FACE-OFF: Mayweather and McGregor

Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather is the heavy favourite to win his bout against mixed marital arts champion Conor McGregor but the Irishman again won the war of words at their media conference in Toronto on Wednesday.

A day after McGregor mercilessly mocked the American in Los Angeles to launch a four-day international promotional tour for their August 26 fight, the Irishman ridiculed Mayweather’s attire, saying: “How do I look? He’s 40!

“Dress your age, carrying a school bag on stage.

“What are you doing with a school bag on stage? You can’t even read.”

Mayweather, dressed casually for a second straight day in a t-shirt and cap while McGregor again wore a suit, did his best to counter and hit back with: “I’m the [one] that can’t read? I do numbers, I make money.

“You owe money,” McGregor responded, referring to reports that Mayweather earlier this month asked the IRS for more time to pay his 2015 tax bill.”
