Conor McGregor has delivered another reminder of his extravagant lifestyle by posting a photo of his collection of Rolls Royces.
McGregor is very good at what he does, which is mixed martial arts, and he has done for his sport what the Beatles did for pop music, taken it to a huge worldwide audience. This fight is boxing on steroids.
Mayweather was asked by TMZ about some of McGregor's comments during the press tour and mostly deferred, saying,"Racism still exists but you know, I try to take something negative and turn it into something positive". "Before he fought me he was (getting paid) 20,000 to show and 20,000 to win". Currently, Mayweather is tied with Rocky Marciano at 49-0.
Jeff Horn's hopes of facing Mayweather appear to be dashed after the American boxing great announced next month's his fight with McGregor will be his last.
He later documented a trip through NY at night time in one of the sports cars with the caption: "The Mac Life" in another insight into his glamorous lifestyle.
With illegal streams certain to be running this event to anyone who doesn't fancy paying for it, hopes of setting new pay-per-view records when these two superstars lock horns may end up being fanciful and yet the biggest reputation wrecked at the end of all this may be McGregor's.
For Mayweather, the years are unlikely to have done more than fractionally diminish the kind of hand speed, and punch connection rate, which will make McGregor feel like he is facing a combination of Jesse James and Wyatt Earp.
His lack of pro boxing experience has led many to predict an easy victory for "Money" Mayweather, who came out of retirement in March. It was amusing that Mayweather joked about the money being small bills made for McGregor, at the same time wearing platform shoes that McGregor later made fun of. If nothing else having Mayweather and McGregor mix it up, even verbally, would be entertaining to WWE fans. During these press conferences, there were creative moments, and there was also a lot of unneeded cursing.
Vargas was never too high on McGregor's chances to begin with.
