Things escalated several levels at Wednesday’s Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor press conference.
The two combat sports superstars held nothing back and threw some heavy trash-talking at one another during the second leg of their world tour in Toronto. The event took a 180 degree turn from yesterday’s press conference in Los Angeles, as McGregor seemed to get the better of the verbal exchanges and get the more positive reaction from the crowd.
There are two more press conferences left in the world tour to promote the Mayweather vs. McGregor boxing match, which set to go down on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas. Below is how the pros in the MMA world reacted to the second press conference:
