Live Report: Mayweather McGregor London Press Conference

Conor McGregor is coming under fire for making more racially driven comments during his Floyd Mayweather fight press tour

"I'd love to see that".

Prior to a fight against Jose Aldo, McGregor said, "I own Rio de Janeiro".

"Nobody knows that squared circle like me", Mayweather told reporters.

"That's [fighting Khabib in Russia] certainly an option that I'm exploring", McGregor said, as quoted on MMAMania.

As for whether his return will be this year or in 2018, the 29-year-old believes he will be fighting in the octagon sooner rather than later.

Israel says to reopen Al Aqsa Mosque on Sunday
More than 300 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of Israeli forces since October 2015, when the tensions intensified. Jaffa Gate, heavily used by tourists and near the Old City's Jewish Quarter, was open but with a heavy police presence.


While it's unlikely that many people are going to agree with White on this stance, there is no denying that Mayweather and McGregor's chaotic press conference did a great deal to boost the hype and visibility of their August 26 showdown. There's a brilliant piece by Pete Carroll about another UFC guy, Neil Seery, a Dublin lad.and you read that piece and you actually understand a bit about the world that shaped McGregor and where he's come from. "I've been doing this over 20 years". McGregor wanted this fight.

The fighters will battle in the ring on August 26 and it's going to be expensive for fans to watch the fight.

During his two-decade long career, the 5-foot-8, 151-pound Mayweather won the WBC super featherweight, lightweight, welterweight and light middleweight crowns, along with the IBF welterweight title, WBA (Super) light middleweight and (Super) welterweight titles and WBO welterweight championship. A fight against the undefeated Nurmagomedov would take that a step further.

In the past, Floyd Mayweather has picked up an impressive record of 49-0.

But Australian Geale - who previously held the IBF, WBA and IBO belts in the middleweight division - is unimpressed with the "circus" that is Mayweather and McGregor, believing it is disrespectful to boxing. "And then we'll see if you're all talk or not".
