Wednesday evening, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will hit the stage for their second press conference in Toronto ahead of their August 26th fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
This marks the second stop of the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor world tour, which will see both fighters take to the stage in two more cities after tonight’s event in Toronto, Canada.
The first stop of the tour took place Tuesday in California at the Staples Center, where the pair both delivered speeches to a packed arena. Both men boldly predicted a finish in the fight as McGregor declared that he would stop Mayweather in the first four rounds of the fight, while Mayweather simply stated that Conor McGregor would either go out on his back or flat on his face.
UFC President Dana White revealed before the press conference that McGregor promised him first that he would KO Mayweather within 4 rounds:
“Last night I landed at LAX and Conor landed at the same time from Ireland. We both landed at the same time and I was waiting for him to get out of the plane. He gets off a flight from Ireland, looks like he was just fitted at Armani, walks off the plan and says, ‘I will knock this man out within four rounds.”’
Mayweather then predicted a finish at the press conference, stating:
“And guess what, I’m a old man,” Mayweather said. “I’m a old man. I’m not even the same man I was 20 years ago. I’m not the same fighter I was 10 years ago. I’m not the same fighter I was five years ago. I’m not the same fighter I was two years ago. But, I got enough to beat you. And, we know Mr. tapout like to quit and you will wave that white flag. And I’m guaranteeing you this. You’re going out on your face or you’re going out on your back. Now which way you want to go?”
Tune in above on Wednesday to see who comes out ahead in the war of words in Toronto!
