mayweather fight, where he suggests that McGregor’s greatest asset in this fight is that he is not immersed in boxing or influenced so strongly by its rigid nature or traditions.

Disruption never comes from within. Every disruption is caused from the outside because everybody on the inside buys into the bullshit…Boxing is so far up it’s own ass, it’s so refined, it’s so specialized, and specialization bases itself on the fact that we all just agree that this is how it is. And there are so many of these agreements that we just go through the motions and then somebody will come along and go, ‘What the fuck? Why are they doing this?…And McGregor has already done this, when he took out Aldo and he would have taken out [Rafael dos Anjos] exactly the same.

He adds that McGregor’s style has moved MMA away from the basic, give and take, Muay Thai approach that was prevalent not so long ago.

He already disrupted that, they don’t do that any more, none of the top guys fight that way. It doesn’t mean [Conor McGregor] can do it [in boxing], it doesn’t mean he can do it at all. But isn’t it cool to see somebody try? Isn’t it fucking cool? Try something so big as to literally disrupt an entire style?  And I’ll leave you on another idea; Bruce Lee said, and I’m paraphrasing, ‘It is always the individual who is more powerful than any style, or a collection of ideas or an institution, because these institutions are based on old truths, or mistruths, or former truths.’

Prankster blags his way into getting backstage with McGregor

Zack Alsop, a YouTuber who specializes in getting backstage access to concerts and events, details how he fooled security at the London world tour press conference for Mayweather, eventually ending up being in the group that was with McGregor when he went onstage.

So this was it… the moment when I’d finally get to fulfill the 4th thing that I wanted to do. Ask Conor whether he’s prefer to fight 20 duck-sized Mayweathers, or one Mayweather-sized duck.

Johnson: McGregor can beat Mayweather ‘if he’s ferocious’

Makes Statement

Johnson says McGregor can beat Mayweather using his ferocity:

I’m riding with Conor. I think Conor, he can probably get it done sooner if he goes out there being ferocious, but I’m going with Conor. I think Conor’s gonna get the job done.

And that McGregor should continue to box after the win.

It’s hard to say. He ain’t gonna get a big check like that in the UFC. I hope Conor goes up there and knock’s Floyd out then he can go ahead and fight the winner of Triple G and Canelo Alvarez.

McGregor defends Mayweather’s use of homophobic slur

Makes Statement

McGregor defends Mayweather calling him a ‘faggot’.

I actually didn’t even hear that. People are so touchy on words. It’s absolutely crazy. If he said that, I couldn’t give a f-ck I think what he was trying to do was to switch it up and get the people back in his favor. I think it was a bit of a shit move to try and instigate that on me. Everyone with a sane mind that is watching knows what way it is. It is what it is. Some dirty tactics out there, but that’s what to expect. The fight game is a ruthless business.

During the press tour event in London, Mayweather says he will fight McGregor in the Octagon.

Unlike the previous venues, the stage is set up as a boxing ring, and has a short Q&A session at the end. After McGregor’s speech Mayweather talks, at one point trying, but failing, to enlist the crowds into singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to McGregor.

McGregor: ‘I run boxing’

Press Conference

McGregor and Mayweather appear at Wembley Arena in London, on the final stop of their world press tour. Unlike the previous venues, the stage is set up as a boxing ring. Mayweather wears a tiger-print top with a set of diamond necklaces, while McGregor arrives to The Foggy Dew, wearing a blue suit:

We have six weeks left from the biggest fight in boxing history, and I’m 29 today. I’m in shock. I get to quadruple my net worth with half a fight…He was wearing high heels yesterday. You should have worn them on the first day you stupid baldy twat…

He then rubs Mayweather’s head and pretends to slap it.

This is my first time in a boxing ring…and in six weeks I run boxing. How the fuck did they let me roll up in here. They got greedy.  This is my boxing ring. I am boxing.

In the Q&A McGregor is asked about his motivation:

They try and mock me. It motivates me to keep going. To conquer the unconquerable. Four years ago I was fighting in front of 500 people. Now I’m here, about to smoke this fool, and if that doesn’t show you what’s possible, I don’t know what does.

Mayweather: McGregor’s my ho and Dana White’s his pimp

Press Conference

McGregor and Mayweather appear together on the third date of their world press tour at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.  After McGregor speaks, Mayweather starts with his Hard Work chant.

I don’t just smell victory. Do you know what I smell? I smell a bitch. This bitch didn’t quit once. This bitch didn’t quite twice. This bitch quite three times.

He then brings out a bag and starts throwing money across the stage. [CMG: They’re all ones!]

This ain’t shit but a circus clown. And a pussy. I ain’t never quit.

When McGregor says, ‘Take them high heels off’ there appears to be a scuffle between members of both teams.

He’s the con artist. Real fighters don’t quit…This is my ho and I threw one dollar bills on this bitch…Dana White’s pimpin’ this bitch.

Press Conference

McGregor and Mayweather appear together on the third date of their world press tour at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. McGregor enters to The Foggy Dew, wearing sunglasses, with no shirt and patterned trousers, under a white fur coat. He starts his speech with:

50 cents a bitch. You and 50 are two fake money bitches. He’s bankrupt and you soon will be.

He then gives Mayweather a copy of Jay-Z’s 4:44 and says Mayweather should follow his example in building an empire. Then McGregor addresses those who have said his comments are racist.

Let’s address the race. A lot of the media seem to be saying I’m against black people. That’s absolutely f-cking ridiculous. Do they not know I’m half black? I’m half black from the bellybutton down.

He then talks about the coat:

The coat’s Polar Bear. I’m a cold c-nt. Someone come up here and stop me walking around this place like I own it. I don’t give a f-ck how hot it is outside, I’m wearing this shit.

Racism still exists but you know, I try to take something negative and turn it into something positive…We all know there’s only 2 types of boys — a white boy and a cowboy — and I’m neither. I’m just joking…I’m not upset at all…A lot of people say that Conor McGregor is racist but I’m not worried about that. It’s about going out there, doing my job. [When he said the boy comment] it is what it is. He’s entitled to feel how he wants to feel. I just want to stay in my zone and stay focused.

McGregor, Mayweather trade insults at Toronto Press Tour show

Press Conference

Appearing at Budweiser Stage, Toronto, on the second date of their World Press Tour, McGregor takes to the stage first, wearing a tailored light blue suit. Mayweather follows wearing a black TMT Canada flag T-shirt. After a brief face-off the two fighters are supposed to take their seats, but they keep shouting at each other. When it is time for his speech McGregor hits the microphone and leads the crowd to chant ‘Fuck the Mayweathers!’

He won’t do shit. Do f-ckin’ nothing. Fuck Showtime too. [To Showtime Sports CEO, Stephen Espinoza] You little Weasel. You’re a f-cking bitch…When Floyd was 28 he was on Oscar De la Hoya’s undercard. Floyd is an old, weak bitch. 50 strippers on the payroll this man has. What’s he doing with that strip club? Shout out to all the stripper bitches on the payroll. At least Rob Kardashian only had one; he has 50.

A word to all the pundit pussies. You’re f-cking crazy if you think this man has a chance. His head is too small. I’ll bounce his head off the canvas and dribble that shit. he’s never fought a day in his life, he’s a runner. He’s boxings biggest bitch.

What the f-ck is he wearing? He looks like a little breakdancer. 12-year-old. He’s 40! You’re 40 years of age. What are you doing carrying a schoolbag on stage? You can’t even read.

Mayweather starts with his Hard Work chant.

One thing we do know. The f-cking fans can’t fight for you…We’re not talking about being at the top for 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years. Motherf-cker, 21 years. I can’t read but I make money. [CMG: You owe money]

Then he opens his backpack.

We gonna show you what the boss looks like. If you believe in yourself what you say you do bet your whole fight check you bitch. [CMG: No f-cking problem. Send the fu-cking contract…You know I like you [CMG: You love me]. And you all got the f-cking nerve to believe in a fighter who’s a quitter. I don’t quit. I don’t fold under pressure. I’m the best, and I know I’m the best.

Mayweather takes an Irish flag from a fan and walks around in it, prompting McGregor to grab the backpack.

There’s only about five grand in here!

Mayweather gives the flag to McGregor, who throws it at him. They then face off for a minute before leaving the stage.

McGregor: I’m building an empire

Interview

Talking after the press conference, McGregor talks about Mayweather’s tax troubles:

I believe he has to take this fight. He’s in a very dire financial situation. But, I’m still trying to learn this tax game as well. I’m only new money… Just have the checks ready and I’m gonna steam through your boy, take the bread and take off his whole game.

On his rapid success:

I’m grateful that this is my life. Building up this empire, and I’m still only 28. When Floyd was 28, he was nowhere near this level. I’m just a happy, hardworking young man, enjoying life.

And about his suit and new clothing line:

I love fashion. Fashion is very similar to fighting — it’s all about the small details.

After meeting McGregor for the first time onstage at the Staples Center, Mayweather gives his speech:

Hard work! Hard work! I still got it…21 is the number, and they say, ‘Why is 21 a number?’ ‘Cos that’s how long I’ve been kickin’ ass. I don’t give a f-ck if it’s the ring. I don’t care if it’s an octagon. Put me there and I’ll be kicking ass. You put ’em up and I’m gonna knock ’em down like bowling pins.

Mayweather then opens a backpack and pulls out $100 million check.

Let’s we show you motherf-ckers what a $100m fighter looks like. [CMG: That’s for the taxman] You’re right I’m from the IRS and I’m gonna tax your ass…We knew I was the A-side that’s why this bitch has to come to the boxing ring. He look good for a seven figure fighter. I’m a nine-figure fighter.

We talking about from the 90s to now. We talking about World Champion 18 years. And you know what? If you want eight-ounce gloves on, you put four-ounce gloves on. Don’t fool the public. And we know Mr Tap-Out like to quit. And you will wave that white flag. I guarantee you go out on your face or on your back.

You can do whatever you want to do. But God don’t make mistakes. And God only made one thing perfect, and that’s my boxing record.
