Mayweather also took the chance to poke fun at McGregor's only UFC loss, which came at the hands of Nate Diaz.
"He's in a f***ing tracksuit", McGregor said.
Over the course of his career, Mayweather has generated 20 million views and $1.3 billion in revenue on pay-per-view, according to Showtime Sports head Stephen Espinoza. With a force in sports and fashion like Conor, it makes our job exciting to create unique looks that enhances his natural confidence and power.
Tuesday's press conference degenerated into the expected curse-off between the fighters, who have been brought together in what many see as a tawdry and cynical attempt to capture some of the younger fans who have been tempted away from boxing by the no-holds-barred brawlfest that is the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
If that's not enough, CBS will be simulcasting the coverage on its platforms. But a close-up picture of the suit revealed that the pinstripes were made up of the phrase "F-- You" repeated vertically over and over. Conor responded, "Don't be talking sh*t - you do give a f*ck if it's an Octagon".
These are definitely big words from McGregor, but his opponent has not lost a single professional bout inside a boxing ring.
In a post-press conference chat with ESPN, Conor again poked fun at the boxer's size, stating, "He's a small man. He looks frail to me". Of course, McGregor boosters will note that they call the Irish star "Mystic Mac" for a reason. We both landed at the same time and I was waiting for him to get out of the plane. He wants the gloves up, no problem.
